Our Tours in Taiwan
Formosa - Cycling The Beautiful Island
Dates: January 1970
Many years ago whilst cycling alone across China I wondered what China would have been like had the civil war gone the other way and communism had never taken over. I rode and pondered, and then I realised - Taiwan - it is after all to where the Kuomintang fled when they felt they may be less than popular in China.
It took me some time to eventually get to the Beautiful Island - as Taiwan's previous name Formosa translates from Portuguese to English- and once there I was bamboozled as to why Taiwan is not the world’s cycling mecca. If I were to sum it up in a word, I would simply say, wonderful.
