After a brilliant week of press excitement, with Jools appearing in both the Telegraph and The Observer, some time spent as top of the Amazon ‘Cycling and Travel’ chart and the top of the Cycling wish list, Jools Walker’s debut memoir is being published today by Little, Brown!
A memoir of bikes, blogs and riding through depression from award-winning blogger, Lady Vélo.
Jools Walker re-discovered cycling aged twenty-eight after a ten-year absence from the saddle. When she started blogging about her cycle adventures under the alias Lady Vélo, 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.
In Back in the Frame Jools talks to the other female trailblazers who are disrupting the cycling narrative as well as telling the story of how she overcame her health problems, learned how to cycle her own path and even found a love of Lycra shorts along the way.
