Tour de Taiwan 2015 單車環臺 2015

臺灣單車環島這個念頭是在 2014 年中開始在心𥚃湧現,亦是我愛上公路車之後的一個夢想。

Things To Do In My Next Visit to Taiwan 下次到台灣應該做甚麼?

自今年二月初暫停外國人士入境,台灣政府會於明天(6月29日)開始放寬符合特定條件的人士入台,此階段主要是基於商務及依親的需要,相信旅遊入境稍後亦會恢復。 上次到台灣是今年一月中,轉眼間又差不多半年了,心裏有點癢,希望盡快可以再回去探朋友及遊灠。在家數月,閒來上網也留意到很多台灣相關的資訊,先來個整理,為稍後再到台灣作好準備。

Downgrade 降級

家中的單車訓練台已設置兩年多,主角之一是帶領我踏入公路單車的 Giant TCR SLR1 及一對高性能 Fulcrum Racing Zero 輪組。把這對 Racing Zero 屈就在訓練台上,總是覺得有點可惜。 最近終於決定為 SLR1 來過 "降級"。 I have my indoor bike training platform for more than two years. The focus of the setup is the Giant TCR SLR1 that led me to the world of road cycling, and the set of high performance Fulcrum Racing Zero wheel-system. Frankly speaking, there should be much better use of the Racing Zero rather than leaving it as part of the indoor training setup. Recently, I have made up my mind to "Downgrade" my SLR1.

BKOOL – A Subscription Based Virtual Cycling Platform

While social distancing is the way to go to minimise the spreading of COVID-19 among people, most of our daily activities are seriously affected. In particular, we have already stopped group riding for the past few weeks. Instead of going outdoor, virtual cycling becomes my next best thing to do.

Status Update • Flash Visit to Taipei 狀態更新 • 快閃台北

It's been quite a long time since I published my last blog post, 318 days to be exact. 2019 has been a busy and wonderful year to me where I have the chance to explore and learn so many things that I have never dreamt before. I am so lucky to have fully recovered, much ...

Another Virtual Cycling Beta – Road Grand Tours (RGT)

Back in early 2018 when I registered for the VirtuGO Beta testing, I had also requested for participation in another virtual cycling platform testing - The Road Grand Tours (RGT) Closed Beta programme.

微笑單車 YouBike

微笑單車的初邂逅 First Encounter of YouBike

去過台北好幾次,但從來也未騎過微笑單車(YouBike)。主要原因是我沒有悠遊卡和台灣當地的電話號碼,無法作會員登記。另一方面,基於保安理由,我又不想使用信用卡作單次租車。 You may be surprised that I have not ridden any YouBike before despite that I have been to Taipei a number of times. The main reason is that I don't have Easycard nor local phone number. For security reason, I also don't want to use my credit card for one-time bike rental as well.

Running Wahoo ELEMNT in Route / Sim Mode

Fixing the Wahoo ELEMNT Route Mode Support?

Early this year, I have kick-started cycle training with my newly installed CycleOps Magnus smart trainer. One of the simplest and cost-effective setups that I had discussed was using the built-in Planned Workout feature of my Wahoo ELEMNT bike computer. At that time, I had observed that the "Route" mode of trainer control provided by the Wahoo ELEMNT was not functioning. The trainer resistance did not reflect the actual elevation profile of the loaded route. The case was reported to Wahoo and I finally received their reply in mid-July on fixing the error. Sounded great !

Bike Shops Tour in Osaka

Doing window shopping is one of my favourite activities when having overseas visits. In my latest Osaka / Biwako tour in end August, I had included optional visit to some of the bike shops in my plan. Right before the day I returned to Hong Kong, I have spared some time to visit these shops.
