Lone Rider tells the story of the first round-the-world mo­tor­cy­cle jour­ney by a Bri­tish woman, El­speth Beard.

Set­ting off in 1982, El­speth was just 23. Not your typ­i­cal biker or your typ­i­cal solo round-the-world trav­eller. But she per­sisted with her dream through the highs and lows. Her jour­ney on the 1974 BMW R60/6 lasted al­most two and a half years, and en route she ex­pe­ri­enced hos­pi­tal­ity and kind­ness, crashes and de­spair – but, re­fresh­ingly, there was not a mo­bile phone or an in­ter­net café in sight.
