Taiwan’s sensation and multi talented guy Jacky Chen is a keen traveler with a fondness for riding bicycles. Jacky Chen, an electronic engineer by line of work, left his job to fulfill his travelling dream.

The 40-year-old has currently grabbed a lot of eyeballs for his bicycle riding escapade, which has taken him to 64 nations in a period of seven years.

Chen, after giving up his job as an engineer, ventured into a bicycle trip crosswise the globe. He fruitfully passed through the Americas, Europe and regions of the Middle East on his bicycle.

The 40-year old Chen has been to 64 nations, covering over 54,000 kilometers in a period of seven years. He currently expects to trip 100 more and travel more than 1,00,000 kilometers during the coming three years.

The ex engineer told the news group that he prefers not to do much study prior to his trips as he wishes to build up his own early impressions. One of his current bicycle quests was in Jerusalem where he saw the well-known Mount of Olives.

“This city surprised me. It is a big city but it is historical,” Chen told media people.

When questioned about the problems he confronted on the path, Chen answered travelling during snowy climate in the European and American zone was mainly harsh.

However Chen perked himself well to cope with the unkind weather forms. But, he got frightened when cars and trucks came too near to him on the lanes.

His trip started in the US state of Alaska and at the moment, he is headed in the direction of Jordan. In the coming months, he is planning to move to Asia to give his bicycle mission an ending.
