I’ve always had this addiction to just biking around Taipei, Japan as well but just because I’ve been in Taiwan longer. It’s so relaxing to actually be in control of things and go explore around the city at your own pace. Plus it’s good for cardio I guess and passes the time lol.
I wasn’t as in to it when I lived in Danshui because you just can’t bike around as much without almost being run over by scooters lol.
We out for about like six hours last night from one end of Taipei to the other, went to Carrefour in 西門町, which was nice because when I used to live around there I’d always do shopping like 1-3am so I know the staff that works there on overnights. That’s actually the best time to go because it’s not crowded as fuck.
