That Emily Chappell: A cycle courier takes on the world


Event Details


A bike messenger with itchy wheels, Emily Chappell has spent the last three years cycling through some of the world’s most remote and inhospitable regions. After an 18-month crossing of Asia, which took her through the badlands of Baluchistan, the Taklamakan desert and the high mountain passes of Qinghai and the Karakoram, she now turns her attention to the American continent, and has just completed a winter journey from Anchorage to Seattle, riding on four-inch tyres through the snow and ice of the Alaska Highway, and camping out at temperatures as low as -40°C.
