Another fun photo of the Debenham sisters in the late 1920s, from their classic book "Motor-Cycling for Women." Winter does not deter these adventurous ladies.

Renee left school at 15, and went into the family business... Around this time, Renee began riding in earnest on a James Captain 198cc, but at only 7 stone and of slender build the skill of trials riding was not easy to master... From humble beginnings she emerged as Britain’s best known lady rider in a career spanning a quarter of a century.

Renee Bennett’s interest in trials riding began watching father ‘Wag‘, an East London nickname for ‘Charles‘, riding motorcycles around the docks near his cycle and motorcycle shop. Renee’s parents were hard working East Londoners. They opened their first shop in the late 1920’s in Victoria Dock Road.

1935 all-women's race in the Hague, Holland.

This has got to be Poncho the dog with Betty and Nancy Debenham, and friend riding their BSAs in the early 1920s... going on some wild adventure as usual.

Finally I found her! This is a photo of Jennie Forrie in 1923 who was banned from competing in hill climb events because she was the only female, but still "crashed" the Delaware Gap event and went for it, blowing everyone away. Made several newspapers.

1940s ride and picnic... looks like a fun crew of good people
