This blog is designed to provide information for people living in Taiwan, especially those living in Taipei or northern Taiwan who are interested in going hiking/cycling but are unsure of where to go.
All cycling and hiking trips listed here can be easily done as a day-trip from Taipei using public transportation. The hikes are low level usually requiring you to bring nothing more than a bottle of water.
So, if you would rather get of Taipei on a Sunday than spend your time battling the crowds to get a seat in a coffee shop, food court, or movie theater, then this blog should prove useful to you.
On most of these hikes/rides you’ll encounter few people, even on Sundays, and even fewer foreigners. So I hope to see you out there on the trails sometime. Taiwan is a beautiful island and a lot of it easily accessible.
This blog is a work in progress as I continue to add information on more places and to explore more places myself. Also, new cycling trails are currently being constructed all over the island, meaning there will be even more to do in the future.
