Fengguizui revisited

A view of Xizhi from Wuzhishan
Another ride to Fengguizui (風櫃嘴), but today we returned by way of Neihu. Following the road signs from Fengguizui toward Neihu, you eventually return to the city on Changqing Rd (長青路) and then Chenggong Rd (成功路). It's a pleasant ride down toward Neihu with nice views of Xizhi and down toward Jilong, but there are more houses and traffic than coming up from Shuangxi, so I'd rather return than come up this way. Another short ride, totaling 44 km in 2.5 hours on the bike and 4.5 hours including coffee break and view gazing.
Facts Here's a better description than last time. After the National Palace Museum, continue toward Shuangxi (雙溪). Pass an exit toward Neihu and continue until you get to the exit to Wanli (萬里). Turn right and cross the bridge. It's just below seven kilometers and a 600m climb to Fengguizui where you can get a coffee and replenish water supplies. At the T-intersection a kilometer or so after the bridge, take a left. When you get to Fengguizui, there are signs pointing toward Neihu. It's all downhill from Fengguizui, about 10km down to Neihu. After two km you can descend to Xizhi by taking a left. You reach Neihu on Changqing Rd. Take a left where it ends and then a right at Chenggong Rd until you reach Minquan Rd. where you take another right to reach the central parts of Taipei by crossing the Minquan Bridge.
