Fuguei to Eluanbi 370 miles
In January 2017 I cycled the Taiwan End to End with my chum Tim, from Fuguei at the northern tip to Eluanbi at the southern end.
The End to End route was roughly 370 miles and took nine days of cycling. We stayed inexpensively in guesthouses and hostels.
We cycled about 550 miles in total, including city-based day-trips, while in Taiwan.
Our bikes were hired from Giant. We picked up in one of their stores in Taipei, and returned them to a branch in Kaohsiung.
