Taiwan is often overlooked as a biking destination but contains some of the coolest riding & scenery on the planet! It is well worth a visit and trips can be easily organized.

One of my favorite mountain biking trails is called the NengGao, an epic high altitude single-track trail that starts at 2000m, takes you up to 3000m before bombing down to 1100m....awesome!

Another beast of a trail is called the Stone Deer Trail, a 6 hour epic through Taiwan's mountainous interior

You can also check out a really cool video of the trail on Youtube:

We also did a 10day / 800km road bike tour from Taipei in the north of Taiwan to Kenting in the south....one of the best trips in my life!
