Into The Sunset: Dadu Shan Hill Loop

After all that rain, I finally made it out for a Monday night ride over Dadu Shan and back. What a great evening for sunsets. 

The route has a lot of climbing packed into 48km, and I probably should have taken off 15min earlier for a little more daylight through the tricky bits, but it was a good evening ride. 

It is often far too easy to forget how great it is to be a cyclist in Taichung if we can tolerate the nasty traffic. Lots of options for every type of rider.  


  1. I did a Dahu Shan ride today as well. I do all my weekday riding during the early afternoon and today I was blown away by the clarity, puffy clouds and depth of the landscape. I had to stop multiple times and just soak it in, it made me a bit homesick for coastal BC. -Dallas

  2. I always find the evenings in Tainan or Kaohsiung to be beautifully calming. It is a different mood of sunset down there.
