In 1982 a young British woman named Elspeth Beard set out to ride her 600cc BMW clear around the world. Three years and 35,000 miles later, changed forever, she rolled back into London victorious—albeit with little fanfare.

Next Monday, November 5, Elspeth is coming to Union Garage to share her story. Thanks to generous sponsorship by Belstaff, the after-hours event (snacks and refreshments included as per usual) is absolutely free. But space is limited, so please RSVP if you can make it as this one will surely sell out.

We are thrilled resurrect our Ride Report speaker series with a November 5 presentation by Elspeth, who 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. And that make us love her story all that much more.

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 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.
