TAIPEI, Taiwan (BRAIN)—In Motion Asia, Taiwan’s leading bike tour operator, will be putting on some exciting bike tours both during, and before and after, this year’s Taipei Cycle Show, allowing visitors the perfect opportunity to mix business with leisure, experiencing first-hand the world-class riding on offer in Taiwan.

Tour Schedule Options:

March 18: Day road bike tour from Taipei, over the Yangmingshan mountain range and back.

March 19: Day MTB tour to the wonderful 15km off-road Tonghou trail in Wulai, South Taipei.

All trips are fully supported with hotel and airport pick-ups and drop-offs, customized support vehicles, excellent accommodation, hot springs, huge local cultural and stunning riding.

“Cam’s intimate knowledge of the island, his meticulous attention to detail and his warm personality make him our go-to guy whenever we ride for fun or plan a formal ride event in Taiwan," said Andrew Juskaitis, Giant's global product marketing manager.

“The plan is simple,” said Cam McLean, owner and director of In Motion Asia. “Taiwan has arguably the best riding available anywhere in Asia with spectacular high mountain ranges, beautiful coastal sections and fun undulating agriculture-filled terrain. While Taiwan is a world leader in bike technology and manufacturing, few people know of the superb riding available just outside the cities. With so many bike-industry people coming to Taiwan this is a great opportunity for them to explore this wonderful island.”
