My Epic Cycling Journey With Emily Chappell

Thu Jun 13 @ 6:30 pm

Cycle Chesterfield is excited to present an inspiring talk by renowned cycle adventurer and explorer, Emily Chappell. Join us for an evening of stories and insights into Emily’s remarkable journey through the world of cycling.

About Emily Chappell

Emily’s passion for two-wheeled adventures has taken her across continents. From her beginnings as a cycle courier in London to her awe-inspiring achievements as an ultra-distance racer, Emily’s story is one of determination, resilience, and the sheer joy of pedal-powered exploration.

Emily’s first book, What Goes Around tells the story of her life as a cycle courier, delving into one of London’s most fascinating subcultures.

Emily has cycled across Asia, through Iceland and North America, and ridden tens of thousands of miles around the UK and Europe. She won the prestigious Transcontinental Race in 2016, covering nearly 4,000km across Europe, non-stop and self-supported. Her award-winning second book, Where There’s A Will, describes her transformation from courier to ultra-distance racer.

Emily now leads an annual charity ride around the entire route of the Tour de France, and is much in demand as a speaker, journalist and presenter. She is also involved in promoting cycling for all. Her writing has appeared in numerous cycling publications, and in the national press.

Both of Emily’s books are available to order when you buy your ticket, Emily will be signing books after the talk.
