Happy Mothers Day

Due to reader demand, here's a picture of the worlds greatest ever female cyclist. The one, the only Beryl Burton. She's an superb example for today. She struggled against illness as a child, family conflicts, and amazed all with legendary physical feats of endurance in a male-dominated sport. Her incredible achievements were largely ignored by her own country. She died doing the thing she loved the most.

This Mothers Day, together with Australia's great Irene Plowman, we salute the magnificent Beryl Burton.
