You want to go to the train station area in any major town such as Jiaoxi, Yilan, Luodong, or Suao and look for cheap hotels there. The cheapest are usually called Lushe.
Most of these places don’t bother with the internet. hence no site.
Yes, the wind is north to south. The seasonal winds are from the northeast.
I recommend the northern cross from Longtan to Yilan. Maybe up the Luoma Rd. It’s cold and wet at this time of year. Dress accordingly.

I need a website that lists Cheap hotels in Yilan for an overnighter
Booking.com & expedia are just stupid - listing only client hotels, ie. expensive ones, or they think local means within 40k ie Taipei.
which kinda misses the point if you’re on a bike.
got some names for me?
PS on the east coast does the wind usually bow north to south?
