I just stumbled upon this thread while searching for DH riding in the Taipei area. I just moved here last week for a 3-4 year stay and am looking to find some trails to ride and people to ride with (XC and DH both). I was a pro downhiller back in the states for a number of years before I decided going that fast was just unwise and no longer enjoyable, so lately I’ve been spending most of my time behind a camera lens and not enough on my bike (for those of you that follow DH websites, I’ve been one of the guys supplying the World Cup photos over at Vital and Pinkbike). Definitely looking to put the camera down for a while and have some fun riding again, maybe even fit in a race or two if there are any.
I’m in Taipei so for now I’m primarily looking for rides in this area. At the moment I do not yet have a car, but will shortly when I’ve got the rest of my move sorted out. What do you all suggest?
