end of day 4 ai yoo :0

made it throught the 4th day. how the terrain changes when you get north of taichung. mountains and tunnels as far as the eye can see. i am really glad i had 3 days to warm up for this leg of the journey. it definately was brutal. i am in shijuan now. a town in taipei county. i alomst as far north as i will go but only 2/3 of the way through my trip as i still have to head north around the top and back down the east side of the island and back up the west coast to kaohsiung. i am getting the hang of this finding my rythym thing. really makes such a big difference. getting to know the bike as well. the gears. all 29 of them and how they can make taking a hill so much easier once you get to know them. i have a some pictures that will be posted soon. i really do suck at stopping to take pictures. hard to bring myself out of the moments so i am able to capture them. i will try to take more :) looking forward to the east coast. ocean side ride. :)

hey john..sounds like you are doing well. I am assuming that by saying you are 2/3 of the way through the trip you mean 1/3 of way through the trip.
looking forward to seeing the pics.
thinking of you!
