《南聊》單車要件Cycle Element

【是運動、是工作、是生活,是單車要件】 – 單車要件Cycle Element

地址:台南市北區前鋒路167號
受訪人:建良
台南人

與建良的認識是由於掘旅希望來訪人們能透過單車的方式更細緻地走訪台南巷弄,後來這個初衷卻讓我們得以擴展單車視角的台南生活。
從小生活圈並未離開台南太久的建良,你卻很難在他身上嗅到現代人在單一城市生活許久後常見的僵固氣息。小學五年級由鄰居帶領的一趟長途騎行,啟蒙了他的單車生活,爾後一路到大學時期歷經摩托競技,至此兩輪之間的轉動多是效率與速度的追求。退伍後建良在荒野保護協會待了一年,當中整個團隊與自然的互動關係使他在騎行之間關注的焦點有所改變,開始更多地注意周圍環境的變化,而單車之於建良也漸漸成了夥伴的角色。其後整合了一年半的捷安特生涯,帶著專業,也帶著將騎行融為生活要件的念想,單車要件經由這種種累積於2015年上路。
談到專業,建良表達出了感慨。關於修單車這件事,就像水電、設計或眾多服務業等,得將多年累積知識去蕪存菁才能於片刻間正中異樣的核心,然而我們過去習慣以勞力或工時的方式來看待自己的產業,忽略了知識與經驗的價值;另一方面劣幣驅良幣的情況加速惡性循環也讓尊重專業這件事與我們漸行漸遠;但單車要件沒有停在感慨,我們在那天下午與陸續來訪騎行者的來往中,看見了信任關係的建立;車店、單車與騎者三方的相互尊重,是單車要件空間裏和諧氣氛的來源。
回到台南單車生活,建良推薦了漁光島、水交社一街。漁光島過去在地人稱秋茂園,曾經是烤肉郊遊的聚集處,卻由於垃圾堆積速度過快逐漸走向荒廢;近年來台南年輕人回潮,開始有人嘗試淨化沙灘、有人利用廢棄蚵棚搭起日落塔,建構起了漁光島特有的風景;一路從單車要件騎過老城區、安平、海灘,來回不過一小時,卻可看見府城四百年來建築的演變;而水交社過去作為日軍宿舍與國民政府時期眷村,配合著附近的小西門區域會是一趟不錯的府城歷史騎行。
訪談的最後建良分享了"單車失竊記"這本書(非電影),給還沒有單車概念但想在生活中納入單車元素的人一個參考。書中主人翁闡述單車之於他從原來不過是生活工具的角色,到結筆時單車已成為家族間的情感連結;在閱讀的轉折間我們與單車要件聊過的單車生活理念也跟著翻了一遍
- 人與自然的關係,值得你也一起閱讀。

台南騎行後食物推薦:龍眼冰(龍泉冰店)、麻豆豆菜麵。

We met Jian Liang, the owner of Cycle Element, since Journey Hostel hoped our guests could visit Tainan in a more thorough way. And because of this we have a chance to experience life in Tainan through bicycling.
As a permanent residence of Tainan, it’s hard to find dullness, which is common for people live in a single city, from Jian Liang. His love towards bicycling began in his fifth grade of elementary school, when his neighbor took him to a long-distance ride. Since then he had sought for speed, including his joining in motorcycle competition in collage. Yet after completing the military service, Jian Liang participated in The Society Of Wilderness for one year; being a part of the environmental-protection team and after observing the interaction between human and nature, he learned to focus on different things while bicycling. He thus adjusted his speed and attitude for life, integrating his three-year “Giant life", his professional competence and the idea of merging bicycling into daily life; Cycle Element is established through these concept.
To be continued..
