I don’t think I’ve ever felt relaxed doing downhill mountain biking. But if you’re just looking for flat, cross-country off-road riding, you can find it at the riverside park along Dahan River in Tucheng and Banqiao. There’re several wetland parks on the outskirts of the riverside park (between the park and the river itself) that have nice single tracks that will make your fat tires feel at home.
Are you chaps still about?
I know res is gone, but Alan’s Mtn Bike Shop still does frequent trips!
