Su­per Sheri­dan

Cycling Weekly - - Letters -

I read with great in­ter­est the fea­ture on place-to-place record rides (CW Oc­to­ber 19). There is a na­tional record here in Ire­land, set in May 1952 by Eileen Sheri­dan, of 5hr 50min 10sec for the Dublin to Gal­way ride. The dis­tance on the roads at that time was 134 miles. Her record is 20 min­utes slower than the men’s record of 5hr 30min 27sec set by Mel Sut­cliff in Septem­ber 1994.

Con­sid­er­ing the equip­ment used by Ms Sheri­dan, it puts her ride in per­spec­tive.
