Another beautiful day in Taipei and another 50km of riding!! Ting-hsun, a key member of the 'Bike Family' cycling club (鐵馬家族), a foot-powered group that works with Health, Bike, Life, joined Josh on one of his regular training rides. Adding a little tour of the Dadaocheng (大稻埕) area.
We set out from the Guanshan Riverside Park and made our way down the banks of the Danshui River, stopping at Dadaocheng, an old port area through which most of Taiwan's tea, fabric and other trade goods flowed in the 19th century.
We passed by by old tea factories, Chinese medicine shops and fabric stores that still operate, eating and cycling our way through history. Taiwan is famous for its snacks - here's what we had today:
50km later and averaging between 15-20kph we arrived back at Guanshan sunbaked and satisfied. Map My Ride LINK
