Ride up to Maokong

April 21, 2007 - The southern mountains of Taipei are a tea region known as Maokong, and I got the nifty idea to ride up there based on maps. Maps - they don't love you like I love you.

This lomo is not too far up the climb. Freeways going through mountains. I was wondering how that worked from the maps, they don't love you like I love you.

Near the top of the climb, I suppose, looking north at Taipei. There were lots of old people running the mountain on that, a Saturday, morning. Very friendly. They all encouraged me, 加油, as I rode up. A cable car is scheduled to open next week leading up to the Maokong tea region. I rode by the terminal which was still being completed in April. I think it will attract a lot of people to go up there, and it will probably change the character of the region. It was fun riding up, but I will check out the cable car.
