Episode 11 of TDA Talks with Jen Reid
“As the medic the rewarding thing for me is watching the riders achieving things that they didn’t think they could do and really overcoming injuries and mental challenges.”
In episode 11 of TDA Talks we chat with Jen Reid. After a day of work at her hospital in the Scottish borders, she kindly recalled some favourite memories, and – maybe more importantly – she provided some tips for riders on how to prepare for a long cycling tour, and what sort of common ailments to expect on a tour such as the Tour d’Afrique. If you aspire to be an expedition medic someday, she also shared some really valuable insights on that subject.
