     在新的一天,我們又繼續踏上了單車環臺的旅程。今天的旅程相較於第一天北宜的起起伏伏,對於我們肌耐力和爬坡的水準的要求並不大;相反的,今天最主要的考驗是看我們是否有足夠的耐力能夠完成較長的路程。今天,我們完成了從我們在花蓮的酒店到台中的郊區,長達96公里的路程,這也是我們第一次在一天內挑戰如此長的距離。慶幸的是,幸運女神對我們展開了微笑並賜予了我們舒適的天氣,天氣不是很熱,因此我們不至於在烈日炎炎下,揮汗如雨;同時,天氣也不是很冷,所以我們也並沒有在96公里的路途上瑟瑟發抖。今天的地形包含了平路,輕微的上坡,以及上橋和下橋。也因為這樣的路途在體力上沒有很大的挑戰,反而讓我們面臨了另一個危機:瞌睡。我們都需要在互相加油打氣下保持著清醒。除此之外,路上的坑窪、碎石和施工工程也不好應付。只要鬆懈一下,我們隨時都有可能因為騎過路上的障礙而摔下車。排除了我們所面對的困難之外,今天最讓人印象深刻的莫過於風景了。

      在今天的路途上,我們看到了連綿起伏的山脈以及鄉間一望無際的綠野。而這優美的景色也是使我們不會輕易發呆或打瞌睡的動力。最後值得慶幸的是,我們班的隊友們沒有因為路途的枯燥而放鬆警惕,大家都認真的騎完了路程。除了一位同學稍有擦傷之外,大家都平安的抵達了台東。在未來的幾天,我們將還有更多的挑戰要面對,希望我們所有人可以一起面對,平安的克服所有困難。

    Another day, another few dozen kilometers to ride on our bikes. Today’s segment wasn’t as much of test of our muscle strength or ability to hill climb without falling over or crashing into other people, but a test of whether or not our endurance could hold over long distances. We had to ride a total of 96 kilometers – the longest distance we rode in one day so far – from our hotel at Hualien to the outskirts of Taitung.

    Thankfully, Lady Luck smiled upon us today and gave us good weather; it was not too hot, which would make us half-dead men with sweat gushing out of our pores, nor too cold, which would make us shiver for all of the 96 kilometers from the chill in the air. Last year, our seniors had to go through unbearable heat for the entire journey.

    Today’s terrain was a mix of flat roads, slight inclines, and going up and down bridges. It was quite literally going from this sequence: flat ground, climb, descend, and repeat. This was the perfect combination for putting people to sleep. The roads, littered with potholes, gravel, and construction work, were not kind to us either. Let go of your attention for one moment, and you’ll probably end up flat on the pavement with your bike on top. 

    However, for all the woes we faced today, one thing stood out as excellent: the view. Today we could see the towering mountains mixed with the endless green fields of the Taiwanese countryside. It was truly a breathtaking sight to behold, being one of the few things keeping us from falling asleep and ramming into the person in front.

    By the end of the day, everyone got to the hotel in one piece. Well, most of us; one person smashed themselves right onto the pavement, but he eventually ended up fine and was good to go for biking as everyone else. There’s still a few hundred kilometers in the next few days to look forward (or dread for). Here’s hope that everyone can make it.
