Chihshang Bicycle Trail
Saturday: Open 24 hours a day
Surrounding the Dapo Pond, Chihshang Bicycle Trail is a noted popular scenic site in Chihshang Township. In sunny days, a large number of nature-loving travelers come to the bike path, feeling rural atmosphere in fields. Here people temporarily switch their attention from cellphones or tablet devices, heading up to breathe in the fresh air while riding bicycles. It feels like returning to the simple moment.

An Exceptional Cycling ExperienceIt was a totally new and magnificent experience cycling in the rice fields and following the irrigation canals along this designated bicycle path. Given the expanse of the rice fields and the hills in the surrounding areas, it was an invigorating experience just being able to enjoy the marvellous scenery and agriculture. There are maps located along the bicycle path so it is not difficult to find your location along the many tracks mean you can cycle here for hours on end. There are a few pavilions located along the cycling track although one is pretty much out in the open fields most of the time with little shade. So if you go on a hot sunny day, remember to put on some sunblock. Because of the popularity of Mr Brown Road, this bicycle pathway is more crowded than the rest that I've cycled in (Guanshan, Taitung City). Watch out for the occasional small lorries used by locals that also utilize the bicycle track to get to their destination in the village or rice fields.
cycling among the rice fieldAfter the Eva commercial filmed here, the government closed off the roads to make a cycling path. There are several paths and you can bike freely in the fields. I went in early September when the rice was green and still young, but each month you see something different. Bike rentals are cheap (3 dollars) and some companies let you return it in a different location. A bit crowded with local families on the weekends tho.

Very nice rideMy family visited Taitung in July and visited Chishang due to the famous rice and related products. Coincidentally, we found many bike stores around the town ( just outside the train station ). The price was reasonable and we ended up rented 3 bikes for 3 hours followed by renting a motorized family bike touring the town. It was a pleasant day out despite it rained heavily during the day.
Perfect place for relaxing cycling台東池上鄉位於台灣多部的花東縱谷內，坐擁中央山脈與海岸山脈的美景外，更是重要的稻米產地，因為水質與氣候得宜，所產的池上米遠近馳名！ 而自行車道就規劃在稻田與灌溉水圳之間，騎乘於此可享受田園風光與寧靜，...
很棒的地方我個人認為，拜訪池上最佳的方式是清晨用徒步散步～ 本月趁著秋收之前到池上拜訪，漫步在自行車道上，享受清晨無人的寧靜。 餅舖老闆的收藏及人生經驗分享。都是我在池上記憶的一部分。 池上不是只有飯包，它的內涵...
