Bikepacking, Taiwan

Formosa 900

A challenge for some cyclists, a discovery adventure for us, the Formosa 900 was a good start to our holiday.

It’s my first time travelling to a country where I do not understand a word anyone says. The language is different, but also is the culture.

People are nice, so very nice! They are so eager to help, translate, explain,..

The food isn’t your typical Chinese food, there is rice and tofu, but so much more. Every region has it’s specialty and we ate the local food everywhere we went. Sweeter soy sauce in a region, nicer rice in another, local fish, local fruits,..

Most meals where shared and there was always too much food. Even if we road 900km, no one lost weight.

The organization was perfect, they made easy for us to just ride our bikes, no one got lost. There may have been a few crashes, but nothing major and it could have been a lot worse, considering the different skill levels.

I met great people, awesome humans! It is the perfect setting for starting new friendships.

Now it’s time to get lost and eat food from 7eleven!
