This episode of Explore by The Cycling Podcast features Hannah Troop in conversation with Emily Chappell, who used to criss-cross London delivering and picking up parcels as a bike courier before discovering long-distance and endurance cycling.
Chappell was the first woman to finish the 2016 Transcontinental race and her latest book, Where There's A Will, tells the story of how she won the race across Europe at the second attempt. The previous year she made it halfway before abandoning.
In the second part of this episode, Ian Boswell talks to another rider who has crossed a continent by bike, albeit without leaving home. Timothy Rugg, a three-time stage winner at the Tour of Rwanda, set out to race across the United States on his turbo trainer.
