"Until 1894 there were no female sport stars, no product endorsement deals, and no young mothers with the chutzpah to circle the globe on a bicycle. Annie Kopchovsky changed all of that ... a high-stakes bet between two wealthy merchants that a woman could not ride around the world on a bicycle, as Thomas Stevens had a few years before. Annie rose to the challenge ... and so began one of the greatest escapades-- and publicity stunts-- of the Victorian Age."--Publisher's description.

I wish that there was a book in any format that general population can take out. At this moment the only copy is through Accessible Services, which does not seem available to me.

Traveling around the world on a bicycle in 1894-1895 on a wager, Annie Londonerry becomes the first woman to do so. An interesting story of a female pioneer, showman and possibly con-woman at times. It's a look at the times for sure, and should be read by those interested in the history of the bicycle.
