Lone Rider by Elspeth Beard

£9.99 inc. Vat


Elspeth Beard, the first British woman to motorcycle around the world! This is a fascinating, moving and inspiring story of her 35,000 mile solo adventure in 1982.

As well as being the story of a great adventure, this is also a wonderful coming-of-age memoir; a story of love and loss and coming to terms with being an adventurous soul in an ordered world; and about how some journeys take thirty years to make sense of.

Elspeth features in RAMM’s current exhibition of First Women by photographer Anita Corbin, a unique collection of 100 portraits capturing women in the UK who were “first” in their field of achievement.
