Rebecca Lowe is a freelance journalist from London who specialises in human rights and the Middle East. In 2015-16, she cycled 11,000km solo from London to Tehran. Her first book, The Slow Road to Tehran, documenting her year-long journey, paints a living portrait of the Middle East through its people, its politics and its historic relationship with the West, and challenges much of the perceived wisdom about this region of the world. It was published in Spring 2022 by September Books in the UK and MVG in Germany.
