GaoMei TaiChung Wetland Ride
Strolling Through WuQi Fishing Harbor
In our GaoMei TaiChung Wetland Ride we continued exploring WuQi Fishing Harbor, riding through fish market and the habor.
An array of refrigerators!

Having enough of the harbor, we went out and back to GaoMei Wetland, heading north.

REAL Wind Battle
To head to DaJia (大甲), we had to cross a high rise highway over DaJia River. Here the wind reached its strongest point in our GaoMei TaiChung Wetland Ride: You really felt you were riding in dragging water, and had to tough up your muscle to respond to sudden strong side turbulence. Super fun!
Entrance to high rise highway.
Feel the Force!
The hardest part ended.
After coming down from the highway, we headed towards the shore and continued enjoying the shore view, at the same time continued battling the wind!
There were quite a lot of bike lanes in TaiChung, just no information about them.
A lot of duck farms were near the shore. Lot of quacking.

Soon to be mosquito (wasting taxpayer’s money) building…
Dammit! Can’t cross!
At DaAn Beach Park (大安濱海公園), the wind and sand was so strong that I was forced to find a detour to avoid the sand getting into my eyes!
Here the sands were blew onto the road by the strong wind!
The end of our shore ride.
Into DaJia Town Center
After reaching the northern shore of DaJia, we began heading into the town center to visit the famous DaJia MaZu Temple (大甲鎮瀾宮).

We first visited the DaJia Temple collection museum (大甲鎮瀾宮文物館).
Then we headed towards the temple. Just like any other place in Taiwan, the area around the temple had lots of good food!
“Black cat betel nut store.”
Taiwanese BaWan (肉圓) store.
BaWan was a fried sweet potato dough with meat & vegetable inside, outside with sweet and soy sauce. Just one BaWan could sustain your ride a lot!
The famous DaJia MaZu Temple!
Other old stuff in DaJia.
Heading Back to HouLi
After DaJia, we were ready to head back to HouLi, crossing lots of rice fields.

GaoMei TaiChung Wetland Ride was a really nice ride. There was few traffic, a bit climb and the chance to ride in winds. Highly recommended for those who have strong wind riding experience.
