Joanne Poon loves the thrill and adventure of cross-country cycling. The 62-year-old retiree is currently touring across Vietnam with her husband Yeoh Keong Kok and a group of mostly senior cyclists. Since she started cross-country cycling eight years ago, Poon has cycled through Thailand, Laos, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and Kunming (in China).

She’s even ventured as far as France and has plans of cycling through many more countries in the coming years.
