Memoir, intercontinental cycling adventure, music guide, CADENCE is the debut book by ABC Classic FM’s Emma Ayres.

In her provocative, intelligent, surprising and funny memoir Cadence, Emma cycles her way from England to Hong Kong with a violin she calls Aurelia strapped to her back. But it is also a journey through the keys, and the music that inspired, shaped and provided refuge for Emma throughout her travels with music.

About the Author

Emma Ayres is the darling of ABC Classic FM Breakfast. This classically trained musician was for many years a violinist with the Hong Kong Philharmonic. A seminal moment came when Emma was cycling from Shropshire in England to Hong Kong for charity. The nine-month solo trip allowed for a lot of thinking-time and led Emma to decide two things: learn the cello, and try her hand at radio. She moved to Australia and joined Classic FM in 2004. She also teaches cello.
