Adventurer – Author – Speaker
Ishbel has cycled solo across 20 countries, trekked 100 miles of Patagonia unsupported … pedalled 5000 metres high … wild camped in minus 20 degrees celsius …. pedalled the Pyrenees, Alps and Andes, wild camped through the Pantanal Jungle …. followed Che Guevara’s final footsteps across Bolivia …. cycled the largest salt plain in the world …. crossed a country with no money … raced internationally as a velodrome sprinter and road raced around UK. That’s the easy stuff.
Ishbel began adult life as a run away from foster care, spending years homeless and adrift, struggling with her mental health which was damaged from abandonment and trauma. Ishbel came to a cross roads in her life at age 21. What was the point of living, when everyday she wanted to die? She knew she either had to end it there or commit herself to living. Ishbel chose life. The rest is history.
Ishbel is an author, writer and public speaker, using stories of adventure to inspire and empower.
Passionate about bridging the gap between incredible adversity and inspiring achievement, Ishbel tackles stigma and encourages social change to help the most disadvantaged of society.
