NileGuide Expert tip:
Yen is the English-speaking half of the Alan's Mountain Bike duo. She can help you with rentals and tour booking.
If you walk south along Roosevelt Rd. from KungKuan MRT station or north from WanLung Station, you'll come across a small, family owned mountain bike shop. Alan's Mountain Bike opened its doors in 1997 to promote off-road bike riding in the mountains of northern Taiwan.
If you've ever ventured out of Taipei to the surrounding areas, you'll understand why Alan and his wife Yen have such a passion for the natural beauty of Taiwan.
At Alan's, you can rent hardtail or full suspension bikes or organize a guided ride with the man himself.
