Fantastic two weeks of cycling adventures in Taiwan with Pedal Taiwan. Thanks Rob for organising a true tour de force. Although the cycling was superb and what we went for... read more loved the mix of great food, culture, walks, swims, hot springs and all the extras provided along the way by Bradley who went all out to give us some great memories. Cheers Rob wish i was still out there.

Cycling with Pedal Taiwan over the last 2 weeks was an unforgettable cycling experience. The event included cycling along the east side of the island, the southern most point being... read more Eulanbi, up to Keelung and then finishing in Taipai. Somewhere in this journey we managed to include the KOM challenge, a ride from sea level, through the Taroko Gorge and ending up some 110km later at the 3275m summit.
The views en route were stunning,Pedal Taiwan incorporated places of interest to stop at and explore, hot springs, street markets... The roads were smooth and cycle friendly. The food stops and restaurants in the evenings gave us the chance to enjoy some superb Taiwanese food. The Taiwanese people so welcoming and friendly.
But an amazing plus was the fact that my non cycling husband was able to join in and cycle with the peloton, courtesy of an electric bike organised by Pedal Taiwan.
He thoroughly enjoyed this cycling adventure, so if an experience can transform a virtual novice to someone who has now booked and will join me on another cycling adventure then clearly Pedal Taiwan must have done a superb job. Many thanks to Rob who organised the event and the guides/ backup (Frank and James) for a great holiday.

The Pedal Taiwan tour provided interesting and challenging rides, and the opportunity to sample the wide range of food options.
Usually a cycling tour will cover only a small part... read more of a country. However when I looked at the main places of interest, I concluded that this cycling tour was probably the best way to see the country. The 2-week itinerary took us north up the east coast as well as around Taipei, so really most of the places of interest were covered. I tacked on several days for some extra sightseeing.
Rob provided a well organised, relaxed and enjoyable itinerary, and was backed by an excellent tour leader in James, and a great mechanic in Frank. Accommodation was of a high standard, with a mix of hotels and B & B's. His research and experience on the best places to eat was also a bonus - it was fun to try different and unusual foods, particularly in the night markets.
It was a great cycling holiday and I would recommend it to others

2 week trip involving exploration of Taipei a bullet train ride and then more fabulous cycling along the southern and eastern coast before mountain climbs and descents. Thanks to James... read more and Frank our bike support team and Rob for organising everything so efficiently . The food was amazing and the guiding team enabled us to explore all sorts of fabulous local restaurants the street food was unusual and really added to the experience. The Taroko gorge was an epic challenge but with a mixed ability group Rob and his team still managed to provide support to the front and the back of the peleton and I think all the party ended the day exhausted but satisfied with the achievement. Would recommend the trip to anyone with a sense of adventure keen to explore Taiwan

We had a great time. The cycling was fun and the brochure descriptions give a clear indication of what to expect. For a part time cyclist like me the trip... read more was challenging but achievable even if i was a little slow up the 87k climb! My wife had a great time on a hired electric bike which made hill climbing very easy. We enjoyed the mix of cycling and stopping off to see the sights - hot springs, tea plantations, night markets, great food, temples, friendly people. The accommodation worked really well even in remote locations and the support team were helpful throughout.

This was my second cycling trip to Taiwan, and it was even better than the first. We cycled from south to north, taking in the amazing Taroko Gorge climb. This... read more is an epic climb, which the pro cyclists race up each year, but with Pedal Taiwan's help our group of retired amateurs managed to get to the top. The food, sightseeing, accommodation and support were all brilliant and once again I was blown away by the quality of the cycling - beautiful scenery, perfect roads, polite drivers and friendly locals. A big thanks to Rob, James and Frank for making the trip so special.

We had a 2 week tour with our guide James who not only is a keen cyclist but is passionate about his country, it's history, people, sight's and delicacies.
The... read more roads in Taiwan are of a high standard and we were shown the best rides to sample the tarmac - with stunning views.
Great accommodation with some real surprises throughout the regional areas - again local knowledge uncovers gems.
Riding the Taiwan KOM course was a highlight and an epic experience.
I can highly recommend you putting Taiwan on your cycling to do list and let Rob and James from Pedal Taiwan look after you.

The cycling... read more routes were spectacular- incredible scenery with virtually no traffic! We joked that we weren’t sure whether we were on a cycling tour or a food tour!

We think of ourselves as a family. We have all journeyed down different roads, but have come together united in our shared passion – cycling in Taiwan.
Our team of experts love sharing their favourite local haunts, treating you to a unique colourful experience of the island. We combine our love of cycling with our passion for the local culture and cuisine.
Born and raised in Taiwan, James spent several years living in the USA, before returning to his homeland to pursue his passion – cycling.
James has been guiding both foreigners and Taiwanese around the island for over 10 years. He knows every route, repair station and rest stop like the back of his hand, and he’s always making new friends on the road!
Originally from the UK, Rob has been organising and leading bicycle tours across Taiwan for the last several years.
An avid cyclist, Rob first came to the bicycle kingdom in 2016 to ride the ‘ban-dao’ and just never left. His second love to cycling is food, and he’s happiest when bringing hungry riders home-made local Taiwanese treats!
There’s no mechanical on earth that Frank can’t fix. Growing up in Taiwan, he quickly discovered he had a talent with tools. and has been fixing, tuning and tweaking bicycle ever since.
When he’s not on the road leading a tour, you’ll most likely find him working in his Taoyuan bike shop, or testing out his latest set of wheels!
