KENNY Chang, 21, was taking a break from hiking in Taiwan admiring the scenery with his father when two Australian cyclists attracted his attention.
He Huan Shan mountain is not well known by foreigners and they were so surprised to see the men they stopped them for a chat - and a photo.
Mr Chang said he believed the bikers were taking the trans-highway route which goes from Taichung to Hualien city.
"The bikers attracted our attention because they were foreigners and also were in a full biking suit," Mr Chang said.
"As they stopped, we asked them to take a picture. Fortunately, we were able to talk to the bikers fluently because we all spoke English.
"We asked them where they were from, and they told us they were from Australia. I think they also said that they brought their own bikes from Australia to bike around in Taiwan. They were very happy to take a picture with us."
Now they want to give that image to the men. But they can't find them.
