25 KM Pre-Thunderstorm Ride

Thunderstorm and rail

I’ve been wanting to go out on a bike ride for the last few days, but the late afternoon rains always got the better of me. I got an earlier start today, so I had a few hours to kill before my next teaching gig. I took the opportunity to head out on the bike.

The cycling paths were completely deserted at around 2PM. It was a really nice time to go out. There was a fair bit of wind, and it seemed like when I hit Jonghe, it had already rained. Luckily, the wind was blowing in my favor and I managed to complete my ride without getting wet. I did get a bit dirty, but it was all in good fun.

I completed the ride in 41:38. I’m still getting used to all of the construction that they’ve completed on the cycling paths. That’s an average speed of 36.14 kph. Not bad, but at the top of my form last year, I was doing about 34 minutes for the same ride.

I guess that the annoying part was that I had to teach afterward. I was tired, hungry, and got a pulsating headache from the kids. Luckily, it was over quickly.

    1. Allo! Non, je n’ai pas encore reçu le prototype Velocite de carbone. Il arrive la semaine prochaine. Je me déplace avec un scooter. Utiliser un vélo serait trop dangereux à cause du traffic mental qui existe à Taipei.

      C’est pas vraiment dévelopé en terme de pistes cyclables. Il y a des pistes cyclables pour s’entrainer le long de la rivière, mais c’est pas mal tout. Il n’en a pas en ville ou le long des artères principales.
