It's 2020. Chix?!? Seriously.

Awesome women doing amazing things with bikes.

See, I fixed that for you.

Interesting, informative and picturesque video, though I'm not personally a fan of the extended-selfie shots which are popular nowadays. I want to see the place, not the tourists!

I've heard good things about cycling in Taiwan from other sources too. And I once met some tralier-towing Taiwanese tourists on the Bristol-Bath path; I got talking to them because I didn't recognize their flag. It's quite a good flag as well as being bizarrely similar to the flag of Samoa.

Somewhere I might still have the WWOOFing catalogue I picked up in New Zealand many many years ago. So many years ago that it stood for Willing Workers On Organic Farms back then. I don't think I ever actually did any WWOOFing though. Mildly surprised to find it's still going.

Turns out RAD is their initials, Ryan and Darin, which is a lot better than just calling yourself "rad". Disappointing they haven't pursued the German pun potential. Das Rad ist rad mit RADBikeAdventure.

Oh, I had assumed it was about the German for bike, used slightly weirdly. Interesting.

I'd assumed it was just the kind of rad that gets followed by "dude!" or similar. Although, despite their exclamations and superlatives, they don't look quite the types to use "rad!". I didn't gather which one is Ryan and which is Darin – both names I'd think of as male, but then names do change in their application. (In fact I was trying to remember someone's name this morning and it was Ryan – a male one.)

In one of their videos one of them observes that they both have guy's names! They're such lovely people. They almost restore my faith in humanity.
