The inspirational adventurer and endurance cyclist Emily Chappell discusses her acclaimed books and remarkable life story at her first-ever live event in Twickenham.

Emily Chappell was not sporty at school, but when she reached her mid-20s, she began to make up for lost time. In 2016, she cycled 4000km in 13 days, from Belgium to Turkey, riding day and night to become the first woman home in The Transcontinental race. Emily’s 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 has dramatically changed her course through life several times, her immense athletic achievements matched by the emotional articulacy of a born writer. She will be in conversation with former Procycling magazine writer and regular event host at The Exchange, Duncan Steer.
