She Rides Like the Wind is the story of Alfonsina Strada, a woman who loved to ride her bicycle, but had to fight hard for her dream.

Iconic cyclist Alfonsina Strada represents the wheels of change that broke down gender barriers in the early 20th-century. Known as the Pedal Queen, she resisted conformity in 1924 by taking part in the prestigious Giro D’Italia and many more races. Rich in illustrative color and packed with a mighty message about injustices sure to get you off your saddle, She Rides Like the Wind demonstrates that a single brave person can change society, prejudices, and how people think.
