Winter Watch Party: All about Beryl Burton

Event
Description 

The greatest of all time

Commonly cited as one of cycling's greatest of all time, multiple national champion, seven times world champion, and record holder against both men and women, Beryl Burton set a standard that hasn't been touched since.

In Beryl Burton, Summer Calendar of Sport (1986) we look back at a life spent racing through the 1960s, 1970s and beyond, offering a candid interview with Beryl herself and a looking at a typical race day at her local TT. 

The Q&A will delve into Beryl's unique mindset, her physical achievements, the profile she gave to women's cycling, recognition for women's sport today and creating a healthy attitude towards cycling.

Join us for a film festival experience, with incredible cycling films and panel discussions with inspirational guests, all from the comfort of your own home.
