I have been consulting this forum for a while. Since this is my first post, I'll start off by saying thanks to all the contributors for sharing all this useful information about cycling in Taipei.
I will be visiting the city next weekend (April 28th to May 2nd) and will be renting a road bike from the Specialized Concept Store (thanks to this forum for the tip!). I'd love to join you for your weekend ride, but I still have a few questions. Apologies if these were addressed earlier.
1) Is this weekend ride on Saturday? And is there a chance of a ride on Monday too given it will be Labor Day?
2) Do we already know what the course will be? I would not mind if the ride chosen is a classic Taipei ride with some climbs and views
3) Reading some of info on carrying bikes on the MRT, I read that, except for a few stations, I can take my non-foldable / road bike on the MRT. Is that accurate?
4) I will be staying close to Daan (Dongmen MRT), is it possible to cycle from there to the meeting point? Or city traffic is too bad?
Thanks, and hopefully, I'll get to see some of you next weekend.
