Gorge-ous Riding on the East Coast: Hualien 64
Ruigang Industry Rd) follows the gorge through which the rafting rides from Rueisuei come down. Hence, when you turn onto that road, the first thing you see is the rafting terminal. Running along the gorge the road rises several times, ending in a set of switchbacks that takes you up 200 meters or so for the final climb before Rueisuei. It is surpassingly beautiful and, with ~24 kms of hilly riding, a pretty good workout. Highly recommended.
