Top 10 Classic Cycling Routes in Taiwan 2015

Recently,  Sports Administration of Education Ministry in Taiwan has run a campaign to select top 10 classic cycling routes in Taiwan 2015

The selection was based on 5 criteria: Health 健康, Accessibility 親和, Participation 參與 , Popularity 分享 and Youth 活力.  In short, it's called a H.A.P.P.Y. 幸福 campaign.

Additionally, online votes weighed 60% and judges' votes counted for the remaining 40%.  

I'm very happy to know that Sun Moon Lake Cycling Route, my second cycling experience in Taiwan so far, has been voted as 1 of the top 10 classic routes in Taiwan in 2015. Additionally, Sun Moon Lake is also voted as the most popular cycling route by online voters.

Since I love Taiwan so much and I look forward to more cycling experiences in Taiwan, here is to share with you all the Top 10 Classic Cycling Routes in Taiwan 2015:
