A Practical Guide to Bicycle Touring in Taiwan

Taiwan was recently ranked by Lonely Planet as one of the top destinations to discover in 2012.  We couldn’t agree more.
Great scenery, reasonable prices and a variety of climatic zones make Taiwan an excellent bicycle touring destination.  Surprisingly, Taiwan sees few foreign visitors.  This is one spot in Asia well off the banana pancake trail.

Taiwan is a sweet potato shaped island just off the coast of China.  It is home to around 23 million people, most of who live on the west coast.
The center of the country is very mountainous, with 100 peaks over 3,000 metres. The highest is Jade Mountain (Yu Shan 玉山) at 3,952 m (12,966 ft).

Not only is this the highest mountain in Taiwan, but all East Asia.

When to go bicycle touring in Taiwan
You can go bicycle touring in Taiwan pretty much year round.

The climate varies depending on elevation and whether you’re in the north or south.  Fall and spring are probably the best times to visit overall.  Rain can fall at any time of the year, so make sure you’re prepared.

Summers can be sweltering hot, but would be a good time to escape to the mountains and tour on one of the three cross-island highways.

We cycle toured Taiwan in late November and the weather was almost perfect.  A little rainy and cool in the north, but warm and sunny further south.


Taiwan is a good choice for a short bicycle touring holiday or as part of a longer Asia tour.   

Biking in Taiwan can be as easy or as difficult as you want to make it.  If you want a challenge, hit the mountains and cycle one of the cross island roads.  
If you want to take it a little easier, stick to biking the quiet roads of Taiwan’s east coast.

All in all, cycling Taiwan poses few difficulties.  You rarely have to cycle long distances without services, roads are in good condition and the country is safe enough that you can camp just about anywhere.
 

Highlights:

A dip in one of Taiwan’s many hot springs.
A visit to picturesque Sun Moon Lake (日月潭) – nestled at 762 m (2,500 ft) in the hills of Nantou County.
A ride through Takoro Gorge and a night camping in amongst the stunning limestone formations.
A food-fest worthy of a hungry cyclist at any of Taiwan’s numerous night markets.
