‘We’ll all recognise ourselves somewhere in this book’ Emily Chappell’One of the best cycling books of all time’ BookAuthorityA joyful dose of inspiration that every cyclist, from rookie to randonneur, can take something valuable from’ Road.ccIf your bike has become your biggest escape of late, Back in the Frame from award-winning blogger, Lady Velo, is the book for youJools Walker rediscovered cycling aged 28 after a decade-long absence from the saddle. When she started blogging about her cycle adventures under the alias Lady Velo, a whole world was opened up to her. But it’s hard to find space in an industry not traditionally open to women – especially women of colour.Shortly after getting back on two wheels, Jools was diagnosed with depression and then, in her early thirties, hit by a mini-stroke. Yet, through all of these punctures, one constant remained: Jools’ love of cycling.Funny, moving and motivational, this book tells the story of how Jools overcame these challenges, stepped outside her comfort zone and learned to cycle her own path. Along the way she shares a wealth of inspirational stories and tips from other female trailblazers, and shows how cycling can and should be a space for everyone.A celebration of cycling, Back in the Frame will motivate you to get back on your bike and enjoy the ride, no matter what life throws at you.
