Taiwanese Cyclists Pass Through Portland As Blogger Cheers

The peloton had about 50 people and they covered around 100 km a day -- for mostly retired folk I thought this hardcore.
Yesterday I came across a group of Taiwanese cyclists who were biking from Vancouver BC to San Francisco. They had stopped in Pioneer Square to do a media event and take some pictures with a bronze of a man holding an umbrella.

I lived five years in Taiwan and felt I owed a debt of gratitude for the generosity of various people. I didn't have time to give them financial advice or pragmatic technical pointers about cycling fashion.

But I did give them a rousing cheer of "Jia you, jia you!"(加油,加油) -- which literally means "ad oil"  or "bike your buns off!"
