she is the first female cyclist shown on a postage stamp.

Great to know that! Thank you, bicyclestamps. I thought I didn't see any older!

Here this girl is in modern gear, on lighter machine.

Thanks, Rod!
The Military Geographic Institute - they must be in charge of map making? Great to know.

This one is - simplified circles and riding positioned racers - which are the exact trace of US stamp from 1972, summer Olympic Games in Munich (featured in this thread on p18).

Hi bicyclestamps - that is the ultimate! (I read about Stefan Gruev, but no lines are telling me his activities in bicycle racing.. ) I have looked up anything like it, but couldn't find - instead, here is a wheel which suggest us nothing else than a bicycle.

Stephan Gruev has been a graphic designer - he has also dealt with postage stamps and philatelic products in the artistic council of the Bulgarian Post. Here is a short biography:

As far as I remember the stamp shows a self-portrait (look at the pencil behind his ear).

Hi bicyclestamps - I read about completely different person by googling the name... he was a Macedonian Bulgarian revolutionary activist! Good to know that the guy with pencil on ear is related to stamp design.

And the rims!
It must be fun playing with them and here are more.. they are rotating fast!

One more wheel, together with a Laurel brunch - of course this is for the famous Peace Race started in 1948. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peace_Race
