I'm a 77-year old retired test pilot/engineer. I took up cycling when arthritis and a double hip replacement ended my running career. Ursula (my wife) and I did our first serious cycling trip with TDA in Africa in 2008. We liked it so much that 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 are looking forward riding with both old and new friends when we meet in Seoul for JTE 2022 and again in Saigon for the ride to Shangri-La in 2023, hoping earnestly that travel restrictions will allow them to happen.
