Armstrong of Oz, who ordered her Bike Friday from Australia’s first and only dealer, Epic Cycles, seems to be out and about touring Vietnam. Here she is on Hai Van Pass, for example.

How I’d love to see the beauty of this mountainous tropical land held in firm check by a socialist idealogy. Apparently, we’re not the first two to think it’s a good idea. The Adventure Cycling organization led me to a Lonely Planet guide as well as a tour company that specificially tours to Vietnam. Personally, though, I’d probably shack up with Bike Friday owner Jason Williams who runs Grasshopper Adventures which tours all over Asia, since, among other reasons, he sometimes gives BF owners some pretty special offers. I’d probably want to go to Laos of all the Asian countries he goes to, though. Anyone been?
