Riding Out

Riding Out: A Journey of Love, Loss and New Beginnings

Riding Out: A Journey of Love, Loss and New Beginnings

2022 will see the publication of my first book, Riding Out – a tale of cycling 3,427 miles around pandemic Britain.

The book begins in October 2020 at the northernmost point of Britain – the Muckle Flugga lighthouse in Shetland – before going on to chart my journey around the country, through 55 counties.

I met hundreds of inspiring Britons who were all drawing strength from their situations and finding hope in the darkness. This is a tale of the nation’s resilience and determination, the healing power of gentle exercise, and how new beginnings emerge with new scenery.  

To coincide with the book’s launch, my national theatre tour will visit more than 50 venues across the UK and recreates the epic journey through a series of intimate anecdotes, high quality short films, exclusive footage, photos and audio clips. 

You can buy the book through Waterstones here or request it at your local bookshop. If you would like to enquire about speaking engagements please get in touch with me directly here.
