SKuNK, a fixie team attend underground cycling event/races mostly, also earn some reps from the races, yet never been a part of any certificate races before until today. Although the result was underwhelming; some of our best rider get involve with the accident during the race, and did not complete the entire race. We learn a lot from this race that there is still many thing need to be improved physically and mentally, and there is one thing for sure that we will come back strong.
We ride our single speed bikes as high into the mountains as possible. With each pedal stroke, we leave our problems behind as we are greeted with the most excruciating pain, a wanting to give up. Once we reach the top, calmness sinks in and the mind and heart is set at peace. It’s not until the descent that we realize what we have lost as we rapidly head back into reality.
This video is dedicated to my friend Xiao Yu who recently passed away in a horrific accident (non-bike related). He was too young and had not even lived life yet. He was a bike messenger with the company Prodorapid before moving on to Skunk Messenger. He had a love for riding bikes and was one of the first people in Taiwan to push me as a rider. We will miss you. Rest in peace.

2014 was one of the best years of riding in my life. This is a short video of some of the rides I went on last year. I got to meet so many interesting cyclists and see some spectacular views. I can’t wait for what adventure lie ahead in 2015.
Happy New Year!!
