2018 YangMingShan Sunshine Ride

After two years of heavy rain while riding the YangMingShan Challenge, originally I planned to skip this year’s ride, saying to myself I’m done with the suffering.

Shitty weather in last year’s ride.

Nonetheless, few days before the event the weather turned out to be really nice, so immediately right after the flight I traveled up to Taipei and join the ride next day. Finally I got a 2018 YangMingShan Sunshine Ride!

The weather was so nice that you could see Taipei City clearly.

Thanks to the clear weather, this time in our YangMingShan Sunshine Ride the famous XiaoYouKeng (小油坑) was visible from the road. We’ll visit it more later after the ride.
