I'm a 75-year old semi-retired test pilot, still flying jets and instructing part-time at International Test Pilots School. I took up cycling when arthritis and a double hip replacement ended to 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 - great way to see places we've not been before, always a good group of fellow riders, always well supported. To fellow participants in Journey to the East, we look forward to meeting you and to exploring what is new territory for us, and we're forward to again riding with old friends from previous TDA trips.
