5 times zones down and Jenny Graham is powering across Russia. But it’s not all been plain sailing this week… with 8 PUNCTURES!! and a fierce headwind taking there toll Jens slipped behind schedule but if you think that’s going to stop her, then you really don’t know our Jen!
After a good kip in an empty drainage pipe she’s back on the power and chasing down those miles, little by little clawing back the time. Her new grasp on the Russian language (the ability to spot a Beetroot and Rice Salad on a menu…) is keeping her fuelled up, but it’s going to be tight to make the first flight on schedule in Beijing. So keep your fingers crossed and your support coming in as Jen cross the 4,000-mile barrier!
