Finally made my first (metric) century! Huzzah!
I did Luoma Road and most of the county road to Neiwan. But as it was getting close to lunch time and I pushed myself fairly hard on Luoma Road (I didnt even take a break between Fuxing OK-Mart and the county line) I just didn't have enough gas to get up that steep and rough road over the ridge into Neiwan. So I turned around and took another county road back to Guanxi where I made the obligatory stop at the 7-11 there (if you have a road bike or big motorcycle you must stop there and look cool, preferably drinking a coffee and smoking a cigarette) for lunch. Then I climbed against a gale-force headwind up the big slow hill to Longtan. I never realized how thirsty one can get due to wind blowing straight into the mouth.
From Shimen Dam I took the bike paths all the way back to Yingge. You cant even begin to imagine how happy I was not to have to take the boring ass Highway 3 back through Longtan and Daxi. I love that bike path so much that I want to marry it and make little bike path babies. I'm going to use it every time I come back from Hsinchu county.
Now I really want to go back and conquer that road from Yushan Village to Neiwan. But next time I'm going to take the bike paths and the Candyass Highway (3) down to Guanxi instead of doing the 7-B, 7 and Luoma Road first.
