D on the way to Fengguizui. On weekends, the road there is overcrowded with cyclists decked out like some Lance Armstrong, some with bikes costing NT$100,000 – NT$150,000.

Bad luck

D and the members or her group in the tour around Taiwan

No biking at all this last week. Last Monday, on the morning of the third day of D’s long awaited nine day tour of the island, a car ran a red light down in Huwei and D had to do an emergency […]
