TAIPEI (Taiwan News)—Taiwan’s Tourism Bureau announced on Tuesday that the
agency and several local governments will jointly organize three free cycling picnic day excursions in September and October to promote nine selected bike paths in the East Rift Valley in eastern Taiwan.
The nine bike paths include Liyu Lakeside Bikeway, Loshan Bikeway, Yufu Bikeway, Guangfu Bikeway, Rueishei Bikeway, Wuling Green Tunnel Bikeway, Chihshang Bikeway, Luye Longtian Bikeway, and Guanshan Bikeway.
The East Rift Valley is a long, narrow valley flanked by the Central Mountain Range to the west and the Coastal Mountain Range to the east. Three rivers bisect the valley–Siouguluan River, Hualien River and Beinan River—creating beautiful scenery for the area. With pleasant views of vast paddy fields and seas of rapeseed flowers, the valley is an ideal place for in-depth bike tours, the Tourism Bureau said. [FULL STORY]
