TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – “Sansing” (三星鄉) — the mentioning of the name immediately evokes the images of green scallion and fried pork (卜肉), a delicious local delicacy, with which the name of the township in Taiwan’s northeastern county of Yilan has come to be associated.

However, for people who like outdoor activities, what do they come here for besides eating crispy scallion pancakes and fried pork? The answer could lie in the Annong River Bikeway (安農溪自行車道).

The 15 km bikeway runs along the left embankment of the Annong River between the upstream Lanyang Power Plant (蘭陽電廠) in Sanxiang and the downstream Waizaiwai Bridge in Luodong Township.

While riding along the bikeway, cyclists can enjoy idyllic scenery surrounding the bikeway that is dominated by paddy fields, scallion fields, and luxury cottages, as well as verdant mountain ranges in the distance.    [FULL  STORY]
