Ed has written a new book called The Beacon Bike. It tells the incredible story of his 3,500-mile bicycle ride to explore the lighthouses around the coast of England and Wales, proving that a diagnosis of MS doesn’t mean giving up on a lifelong dream. Ed’s bike ride took him to 327 lighthouses over 100 days.

Emily Straight, who is the regular co-host of the Lighthouse Lowdown podcast, co-hosts this episode.
