Introduction

After coffee and a safety briefing, we set off from the shop at 9:15a. We will head up the riverside cycling path towards Shezi Daotou Park, where you can see the Keelung and Tamsui River meet. We will head into Beitou, stop quickly at 711 for snacks and head up towards Lengshuikeng. Spotted with beautiful views and punchy climbs, this road delivers the best of what Yangmingshan has to offer. We will stop at many scenic spots along the way. There will be a small detour towards the jaw-dropping Qingtinggang grasslands if the weather permits. There are free public hotsprings dotted along the way to the top of the route. The highest point we will reach is 805 meters. There is an optional route towards Houshan where you can ride through quiet roads with amazing mountain views should the weather permit. We will descend back down into Xinbeitou via main and side roads. ALong the way we can stop at various places for more views, traditional snacks, and fun downhill routes. There will always be an optional extra climb here and there if you feel like you want to challenge yourself more. The ride will include lunch at the famous Lutetia Cafe. At the end of the tour, you will have ridden nearly 100km, and climbed 1650m! You will also be more knowledgeable of one of Taiwan’s most beautiful cycling spots. We will end back at the shop for a quick bike service, more coffee if needed, and a chance to share photos of the experience.
