Emily Chappell: Epic Tales Of Cycling Adventure

Emily Chappell’s Epic Tales of Cycling Adventure comes to Future Yard on Wednesday 13th September.

The inspirational adventurer Emily Chappell shares stories from her epic round-the-world travels and remarkable life.

Until her mid-20s, Emily Chappell had an office job and was not sporty at all. But then, she made up for lost time: after working as a cycle courier, she took on a round-the-world trip and, then, endurance bike racing. In 2016, she cycled 4000km in 13 days, from Belgium to Turkey, to become the first woman home in The Transcontinental race. Her account of the experience, ‘Where There’s a Will’, part-travelogue, part-open-hearted memoir, was nominated at the 2020 Daily Telegraph Sports Books of the Year awards.

Emily has also completed numerous other long-distance cycling adventures (Anchorage to Seattle; Wales to Japan; across Iceland). Her acclaimed first book, What Goes Around, a memoir of her life as a cycle courier also took readers inside another unknown world, showing sides of London life normally hidden from view.

Emily will be talking about her epic adventures and all matters arising, in an evening of evocative and inspiring conversation with former Procycling magazine writer, Duncan Steer.
