In late 2018, ultra-endurance MTB athlete Kait Boyle was in a severe car accident. In response, her community raised $16,535 to support her through her recovery, during which Kait spent 84 days confined to a wheelchair and crutches and unable to move freely outside. “You Are Unlimited: 84 Days Outside” is a two-fold “matching” campaign: starting Oct 1, Kait is spending 84 consecutive days biking, bikepacking, running, hiking, backpacking, whitewater canoe/kayaking, skiing, or camping, and raising $16,535 for The Cairn Project’s grants program to get more girls outside!
Kait Boyle, 24-hour World Champion and ultra-endurance record holder, loves moving outside. She first found mountain biking as a way to move outside while rehabbing a climbing injury in 2011. In the initial years, she fell in love with singlespeeding, bikepacked the Great Divide Mountain Bike route, and started racing ultra-endurance races. She never looked back on climbing and has since pursued a life on two knobby tires, seeking long single-track oriented bikepacking expeditions and pushing herself to become the fastest ultra-endurance racer she can be.
