Lee Shao-wei, chief of Taoyuan County's tourism bureau, met with Jin's group later to wish them a good trip and festive experience as the Lunar New Year approaches. Since 2003, Jin has gone on cycling tours of Tibet , Xinjiang and Southeast Asian countries. His club is composed mostly of professors, civil servants and doctors.
