Motorcycling pioneer

Hey Pitstop followers,

Got some news about one of the authors from Woodslane, one of our partners in bringing you great books.

The wonderful people of Channel 10’s television show RPM, will be taking some time to talk to one of our authors, Sally-Anne Fowles.

Author of the wonderfully unique and ground-breaking book Fast Women: Pioneering Australian MotorcyclistsSally-Anne will be interviewed this Sunday afternoon (April 29th) at 4pm.

“There is nothing to compare with motor cycling and I’m sorry for those poor people who cannot indulge in it.  It is wonderfully exhilarating and it is impossible to describe the glorious sensation that one gets when travelling on a speedy machine. I’m glad I’ve got a motor cycle and I don’t think I’ll ever give it up” Miss Jane Queain 1910

To stare across the expanse of a dry salt lake with an unseeable finish line, the surface is as hard as concrete and as loose as marbles, and your goal – a land speed record! The machine you ride is known as “The Missile”. This Australian woman’s bravery, skill and determination will leave you spellbound!
Have you dreamt of hitting the open road ? The “Big Lap” perhaps ? In the height of summer 1950, a 21 year old woman set off alone on an unimaginable epic quest from one side of the country to the other and back with no G.P.S, no mobile phone, limited services and bitumen being a rare treat. You will be enchanted by her courageous spirit!
The pursuit of your dreams always comes with the element of fear.  Breaking through this fear always comes with the element of courage.  Read the stories of these extraordinary Australian heroines who have broken the stereotypical mould and they will not only inspire you but will also leave you in awe of their courage and dedication in pursuit of their passion.

Make sure to catch her interview this Sunday afternoon with Matt White at 4pm!
