What is it about birthdays?
Why is it that every time one reaches a birthday with a zero at the end, one reviews one's life and makes seriously new resolutions? Del seems to have invited a challenge at every decade - too many to mention here (perhaps later!) On his 70th (in October 2010), cycling the length of New Zealand was in his sights. Receiving no enthusiasm from me didn't curtail his urge. He located a cargo trailer specially designed to be hitched to a bike, accumulated the necessary camping gear, biking accessories etc and was ready to go. All he needed was some cycling training to build up strength, fitness and, most importantly, knowledge of how to take a bike to bits and put it back together again! Well, already he's had bountiful experience of the latter!
