our ride down to Gukeng a few weeks ago Drew and I realized that we could easily make the Caoling tourist area from Taichung in a day. So to open this ride we reprised that one, starting in Taichung and running down 3 to 149. 149 is a pleasant ride up an easy grade. On the way we stopped at McDees in Mingjian for some coffee and fast food fuel.
our previous visit.
will have a few sharp words to say about the idiocy of designating the rush hour local train as the sole bike train of the evening on a Sunday. I will simply say that it was great to be home after awesome mountain riding in the glorious Alishan area. Map of the route.
