About Where There's a Will

In 2015 Emily Chappell embarked on a formidable new bike race: The Transcontinental. 4,000km across Europe, unassisted, in the shortest time possible.

On her first attempt she made it only halfway where she found herself suddenly on her back in a field, floored by the physical and mental exertion.

A year later she entered the race again – and won.

Where There’s a Will takes us into Emily Chappell’s race, grinding up mountain passes and charging down the other side; snatching twenty minutes’ sleep on the outskirts of a village before jumping back on the bike to surge ahead for another day; eating whatever comes her way and navigating on the go. We experience the crippling self-doubt of the ultra-distance racer, the confusing intensity of winning and the devastation of losing a dear friend who understood all of this.

Buy a signed copy on the night for £10 (usually £14.99)

Please note Jools, Max and Kat's books will also be available for sale on the night! (pricing tbc)

We serve craft on draught, natural wines, Square Mile coffee and food is available until 9pm (we’re open until 10pm).

49 Old St. EC1V 9HX.

FREE! RSVP so we know how much space to clear.

Emily Chappell worked as a cycle courier in London for many years, telling her story in What Goes Around. Since then she has explored the world on her bike and committed to supporting others to do the same, as a founder of The Adventure Syndicate. Her writing has featured in Vogue, Cyclist, National Geographic and the Guardian.
