Where We Ride
We regularly ride these outstanding trails in and around Taipei. Get in touch if you'd like to join us for a ride.
Maokong Trail - Mucha, South Taipei
We start this ride from the shop. This is a classic Alan’s Mountain Bike ride and is something that you can only do in Taipei. The ride is 50% on road and 50% off road. From one look-out point, you’ll see the whole Taipei basin right under your feet. From another, you’ll see the Gondola running right over your head. The whole journey lasts around 3.5-4 hours. Some parts of the trail are considered to be technical and challenging to most guest riders. More experienced riders will love flying through the trail with their adrenaline pumping.
Maple Tree Valley - Taoyuan County
About 90% of the ride is off-road. You’ll indulge yourself in the forest and find lots of speed. Climbs, drops, berms, twists and turns are combined on this trail, and three big climbs will take your breath away. Be prepared for technical sections. Riding time on average is 3.5 hours. The trailhead is about a 40 minute drive from the shop.
JuenJianYan (Battleship Rock) - Beitou, North Taipei
This area offers a real mixture of riding through an interesting network of hiking trails. Though there are a few easy sections, the area is littered with numerous highly technical descents. The trails dry out quickly after rains and offer great views of Danshui, the Kuandu Nature Park and Taipei. Riding time is also around 3.5 hours. It takes about 40 minutes by car to get to the trailhead.
WuZhiShan (Ski Lift) - Neihu, North Taipei
This popular downhill trail is set in the mountains near Yangmingshan National Park. This trail challenges riders with numerous technical off-road sections. The trail is often very wet on top, but quickly dries as the rider descends. This is the most advanced trail that we regularly ride. Riding time is around 3.5 hours, depending on rider skill and fitness. It takes about 40 minutes to drive to the trailhead from the shop. Alternatively, you can road-ride to the top, which is a good option if you want an extra warmup before your descent.
