Shiding revisited

Shiding valley
A valley somewhere along the way up to Helen's coffee shop in Shiding
Y esterday we did another trip to Shiding and Helen's coffee shop. A tour that is not too long and tiring since we want to be fresh tomorrow when we set out on our three-day trip across the island and over the central mountain range, either on the northern cross island highway or the southern. More details another day, now we're off to buy the final things for the trip. A quartet
One after the other, they made it to the rendez vous.
Breakfast
Mayou ji, chicken cooked in rice wine. This one was so potent that we were almost drunk just by smelling it. Not a big breakfast hit, it was probably both the first and the last time I had this dish before 10am

Facts Follow the standard biking road from Taipei toward Shenkeng, ie, Heping E Rd to the end, where it changes names to Jungong Rd (軍功路) until it hits Rd 106, which begins as Muzha Rd (木柵路) and then changes names to Beishen Rd (北深路). Follow that road until the road splits toward Pingxi, road 106 to the left, and road 106A (106乙) to the right, at a 7-Eleven. Follow 106A to the right for a couple of km until the road splits again at a Hilite convenience store. Take a right across the bridge and after another 2km take a right where the road splits toward Sifenzi (四分子) (follow road 47). After another 7km uphill, there's a T-intersection when road 47 hits road 106. Take a left and you'll hit Helen's coffeeshop after another km or so. Continue along 106 and you get to Pinglin.
