YURIY RYASHKO - 02/24/2021

‘Come! Bike Day’ is an annual two-day, multi-discipline cycling event with over 2,000 local riders. Traditionally held in November, it is one of the six nation-wide events that make up the annual Taiwan Cycling Festival. This post reviews the augmented routes of the ‘Come! Bike Day’ Festival available on ROUVY. 

Excited to discover and explore Taiwan? Then jump on your bike trainer and discover two of the most iconic hills in Taiwan: Route 14 from the central island town of Puli, and also Tatajia, one of the highest passable roads in the country! 

 

Route 14 Hill Climb

 

 

Route 14 up to Puli, through Renai, delivers a picture of classic central Taiwan views and switches onto the old Route 8 before reaching the peak. Steady uphill makes it a perfect ramp workout as well. 

 

 

  • Distance 10.1 km
  • AVG grade 7 %
  • Ascent 734 m
  • Max grade 18 %

There are two other routes that feature rolling hills and tough little bergs which form the road that encircles Taiwan’s famous Sun Moon Lake (one clockwise and one counter-clockwise). The lake and its surroundings are one of the most popular holiday and weekend destinations in the country.
