Ed Peppitt with his bicycle in front of a lighthouse

Edward Peppitt is the southeast England representative for the Association of Lighthouse Keepers, or ALK, and he produces and hosts a podcast called "Keeping Watch." He’s also a fundraising ambassador for Shift MS, a charity aimed at keeping multiple sclerosis sufferers as active as possible.

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.
