Around Kaohsiung City, you will find these bikes for rental. Over the last year, the government had put an extensive effort to promote biking on this island and Kaoshiung City is no exception. The idea was to promote a Green City for the locals and to prepare for the World Games in July 2009 but I sincerely find that tourist should take this advantage of this system. It is so much easier to ride a bike and sightseeing around the city.
Here are some information and maps location
When my kids were here, my aim was to let them enjoy biking however I had other plans and those C-bike was not suitable for off-road riding. So my gracious friend, Ah Kuei had loan me 2 sets of Giant Yukon mountain bikes. Overall my kids had put in 230Km on these bike during their Jun 2009 school holidays.
After picking up the bikes from AK, the next day before the big ride 120Km to Kenting I brought the kids for a 20km warm-up ride around the city.
