Beryl Burton autobiog reprint

The recent success of British cyclists at the Beijing Olympics and 2008 world championships is only the most recent episode in a long history of British success in pedal-powered sport. One of the greatest of British racing cyclists was Yorkshire-born Beryl Burton, whose winning career spanned more than three decades.

Twice world road race champion and five times world pursuit champion, Burton not only rode the furthest distance in the 1967 UK national 12 hour championships but set a competition record for the event that was better than the mens’ record of the day and still stands today.

With the renewed national interest in cycling, Beryl’s autobiography,
“Personal Best”, has been re-issued so that a new audience can enjoy reading her amazing story. It is available priced £19.95 plus £2.50 P&#38P from Mercian Manuals, tel: 01676 533304.
