Emily Chappell

Emily Chappell has been riding more-or-less full-time ever since she took the step from London commuter to cycle courier in 2008. Her journeys have taken her across several continents, through some of the world’s coldest winters, and to the finish line of the Transcontinental Race, in which she was the first woman to finish in 2016. 

With a background in literature and academia, Emily is often drawn to the more cerebral side of cycling, reads any book about cycling history that she can get her hands on, and has written two of her own.
