Cyclist travels 32,000 miles and breaks 77-year-old world record

A woman has set a new world record after cycling 32,326 miles (about 52,025 km) in 12 months.

Kajsa Tylen, 40, from Nottingham, broke Billie Fleming's 1938 record of 29,604 miles (47,642 km) on 24 November, but continued cycling until the end of the year.

She has cycled every day since 1 January riding across England and parts of mainland Europe.

She says she took on the challenge to inspire people to do more exercise.
