About this deal

She’d been in my life for only four months, but during that time we had battled through snowstorms, crossed mountain ranges, skirted coastlines and spent every evening and weekend together, testing each other to the maximum as we trained and prepared for the Round the World project.

All of this really makes you warm to her character; exceptionally tough on so many levels but a hundred per cent compassionate and human inside.

She discusses feeling 'overcome with self-doubt' and being completely out of her depth (triggered by an issue with route uploading). In 2018, amateur cyclist Jenny Graham left family and friends behind in Scotland to become the fastest woman to cycle around the world. a reminder of what a positive mindset, daily intentions, the kindness of strangers and the love of friends enables even when very far away. While any avid cyclist or tourer will relate to many of Jenny's quotes, for example, 'Acceptance is the greatest mindset of all on the road.

When Jenny Graham decided to attempt to become the fastest woman to circumnavigate the world on a bicycle (with allowances for flights over oceans), she was both excited and nervous.Coffee First, Then the World is her account of a record-breaking ride, and how one woman and a humble bike conquered the world. Jenny broke the record, but it was what she discovered about herself and the world around her that truly changed her. It launches next week and Jenny is also doing a book tour, starting on 12th April, with talks (and rides) happening at various locations across the UK. The inevitable punctures, mechanical failures, the weather, the uncertainty of where and when you will sleep, eat, rest, recover. As independent experts we are able to offer a range of impartial advice, guides, reviews, inspiration and routes to help you experience the joy of cycling.
