Chiayi to Chung Cheng: A Rural Bike Ride in Taiwan

My crazy boyfriend bikes 10k from Chiayi to Chung Cheng University for classes (and back again) during the weekdays. This weekend I decided to join him, and even though I still think he’s crazy, I think I get why he enjoys it.

There’s the happy biker.

If you bike from Chiayi to Chung Cheng University you will see…

And little temples.

When we finally arrived in Chung Cheng after about 45 minutes, I was blown away by the gorgeous, lush, green campus and unusual architecture. So while I might not be making the trek as often as Oscar does, I can assure you, I will be going to Chung Cheng by bike again someday soon.

And has such weird architecture.

Like, seriously weird architecture.

How to get there: Honestly, the easiest way to get there is to just type Chung Cheng University into Google Maps and follow the directions. There are a lot of twists and turns to the ride, and I wouldn’t recommend going without a GPS or someone who knows the way. I’d have been very lost had I not been following a student, but I know Oscar used Google Maps the first few times he made the journey.

The spray off that fountain was so refreshing.

Does anyone know some other fun bike rides around Taiwan? I’ve got at least a year here, so if you’ve got an idea, comment below, and I’ll add it to my trip list.

Please and thank you! 🙂
