In this excerpt from "Lone Rider: The First British Woman to Motorcycle Around the World" Elspeth Beard takes an epic wipe out in rural India and discovers the power of the human community
Elspeth Beard is author of "Lone Rider: The First British Woman to Motorcycle Around the World." She's a lifelong motorcycle globe-rider, and award-winning architect in Britain, where she specializes in creating unusual buildings and reinventing old ones like churches and water towers. She still rides, and is hoping her book reaches women in particular, who might see the value of (their own version of) hopping on a bike and speeding off into the blue yonder. You can buy her book on Amazon.
