Are you ready for a wild ride? Ishbel Holmes used to be a track cyclist, but she packed it all in to cycle the world. Lee Craigie told us she was in the UK and we couldn't let her leave until we'd interviewed her. Ishbel champions that ANYONE can ride a bike and explore the world. If that doesn’t move you, she also rescues injured animals by bike. She’s published a book about her life: Me, My bike and street dog named Lucy - and watch out, there will be a feature film (!) about her adventures real soon. ~ Guest ~ Ishbel Holmes Buy Ishbel’s books: Please note Ishbel mentions suicide at 32:34 ~ Topics ~ Lee Craigie Adventure Syndicate Warm Showers Are you selling GHDs??
