A Mile With… Dedan, The Athlete

Dedan Ireri is a bike messenger in Nairobi. He says that he might in fact be Nairobi’s only messenger on a bicycle. But Dedan Ireri is also an athlete with big ambitions in cycling. I first met him in Northern Kenya where he joined the Tour d’Afrique for some off road riding. I was quite amazed by his cycling skills and he passed me more than once on the corrugated roads and lava rock fields between Moyale and Marsabit.
