AST Cycling Club would like to host a Tour de Taiwan, which is cycling around Taiwan. The trip will be 12 days long and the event serves some major purpose. First, the event will introduce the participants into the root of Taiwan- Taiwanese culture. For instance, during the ride, the tour will incorporate some traditional snacks but not like ordinary lunch boxes; aboriginal tribes will be visited when we are on the eastern coast of Taiwan; furthermore, the natural beauty of Taiwan will be shown to the participants. Second, Taiwan, an island that is packed with only 23 million people, has one of the largest cycling industry in the world; therefore, this event has scheduled some tours to multiple bicycling factories and museums, including 3 largest bicycle factories in Taiwan: Giant, Merida, and HODAKA. Also, the bicycle museum introduces us the evolution of bicycles. The participants can see how the frame of the bicycle change through time with the improvement of material technology and better knowing about aerodynamics. In conclusion, with these wonderful events implemented in this tour, the fee for each participant will skyrocket, which thereby decrease the willingness for them to join; thus the AST Cycling Club would like to use your help to make this tour acceptable for each student. The amount that each student only have to pay is 25000 NTD, and that covers hotel, insurance, and partial food payments for the whole 12 days. The due date for sign up is on May 21, Tuesday. For additional information please contact Yuan Yuan and Nordy.
