If you live in Taipei, and you like to bicycle, you may want to check out http://www.tas.edu.tw/community/cycling
There are groups of cyclists (mostly road at the moment) doing rides most afternoons and every weekend from Tien Mu. Some cyclists ride up from down town (hardcore!).
If you haven’t made it out into the Yangmingshan hills yet, you’re missing the best part of Taipei! Beautiful roads, very few cars, gorgeous scenery. Very hilly, but once you get used to riding slowly, it’s not a problem…
Feel free to e-mail me any specific questions you might have about riding around Taipei (email@example.com).
Hope to see you out there!
