Sample Lesson
Let's Bike!
Ruth Devlin

Biking is one way to experience the beauty of Taiwan. The Taiwan Cycling Festival organizes many events during the year. Light Up Taiwan is one special challenge in late summer. In it, riders bike to lighthouses on the farthest points north, south, east and west on the island. Riders can take their time and visit the four locations on a two-to three-day ride. There are other challenges for more experienced riders. Explore Taiwan by bicycle and see the beauty of these four points.
