Taiwan Round Island Day 1 （台湾自行车环岛）: Taipei - Hsinchu （台北 - 新竹）
This route is filled with twists and turns among rolling hills; for riders who are comfortable with climbing then this route, with its total ascent of 300 meters in elevation, will be an easy ride.
Today’s journey is a great one, with numerous places to stop along the way to grab a tasty snack. The longest old street in Taiwan, which dates to Japanese colonial times, is found in Sanxia, along this route.
After leaving Sanxia, the route heads to Shimen Reservoir where you can stop for a rest and a bowl of herbal-jelly shaved ice in Guanxi. After riding for 80 km, you arrive in Miaokou, Hsinchu, which is known at the Windy City.
The City God Temple, grade-three national historic site, welcomes you. Renowned snack stands await you and your tired legs near this famous monument.
