The Pinglin loop from Taipei

Did another ride down to Pinglin and back yesterday, so now I’ve been to Pinglin on the bike twice in five days. H, X and four other friends were going all the way down to Jiaoxi because they hadn’t biked there yet and they wanted to take a look at the “9 turns and 18 […]

Shuangbei — the Northern Cross Island Highway and the Taibei – Yilan road

Three days on the bike to get from Taipei back to Taipei again. The Northern Cross Island Highway is the most northerly of the cross-island highways, and the proximity to Taipei means that there is more traffic and pollution on the roads leading to the highway. In addition, some kind of construction project is going […]

Northern Cross Island Highway

And yet another one…

The weather was too good today to waste another day working, so I didn’t. At least not in the morning. Instead, I took another trip up to Fengguizui, almost completely alone on the road on a Tuesday, only one other biker on the way up. Not a cloud in the skies until I got closer […]

And another trip up to Fengguizui

Sunday was Mother’s Day, so the Taiwanese part of the Sunday crew, ie, everyone but me, went home to celebrate their mothers. Instead I was joined by N for that trip up to Fengguizui that never happened last weekend. It was his first ride up Wuzhishan. Didn’t feel too energetic when we started out, but […]

10th May, 2008


Last Sunday was one of those days. We were planning to meet by Lianhe Bao at 8 — there was a party the night before — for another ride up Five Finger Mountain. By 8.30, H and X were still not there, so we took off anyway, leaving messages on their turned off mobiles. By […]
