I did have a set of photos of my bike riding in Taiwan. Most other sets died. This report is photo intensive and I had to write and organised that in my Livejournal. I hope you all will enjoy it and have an understanding of the beautiful roads of Taiwan.
I am happy you all enjoyed with me those wonderful times cycling down from Wuling Nong Chang.
Wuling NongChang did not sound nice. For the first few months when I was in Taiwan in early 1990, I did not even try to go to Wuling Nong Chang as I wondered with that kind of name of a farm, what the hell would that kind of place be?
I was wrong as usual. Very very wrong! That was one of the very beautiful places of Taiwan.
You know I left my Tinkerbell there in Taiwan. I had to leave Taiwan in the midst of bird flu in 2004. No countries around the world would allow other birds to be imported. I trained my friend there for a year , and gave Tinkerbell into his care. Almost every year, I would go back to Taiwan to see Tinkerbell , and my other friends.
And last year I did that. I was building my stamina up for that as that included a climb on a mountain , Sueh Shan (Snow Mountain) that was next to Wuling Nong Chang. I rode bike to build up my stamina.
Instead of worrying of my cracked ribs, I was frantic I had to abort my planned Taiwan trip and miss that mountain climbing and miss seeing Tinkerbell
But I did go on that trip.
And that include a lot of nice photos of WuLing Nong Chang that you might enjoy. And see a couple of photos when I was in Taiwan in 1991, when I could have taken in a Tour De France. I was really super fit then.
