Wulai again

A view of Wulai from the backside

Wulai from the road toward Tonghou

Yesterday we got on the bikes and did another trip down to Wulai. We had made an appointment with H and her boyfriend X in Xindian, and the plan was to go to Tonghou. Again. At 5.15 (!) I received an SMS from H saying it was raining in the area, from Xindian all the way down to Wulai. She knew, because bf had called to wake someone up and ask.
After half an hour, H called and said it had stopped raining, so we jumped on the bikes and took off. We met H, X and one of their friends at the Xindian station at 8am, an hour later than originally planned. Half way to Wulai, it started raining again, but then we were already on the road, so who cares. We went all the way to Wulai where we had a cup of hot coffee and several Taiwanese snacks for second breakfast, then we went back. It wasn’t very tempting to continue into the mountains with all the rain, and we had already lost time in the morning. Since both D and I were working later in the day, we decided to do Tonghou some other time.

Facts From Xindian MRT station, follow road 9, Beiyi Highway (北宜公路) for about a km or so past the bridge. After the bridge, turn right at the Wulai sign and continue till the road ends in Wulai. Cross the small bridge for a cup of coffee or something to eat. It’s about 20km and 1.5h from Xindian MRT to Wulai.
