I'm Rob Ainsley. I cycled the length of Taiwan — along the east coast from Fuguei in the north to Eluanbi Peninsula in the south — with my chum Tim Burford in January 2017.
Blog posts from the trip are listed in the menu on this page in web view. If you're in mobile view, go to the post from Day 1.
Tim's blogs on the trip — amongst his many other travels — are on his site UnravelTravel.org. His photos from the trip are on Tim's Facebook photo album.
The End to End route was roughly 370 miles (see map on right with mile counters — there's also a larger version) and took nine days of cycling. We cycled about 550 miles in total, including city-based day-trips, while in Taiwan.
We used hire bikes from Giant. We picked up in one of their stores in Taipei, and returned them to a branch in Kaohsiung. There's a page on this blog with information for anyone planning to cycle-tour here.
This trip was part of Rob's long-term project of cycling international End to Ends:
