Reviews

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 Krabbe. 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
For What Goes Around: 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. * DIVA *
Fascinating * New Statesman *
This memoir of a cycle courier and her love affair with the capital delivers the goods in style...Chappell is a gifted storyteller. She deftly weaves in a plotted history of couriering, from the explosion of the industry in the late 1980s...through to its gentle decline at the hand of email attachments, file sharing and electronic signatures...In and out of all this, fine words flow on the simple but profound pleasure of floating through the city on a bicycle - of the "strange sense of stillness", and "the energy of sheer motion itself. * Observer *
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
Lyrical language and imaginative similes that allow a peek through the other-dimension-like lens of a sleep-deprived cyclist in a foreign land ... this is a book for the ultra-cyclist within us all: a reminder that we are capable of more than we may believe * Road *
