國際中心/綜合報導

英國單車旅遊部落客艾略特(Juliet Elliott)去年11月來台單車環島9天,沿經台中大甲、彰化鹿港、高雄、屏東車城、花連等地,不但狂讚西岸自行車道與東岸的無敵景色,也大啖在地美食。如今,她與丈夫戴夫(Dave)已在幾個月前領養一名女孩,過著為人母親的生活,同時兼顧她的單車人生。

中央社報導,艾略特當時每天騎約100公里的路程。她提到,高雄設置的自行車到相當完善,就算車流量大,單車騎士也不用與機車爭道,且在車城到花東的山區路線景色優美,就算雨天也能大飽眼福。期間,艾略特也不忘在各景點拍照留念,造訪多間寺廟以及冰淇淋工廠,體驗台灣文化與觀光。

她認為,台灣在單車界享有極高的知名度,不單因為是捷安特的關係,許多全球知名品牌也是台灣製造。此外,2015年通車的環島1號線早已被許多單車客列入必訪口袋名單,「來台灣騎車旅遊」未來很有可能成為趨勢。

打開艾略特的IG,可見她對單車運動的熱愛,除了台灣之外,她也走遍西班牙、比利時、德國、義大利等國。

值得一提的是,今年對她而言,應該算是特別的一年,因為家裡多了一位可愛的小女孩。她上周在IG提到,因為她與丈夫過去幾年多次嘗試人工受孕,但最終都以失敗收場,2人隨後轉向申請成為領養人,經過社會工作者評估,終於把女兒帶回家,「如果你正努力達成某個目標,希望我的故事能激勵大家繼續走下去、不要中途放棄。盡量試著去做那些可以『做自己』的事情,對我來說,毫無疑問就是騎單車!」

A few people have noticed that my husband @dave_noakes started posting photos of a child this year. Last week someone asked me on my story whether I had any kids. Then my friend @kymnonstop said someone had asked her the same thing (about me).. • So here goes...Earlier this year, Dave and I adopted a little girl. She is incredible and I feel like the luckiest person alive! I wasn’t sure whether to post anything here but after a lot of reflection, I thought hey, being adopted means you were wanted more than anything. It doesn’t need to be hidden.. • Getting to this point has taken so long and been so hard. I’ve not shared the journey because it was so difficult, personal, scary and exhausting. Over the last couple of years I competed in @redhookcrit in between rounds of IVF. The cycling helped keep me sane, when I was allowed to ride, that is. One London based doctor banned me from riding for the entire cycle and that was awful! • When that didn’t work, We undertook incredibly intense training as prospective adopters, had our entire lives and past scrutinised, were assessed, grilled and assessed again. We filled in form after form. A social worker interviewed us for two hours each week for ten weeks. We waited and waited. We fought and grew sadder and more frustrated. But then..... our daughter arrived!!! • If you’re doing through something tough yourself, I hope this story can inspire you to keep going and to never give up hope. Try and carry on doing what makes you YOU as much as you can. For me, that was cycling!
