My riding partner, the redoubtable Jennilea Hortop, giving the
"thumbs up" signal, even though she is clearly lost and hundreds
of miles from ice cream.
Jen and I biked together almost every day from the start of the
Tour up until the time I left in Malawi, and we also spent a lot
of our non-riding time together, so it's a wonder that she didn't
crush my head with a large rock after the first week. Jen is
one of the most remarkable people I've met, a lovely person who is
an absolute force of nature. On more than one occasion Jen
dragged my sorry, whiny ass up one mountain or another. Of
course, that meant that she'd have to go back and drag the rest of
me up later.
