Not wanting to lose her skills and balance, Kishori rediscovered cycling at a Cycling UK Big Bike Revival event in 2017. Since then, Kishori has gone on to be a founding member of the Walsall Arboretum Community Cycle Club. A retired doctor, Kishori is passionate about the benefits of cycling for health and fitness. Kishori also believes in the benefits of cycling in a social group in order to stay connected to other people and the local community. She has actively promoted community cycling in Walsall and has appeared on local television and radio.

Cycling has given me a new lease of life.

- Kishori Agrawal

Kishori says, “Cycling has given me a new lease of life. I feel more energetic and active, it’s given me an opportunity to get out in the fresh air and meet other likeminded people.

“I’m staying motivated and keeping my age-related health problems at bay and most of all leading an independent life and feeling happy. My dream is to go cycling with my children and grandchildren by canal for miles.”

Cycling UK’s 100 Women in Cycling is an annual list celebrating inspirational women who are encouraging others to take part in this wonderful and life-enhancing activity.
