Taipei city bike rentals (sticky)

For anyone who wants to rent a bike in Taipei, the features section of Taiwan’s best English-language newspaper, the Taipei Times, ran an article on the Taipei City Government’s bike rental system in today’s edition, Share and share a bike.

The program, which is a joint project between the city government and Giant, provides cheap rentals, at NT$10 per 30 minutes, for city bikes. The website gives a good explanation of how the system works and also has a map showing all the rental stations in the city, at Youbike.

    Thanks for this! But are there any places in Taipei where I could rent a proper bike if i wanted to make a longer trip?

    My friends and I are planning a trip around taiwan and your beautiful pictures and write-ups provide much inspiration 😉 In our case, we intent to rent road bikes from Taipei if possible. Are you able to suggest some bike shops we can contact for road bike rental inquiries? Thanks.
