Sheroes On Wheels

On October 20, 1895, Annie Londonderry was the first woman who biked around the world. “I am a journalist and ‘a new woman,’” she wrote, “if that term means that I believe I can do anything that any man can do.” Today, we have more women taking on the road to cycle. These women are road SHEroes. The presence of women cycling on the road not only encourages more people to bike, it also brings different issues such as safety, fitness, and environment into everyday conversations. Women on wheels symbolize courage and empowerment. For them, changing your lifestyle means changing the world. Get to know your road #SHEro and what she fights for through cycling.
