People who inspire us: Rachel Henry

Rachel Henry (right) loves her Jo Routens bike. When Natsuko and I visited them for a story about her husband Raymond, the historian of French cyclotouring and long-time Bicycle Quarterly contributor, the two accompanied us out of town on the spur of a moment.

Rachel prefers contemplative cyclotouring, but she’s a competitive gardener: She and Raymond each have their own vegetable gardens, and Rachel’s tends to grow better! She also serves on the city council of their home town in Provence. And yes, that’s Mont Ventoux in the background. Can’t wait to see them again!

The photo above appeared in our story about French bicycle collectors in Bicycle Quarterly 65.
