Eileen Sheridan celebrated her 96th birthday on 18 October. The English rider was one of the most celebrated female cyclists in the 1940s and 1950s. She broke all 21 long distance and place-to-place records on the books of the Women’s Road Records Association. In 1954, she rode from Lands End to John O’ Groats in only two days eleven hours, thereby smashing the previous record. Nicknamed “the Mighty Atom,” she had a physical and mental capacity for superlative performance and was at the forefront of women’s cycling for more than a decade.
