I'm a 76-year old mostly-retired engineer and test pilot. I took up cycling when arthritis and a double hip replacement ended my running career. Korea-Japan will be our ninth TDA trip - we (Ursula and I) did Africa in 2008 and we keep coming back for more, most recently the inaugural Trans-Himalaya. Its our way of going where we've not been before with a good group of fellow riders and always well supported by TDA. We look forward riding with both old and new friends when we meet in Seoul after the one-year COVID delay... and we're hoping earnestly that that 2021 will be a GO.
