Kajsa has less than 200km to get to her 50,000km target. A good long day tomorrow perhaps??  Go Kajsa  :thumbsup:

Well it'll be today, and as the tracker has just fired up, probably in the next hour or two that Kajsa will break the 50,000 km mark.

Looks like live-streaming the rollover didn't go according to plan, but I assume that means she's done it:  https://t.co/yqeoLcsf8W

There was a celebration ride too, in That Nottingham.  In which I finally got to ride with (and congratulate) Kajsa, and I witnessed teethgrinder OTP refuse the offer of CAKE  :o

Kajsa has done her last 100 miler of the year. 3 days to go (as it was a leap year this year)  :thumbsup:

Thanks both!

Not sure I'll be able to make it, but I can at least now start pondering the logistics!

Bikes were ridden, cheers were cheered, tears were shed, scones may have been consumed.
Am super impressed not only by what she's done but also the manner in which she did it.

Well done Kajsa indeed!  :thumbsup:

Yes.  She's also very funny and that's far more important for the world!

32,326 miles.........A fantastic achievement.

Congratulations Kajsa and congratulations also should go to her Mother and all the others that have supported her throughout the year.
