Emily Chappell's story of transformation into a cross-continental bike racer, pushing the limits of her endurance.

Where There's A WillEmily Chappell

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, waking up 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; feeding in bursts and navigating on the go. We experience the crippling self-doubt of the ultra-distance racer, the confusing intensity of winning and the desperation of losing a dear friend who understood all of this.

'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.'
