Map). I hadn't been on this route since 2009, and had been itching to ride it. The second day of this ride, from Baling to I-lan, is one of my favorite routes on the island.
But the good thing was, the young people who had crammed in there with us were enthusiastic and interesting, and we had a great time chatting about biking and touring, until we debouched at Nuannuan for the ride back to Jeff's house. A fantastic ride, great weather, great people -- wish YOU had been on it with us.
