My wife Mary and I drive today to Vancouver with my bicycle. to begin my long bicycle trip of approximately 6,100km from Vancouver to Halifax. I am torn between many diverse feeling such as: I can't wait to get on the road; have I bitten off more than I can chew? Am I being naive or perhaps downright stupid to even think of taking on something of this magnitude at my age? However I read an article recently that was based on the premise that sixty is now the new forty.
I said yes! yes! yes! This was exactly what I wanted to hear, because this is the way I feel. Age is only a number and I am 62 years young not old. I feel like a young thoroughbred ready to burst forth from the starting gates and get the job done. By getting the job done I also want to help put some money into the Child haven coffers so that they can continue their award winning work with the needy in India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Tibet.Sean Collins
