When actress Maxine Peake was given cyclist Beryl Burton's autobiography she questioned why no one had ever written a play about Britain's unsung sporting legend, and so she wrote it herself.
As a child doctors told Beryl that she could never take part in strenuous activities due to a heart condition. Beryl went on to become the greatest woman on two wheels, dominating the sport in the 50s, 60s and 70s: five times world-pursuit champion, thirteen times national champion, twice road-racing world champion, British record holder, world record holder, MBE, OBE.
