I am so happy to read about the place where I grew up. My dad was in the Air Force. I was born in 新竹 and we moved to 岡山 when I was just two. I spent a good part of my youth there in both 健鷹村 and 致遠村until we moved to Taipei when I was 15. That was 40 years ago. There are only a few things you mentioned here I have some slight memory but I am all the same thrilled to see.
One thing I like to correct and one thing to add.
尹清楓 is not from 健鷹村 but from 致遠村. Their house was directly behind ours and he has a younger brother same age as I. I also played with 侯德健 in those days.
Also, There was another famous singer 包美聖 from 致遠村 but she got married and retired from music early.
Thanks again for the memory.

Biking has changed. Nowadays, we talk about Shimano vs. Campy vs. SRAM, or we talk about carbon vs. aluminum vs. steel vs. titanium. We put a lot more focus on the fashion and the speed aspects of biking as if we are trying to prove something. We forgot that a bicycle is also such an artistic and elegant way of moving about, taking us farther and showing us more than what our pair of feet can do.
