History can be changed by the smallest act, even riding a bike. Revolutions by Hannah Ross highlights the forgotten females from cycling history and documents how cycling has been a driver of social and sexual change. From the streets of 1940s Paris, to the heart of the fight for suffrage, bicycles have been symbols of independence for some and lifelines for others. In this celebratory book, Hannah Ross introduces us to the women that changed the world through cycling, many of whom have been marginalised and forgotten. 

About the author: Hannah Ross works for an independent publisher in London and volunteers for a charity that teaches refugee women to ride bikes. Given the choice, she would rather be pedalling up the side of a mountain than almost anywhere else
