[ Secret River Valley! ] AoWanda Complete Ride Part 1 來騎奧萬大之一

AoWanda Complete Ride Summary

Background

This AoWanda Complete Ride was the full version of the previous ride done during Lunar New Year, using well functioned bike.

Thanks to the working bike, I was able to travel further and had time for some drone images and videos of the great AoWanDa river valley.

Start: PuLi 埔里

Our AoWanda Complete Ride began again at the great mountain town PuLi, with equal great weather just as last time!
