She Rides Like the Wind - The Story of Alfonsina Strada

Author(s): Joan Negrescolor; Little Gestalten (Editor)

Non-Fiction (All Ages)

It wasn't that long ago that girls were forbidden to ride bicycles. Also, it wasn't long ago that girls had to dress up as boys in order to stand out in society. This is the case of Alfonsina, a girl who loved to ride her bicycle, but had to fight hard for her dream. Alfonsina Strada (1891-1959) was the first woman to compete in Giro d'Italia, in 1924. The Queen of the Pedal, as she was called, is, today, a symbol of strength and resilience - which also led to her nickname devil in a dress.
