Easily… some beautiful riding to be had in Taiwan… up and down and across the island, on and off road
AWOL: is that not the last pitch below HeHuan Shan? 3,000m and the air is getting a tad thin for comfort.
that road from Puli (400m) to HeHuanShan (3200m) is 55km of pain. but stunning!
looks like you had better weather than I have had up there. I’ve had friends riding it in snow, too.[/quote]
Ok, now I know what you’re talking about. I’ve driven up that road and hiked to the top of the peak. That would be a fantastic ride for the ultrafit. I remember being totally surprised when driving there at how beautiful it was – a completely different view of Taiwan I hadn’t seen before.
But, I have to be in the office by 9:00, so I’ll stick with the river paths, thanks.
