A woman to inspire -- Alfonsina Strada

From Italian Cycling Journal
Big thanks to Marc Walter. for giving me the heads up on this one ....

Nice article about her on the Italian Cycling Journal, some of which also appears on Wikipedia.

<< In the early 1900's there were a few European women who were bicyclists, but their skill was seen as more like a circus act, and people believed that they were possessed by the devil, or considered to be amoral and certainly were not normal wholesome women. >>
