'Emily Chappell is one of the most inspiring athletes on the planet. Humble, tender and alive with unimaginable grit, this book makes us see just how much is possible.'
Chris Cleave, author of The Other Hand and Everyone Brave is Forgiven
Her descriptions of what goes on in a rider's head in the middle of a race are on a par with Tim Krabbé. Lyrical writing and compelling reading - a real treat'
Isabel Best, author of Queens of Pain
'A first class cyclist and an even better writer'
Robert Penn, author of It's All About the Bike
'Chappell is a marvellous writer, and the book reads rather like a bike ride with its succession of turns and unexpected discoveries ... The joy of cycling is at its heart, however; if any book could make you consider chucking in your desk job and throwing on some Lycra, this could be it.'
