A Year in the Saddle - One woman, one year, one world record!

Posted by Viv Wilson on

Here at the Booband office we love nothing more than inspirational stories of women of any age, level of fitness and size getting out there and getting active.  Recently we were particularly motivated by Kajsa Tyler and her year long journey to promote and inspire a healthy lifestyle for all.

Her inspiration to cycle every day for a year came came from a British lady named Billie Dovey who, 77 years ago, set the women's record for Furthest Distance Cycled in a Year.  She set out to ride as far as she could in a year to promote healthy living for women and she rode every day on a 3-speed road bike covering 29,603 miles and often finishing the day giving a talk on the health benefits of cycling.

For more information on Kajsa and her mission to get adults active and to feel good about themselves you can visit her website www.ayearinthesaddle.com

So instead of asking people to donate money to a worthwhile cause, she wants donation of SWEAT – a pledge to make a lifestyle change in 2016. The idea is that people make a pledge - an activity goal - and that is followed by their donations of minutes of sweat while training, and by the end of 2016  there will be a total of how many hours of exercise have been donated.

We wish Kajsa all the best with her challenge and hope that both hers and Billie's stories will motivate you to set an activity goal before the end of 2016.

Good luck from all the Booband Team.
