    Don't even know what to say man :-) I am just smiling and chuckling… You rock dude, it is so fun to follow you on Strava, thanks for uploading so many photos and for writing such detailed descriptions. Take it easy man, enjoy that memory!

    Hey I bumped into you in the mountains on the west coast somewhere. I was doing some bikepacking. I ended up riding up Wuling too, the day before you but from Hualien. It's such an amazing ride and can definitely relate to a lot of your story. Good work man! I'm going to have to come back and do it from Taichung, I really recommend giving it a try from Hualien another time. Nice photos too.

    Jeremy Barbe thanks man! Yeah I thought I might find you on Strava but you found me, cool! Taiwan is awesome for cycling. I'll be back again in October I hope. Will do the KOM, if all goes well. See you around!

    ERNEST EU Taichung is great, but so is Taipei. I hear Kaoshiung is good too, Tainan, Taitung, Hualien, etc. There's so many mountains in Taiwan everywhere.

    Tarmo. Been following u for awhile now. Well done to u for that Chiangrai stage race!! U are a massive rider and I have recommended my friends to follow u. I live in Chiangmai. (U might like to check my strava.). I was suppose to visit Taipei n plan to do the KOM route from both east 105km KOM route and from the west. I have done Doi Inthanon from ChomTong several times to the top. It's a very hard climb. How do u rate the Wuling 105km ride to the top vs the Inthanon ride to the top. Which is harder, steeper and takes out more out of u. Assuming u are applying the same effort all round? Cheers n thanks.

    @ERNEST for sure it's more tough in Taiwan, when you go above 2,500 meters it gets very tough, if you are not used to the altitude. If you want to ride up to 3,300 meters climbs, I recommend go somewhere where you can live at over 2,000-3,000 meters already to acclimatize days before, otherwise it's going to be very tough if you are used to living way below 1,000 meters. Inthanon is easy compared to Hehuan, only at the end can feel a little bit altitude. Weather is much cooler in Taiwan usually too, can be very cold up high.
