You know a country means business when it dedicates an entire year to cycling; 2021 was Taiwan’s Year of Cycling Tourism.

But for those that know anything about Taiwan, this probably comes as no surprise. The country has a huge bicycle manufacturing industry (in all likelihood at least a part of your bike will have been built in Taiwan) and the government has invested for decades in its infrastructure and cycling culture. It’s not luck that means the country has thousands of kilometres of bike network.

The country is also blessed with a mostly subtropical climate and you’ll find everything from mountain peaks and rainforests to rice paddies, tea plantations, meadows, rivers, lakes, forests, wetlands and of course endless ocean vistas too.

Sadly, Taiwan has a tense relationship with neighbouring China, so you’ll want to keep an eye on official travel advice.

To find out more, we are delighted to bring your our introductory guide to cycling in Taiwan as well as our guide to the island’s famous Route 1 cycling route and infamous Taiwan KOM Challenge.

If you know Taiwan, or are planning a trip, do get in touch to tell us all about it!
