Jo set off on her travels to complete her challenge. Sadly after several days into the cycle Jo came off her bike while travelling down a mountain.
She was knocked unconscious and suffered a brain bleed. Jo ended up in Intensive care for several days. For this to happen in the UK is traumatic enough but; caught between the borders of Chile and Argentina proved very problematic. With only a hose for a shower in the hospital was also an experience Jo could have done without.
We are very happy to say that, after her nightmare ordeal, Jo is at home making a slow recovery from her extensive bruising and head injury. The guides and her husband Bob remained with her throughout the terrible experience.
We wish Jo a speedy recovery and thank you to all of the people who have sponsored Jo, both before the challenge and after her challenging experience. Well done for such a fantastic effort Jo you are amazing.
