Bike ride from Liyutan (鯉魚潭) to Ruisui (瑞穗)

If you stay overnight near Liyutan, make sure you wake up early and stroll around the lake with your bicycle. It is very refreshing and by chance you might get to see beautiful sunrise from the east coastline.

After breakfast, you can start this day by visiting Chihnan Forest Park and ride down hills to connect onto Taiwan Cycling Route number one, which was the main cycling route that has been promoted by the government in the past few years.  This route has a separated bike path so you do not have to compete with the scooters, cars, and trucks for the main road. The advantage of riding along east rift valley side is that all signs are clearly marked so you will not get lost, and of course this route is quite flat comparing to the route that ride along the coastline.

First attractions in today's ride will be Fenglin Township, certified by Cittaslow International Organization as a good place to live slowly and peacefully. The other attractions include Mataian aboriginal tribe and wetland, Lintianshan forest, and Ruisui hotsprings for your good rest after a long day cycling trip.
