Thanks to generous sponsorship by Belstaff, this after-hours event proved to be one of our best #ridereportseries presentations to date.
Click through above to watch the archived Facebook LiveStream video of her presentation, and click below that to buy a limited-edition autographed (and hand-stamped) copy of Elspeth’s fantastic memoir, “Lone Rider”—while supplies last!
Elspeth holds the distinction of being the first British woman to ride around the world on a motorcycle, but she’s far from another spotlight-seeking record breaker.
In fact, after her massive round-the-world adventure—completed sans cell phone or GPS, mind you—Elspeth returned home quietly, and put all her photos, journals and other evidence of her trip away in a box. And for the most part, that’s where those memories stayed for the better part of three decades, as Elspeth pursued a successful career in England as an award-winning architect.
It wasn’t until a few years back that Elspeth’s story was discovered and given some much-deserving spotlight in motorcycle publications. She’s since written a book about her trip, which will be on hand to purchase and have signed at the event.
