Dunhua Road Linear Park Bike Riding

Really enjoying the paths in the middle of Dunhua Road lately. The trees and bushes are filling in and helping give a nice appearance and blocking out the traffic noise. Not so much traffic and bad air

It’s more for casual bike riding sometimes requiring stops at stop-lighted intersections.

The tree lined areas are pretty spectacular in some areas. The trees and shadows are beautiful mornings and beautiful at night with the lights just very nice.

  • Between Keelung Road and Renai Road is nice and unbroken.
  • Between Renai Road and Nanjing Road has intermittent paths.
  • Between Nanjing Road and Minquan Road at the Taipei Airport is nice and unbroken.
  • The west side of the road seems to have a little bit more path.

Feels like I live the farthest away from any riverside bike path so this is a good option.

I wish they would develop the area between Zhongxiao and Nanjing. Mostly no paths in those areas.


What about Renai Rd? Aren’t there ridable paths on the islands in the middle?

I think it breaks at Minsheng E Rd, coming from Nanjing E Road, then continues for another section to Minquan.

Not much. Only one or two spots.

Another park you can bike through is the linear park right above the MRT red line between Zhongshan and Yuanshan stations.

Another option not that far away: following the Keelung River path (on the south side) roughly connecting Yuanshan to Songshan MRT stations.

The old railway line from to Tamsui! By the side of the lane that follows this going south a block or two before Minquan West station there’s a bust commemorating a guy who saved a child who was playing on the tracks from being hit by a train.
