Beryl Burton - greatest bicyclist you never heard of

She was an amateur biker who beat all the best in the world including men - she was the fastest biker in the world. She was women's champion for 25 years. Her world record for 12 hour race still stands - no man nor woman has matched it. Her daughter competed against her and sometimes won; she died doing what she loved, training.
