Annie Kopchovsky


If you’re looking for an inspiring tale, it’s hard to top that of Annie Kopchovsky, who left her home in 1894 to cycle around the world on her 42-pound Columbia bicycle. Not only did she circle the earth within 15 months, claiming the title of first woman to bike around the globe, but she also earned $5,000 en route – a small fortune for the time – and proved to a skeptical public just what a woman was capable of.

The website Annie Londonderry (Annie agreed to go by the last name to promote a product) tells more about her life and you can also order the book about her story, Around The World on Two Wheels.
