Training support for friends from Singapore, 5 days in the beautiful mountains.

Our client wanted to attend the  Gigathlon race, a six-day-long super triathlon, including (of course) swimming, cycling and running. However, he works in Singapore where no decent mountain to climb, so he flew to Taiwan and we helped him to have a 5-day training and touring.


First day, 77km of the province way No.9 in the mountains.

The third day, Taroko to Da-yu Mt., 68km hard climinb.

Another colleague of the client, joined halfway.


Taroko, the most stunning view in Taiwan.


From the coast to high mountain, this route is full of magnificent scenery.
The fourth day, Li Mt. to Wu-Ling, 40km, the highest road of Taiwan.

In front of the famous hotel.

Altitude: 3000m.


Thin air and low temp made the climbing quite difficult.


3275m altitude, the highest point of all roads of Taiwan.


the fifth day, Pu-li to Big Snow Mt., 66km.





The bridge was under construction. They had to shoulder carry the bikes.

Big Snow Mountain, finished!



The sixth day was an easy way home. The client's company also took this chance to held a fund raise.

During these 5 days, they went through almost all the famous mountain routes in Taiwan, total mileage over 300km and over 8000km of climbing. It was not easy even for a well-trained rider.

We are quite happy that we have helped them finish the journey, and we welcome more foreign friends to come to Taiwan and enjoy the ride.
