  • Welcome to day 11 of my Taiwan Cycling Trip.

  • Before today’s ride, I fueled up at a build your ownbentolunch box type restaurant,

  • which are very popular in Taiwan.

  • There are a bunch of items for you to choose from, and you can grab whatever you want

  • and add it to your plate.

  • There are usually a lot of healthy options, including a variety of vegetables, tofu, and fish

  • Most places give you the option to eat inside or to take your food to go

  • And the price is usually calculated by weight.

  • Everything I got here cost about 120 Taiwanese dollars, so only about $4 USD

  • Which is pretty fantastic considering how much food I got.

  • Now that I am fully fueled up, let’s start today’s ride!

  • What’s going on?

  • Not really sure on the day count anymore, but

  • I’ve been here a bit over a week now

  • It’s Thursday afternoon and

  • I’m nearing the end of my trip here in Taiwan

  • So I’ll be heading back, my flight back to Japan is Sunday night.

  • So Friday and Saturday might be my last two opportunities to cycle

  • I’m gonna try and ride Sunday if I can, but really depends if I can use the shower

  • at my hostel and get a late checkout and have time to pack up my bike before going to the airport.

  • So, starting to get a little sad, sinking in that my trip is over.

  • Of course, looking forward to being back in Japan, but it’s just been a great trip here

  • Lots of great new food to try

  • Pretty cheap, reasonable food, big portions, been really enjoying that.

  • Bubble tea every day

  • And also I can wear shorts and short sleeves while riding, which is really nice

  • I think it’s still too cold for that in Japan right now,

  • But were starting to get into Spring season, so should start to get some warmer weather

  • in Japan pretty soon once I get back

  • So this is my second time visiting Taiwan

  • And just really love it here, really enjoyed both trips

  • The cycling network, the food, people’s attitudes, and just general desire for improving

  • physical health, which is great to see.

  • Beautiful place, if you ever have a chance to come, it’s definitely worth to come out

  • and do a cycling trip

  • Great cycling, great food, great people.

  • Happy looking people

  • Dogs everywhere, if youre a dog person, youre gonna love it.

  • What else..?

  • Well, that’s all I can think of now

  • Maybe I’ll add some more a little bit later.

  • Today, just a relaxing day.

  • Got some work done this morning.

  • Went to a nice, big lunch buffet a little bit ago so

  • stomach's a little full.

  • Can’t ride hard, but it’s a beautiful day.

  • I couldn’t not ride, so I’m going out for a little spin right now to enjoy the sunlight

  • Hopefully work on my tan lines a little bit.

  • No specific plan, I’m just gonna ride along the river path, maybe take a turn I haven’t

  • done before and find something new.

  • And, just enjoy the views, enjoy the sunshine, and have a nice relaxing ride for one of my

  • last few rides here in Taipei.

  • So if you go along the river paths on the west side of Taipei going north, youll

  • arrive at this point,

  • Which is pretty beautiful.

  • This is where the rivers intersect into different directions

  • So going North and South this way, and East over that way

  • From here, you can see a couple of the biggest climbs there are around the area.

  • So behind me right now is one of the largest climbs north of Taipei.

  • Huge, just gigantic park.

  • Lots of great hiking, lots of great roads for cycling

  • I rode up it a few days ago, so therell be a video as well.

  • I’ll link to that video here.

  • But, that climb goes up above 800 meters for the road ascent on the road bike.

  • You can go up higher if you want to continue by hiking.

  • So really large climb, especially coming from sea level from a downtown major city

  • Amazing, huge climb just right at the doorway.

  • And here on the North West side of the city, there’s another mountain which is also a

  • really good climb.

  • I went up it the other day.

  • It was about 500 meters or so, so not quite as big, but still a large climb

  • And the great thing is from both of them, you have amazing views of other mountains

  • This one especially, you have a great view right into the city of Taipei, you have a

  • view of this other large mountain, and on the other side, you have a nice view of the

  • ocean and nearby port.

  • Just amazing views at the top of these mountains because it’s all so close to the ocean,

  • it’s all so close to the city, and even other mountain ranges, so depending on the

  • side youre at at the top

  • And which direction you look, you can so many different things.

  • So ocean, city, different mountains, just truly beautiful

  • So lots of people fishing here today, it’s a beautiful day.

  • Were gonna continue on and see if I can find some more of my favorite spots and talk

  • about them a little bit before I leave.

  • One of the other great things about the cycling paths is just the access to public restrooms

  • They have facilities like this all over

  • Basically every kilometer there’s at least one public restroom that you can use.

  • These are some of the nicer ones, so of course they have the more traditional portable toilets

  • where there’s not much to them and theyre a bit small and cramped,

  • But as you can see, these ones are huge, and theyve got them separated by category

  • So all gender / disabled, so theyve got handicap access.

  • It’s also large enough so you can bring your bike in if youre not comfortable leaving

  • your bike outside

  • And then they have a male one for quick urinals as well.

  • So great system and really convenient

  • been trying to find my way to the grand hotel here.

  • The roads to get here are a little bit complicated

  • So the only entrance I could find was this stair entrance, so I’m walking up the stairs

  • right now and hopefully this will get me to the hotel

  • Looks really beautiful from afar and can’t wait to see it up close

  • Alright, today’s goal has been achieved.

  • Made it to the hotel

  • As you can see from the video, this thing is massive.

  • Just huge.

  • I can’t even imagine how many rooms there are in this thing.

  • Unfortunately, not going to be able to check it out on the inside today.

  • Just wanted to ride by and check out the exterior

  • Really impressive stuff, beautiful, today’s mission a success!

  • Now time to head back to the hostel

  • Check out this black sesame snack!

  • Sesame on the top of the bread and black sesame on the inside

  • Raaaaaaaa

  • Can you say that one more time, Natalie?

  • No!

  • What was that about not ruining the tip?

  • The tip’s the best part, now stop making it dirty!

  • Good

  • Thanks for joining me on day 11 of my Taiwan Cycling Trip.

  • Sadly, were nearing the end of this trip with only a few days remaining,

  • but the last few days were especially awesome, and I have some great footage coming up.
