An Index of Inspiring Lady Cyclists
Wheelwomen features short profiles of the women who made cycling history. Many of these individuals appear on the margins of cycling history, but they deserve attention in their own right. The women profiled here were not only pioneering lady cyclists, but led accomplished lives in other ways as well.
This page toasts our cycling sisters past and present and contextualizes their experiences a-wheel. Watch for features on suffragettes The Pankhursts, activist Frances Willard, record-smasher Tessie Reynolds, society cyclist The Countess of Warwick, racer Beryl Burton and more.
