What Goes Around: A London Cycle Courier’s Story Emily Chappell


Emily Chappell was never meant to be a cycle courier. She planned to earn her living using her mind rather than her legs. She thought it’d be a useful stopgap while searching for a ‘real’ job. Several years on, she’s still pedalling. As she flies through the streets of London, dancing with the traffic, Chappell records the pain and pleasure – both mental and physical – of life on wheels: the hurtling, dangerous missions; the ebb and flow of seasonal work; the moments of fear and freedom, anger and exhaustion; the camaraderie of the courier tribe and its idiosyncratic characters.
