New Year Riding
185 Warehouse, glides by a big tree and temple in Taiwan. Everyone pays attention to the temple worship, but no one talks about the Big Trees. Yet Big Tree worship is ubiquitous in Taiwan. I've never been able to find a serious scholarly article on its origins and functions. Anyone out there got one?
Drew and Simon and I met up for Route 21 south from Dongshih to Guosing, one of the best easily accessible rides in central Taiwan, a workout involving two climbs of 400 meters and then a wonderful twisting downhill into Guosing for lunch. Drew's post on this ride is here.
My new Canon Powershot S95 performed as expected. Most of the photos above were taken while moving. I am deliriously happy with the Powershot's fun functions, its clean shots, and ease of use.
Hope to see you on a road soon!
