Women Bike Book Club
When Dervla Murphy was ten, she was given a bicycle and an atlas, and within days she was secretly planning a trip from Ireland to India. At the age of 31, in 1963, she finally set off!
This book is based on the daily diary she kept while riding halfway across the world on her trusty steed, Roz.
A lone woman on a bicycle (with a revolver in her pocket) was an almost unknown occurrence at the time. Read to learn more about this trailblazing bike tourer, who continues to explore the world well into her 80’s!
