Just checking if there are any rides planned for tomorrow. I’m visiting from Hong Kong and brought my bike. I’ve done some pretty good rides this week (Taroko to Wuling and back) but have only one more day tomorrow before flying home on Sunday.

Caught me at a bad time!

I usually ride every Saturday, but am flying out tomorrow for a week!

Sorry! There is a ride going out from Taipei American School at either 5:30AM or 6AM. Try the Yang Ming Shan Cycling Group on Strava or the same name on FB.

Happy riding!
