If you want to explore Taiwan’s backcountry in style, then mountain bikes are the way to do it. Choose from a selection of bikes and follow your instructor to Maokong (貓空) for a strenuous, exciting ride through the mountains and down treacherous hills. Bike back on your own and stop for some refreshing local tea.
Picked up from your location at 8am after breakfast (on your own), with bikes and equipment already on hand. We will take a short drive to the base of Maokong Mountain, famous for the tea plantations, and the delicious tea infused meals at the top.
We will park, and bike to the top! The trail is quite tricky, often very technical and requires a good amount of fitness. On the way down we will cruise through bamboo farms, technical, rocky terrain, single track, and some fast, flowy sections!
When we arrive at the transportation we will load up the bikes and get you back to the city!
