Vedangi Kulkarni, lejog veteran

(or nearly so … )

Vedangi Kulkarni, a 19-year-old cyclist, will set off in June 2018 in an attempt to become the fastest woman to cycle around the world unsupported. Vedangi plans to ride between 260 and 300 kilometres per day and make it around the world within 130 days. She will set off from and finish in Perth, Australia.

In April, Vedangi rode from Bournemouth to John o’Groats, a journey of 1,200 miles. You can read about the adventure at Vedangi’s blog, Cycling to John O’ Groats.
