The Franglais Riderís Journal
Jan. He was traveling just ahead of me and I never met him but I liked reading his blog as it seemed to sum up how I felt about the places I had been to if I was more eloquent.
Oisin. Mad Irish dude who met me when I picked up my bike and rode with me around Anchorage. Reading his blog later scared and excited me. When I used to message him on how it was going he would say, ups and downs. Which is exactly what it is.
Alexander. Dutch bloke who emailed me to ask if I knew about camping in a park of butterflies in Mexico and then pulled into a petrol station in Colombia six months later just in time to help me fix my bike.

Mike: I met Mike at one of the HU meet ups and before he went on his own coastal long distance bike ride he wrote me several encouraging emails. Including the fact that before he biked through South America he had only just gotten his bike license and when someone asked him if he knew how to change the oil he replied, into what?
