Meet Elspeth Beard

In 1982, at the age of just 23, Elspeth Beard set off from London on a 35,000-mile, solo adventure around the world on BMW R 60/6 – the first British woman to complete such a journey.

The story of her unique, life-changing adventure has just been published in her book, Lone Rider. Elspeth will be signing copies at the Event.
