The scenic ride is a must do. The ride is fairly easy ..we did it in the fixed gear bikes provided by the hotel. If you need to rent a bike..there are a few shops in town that'll cater to you but be warned. .its a sleepy town and many businesses don't open till past 11am. There is one shop... More

As the name suggest, the cycling track will take you past the beautiful beach facing the pacific ocean, then towards the mountains (don't worry you're not going to ride up the mountains) where you will get to see farms and vegetable plantations. As the trail is 21km long, be sure to rent a comfortable bike for the 4-5 hour adventure... More

I have cycled this 22km rail trail/bike trail several times in 2012 and 2014. It is an absolute pleasure to be able to leisurely ride a bicycle without having to deal with cars and motorbikes - and their awful fumes! The trail starts right behind Taitung's old train station. The first part of the route is on a pleasant wooden... More

one of the highlights of Taitung - a leisurely 20km circuit around city. Separated cycle way through quiet residential parts, rice fields, irrigation canals, mountain vistas through to the serene Forest park( worth a detour) , and coastal park back into town. Well signposted ( in Chinese) and plenty of rest stops with scenics views

The 12 km route in Kuan Shan is the first scenic bicycle route in Taiwan. I am impressed how the local government planned and constructed the road back in several years ago for all who love to ride the bike in the country side. Start from the bike rental place, you will ride through rice fields, flower plantation, strawberry U-pick,... More

This is the only place in Taiwan that I have cycled without being terrorized by reckless drivers. I cycled for over two hours without seeing a car, or even a scooter. Terrain is flat and unchallenging, but it's great here for a casual family leisure ride. Well done Taitung council!
