We are rolling way back to the late 1800s on this episode to talk about Kittie Knox, a female African American cyclist who as a teenager took cycling to a new level for both women and women of color. AP digs deep into Kittie’s life and what it was like to be a cyclist in the 1890s.

    Thanks for the history lesson! I was aware of Major Taylor, who established world records while dealing with the color barrier in those same decades, but not at all Kittie Knox. Seems they both found Massachusetts to be more fertile ground for support and success at that time.
