West Miaoli Shore Ride
Baishatun & Start of Wind Turbine Bike Path
Continuing our West Miaoli Shore Ride, near a small town called Baishatun (白沙屯) was a cool temple with a busy front street. It was also the beginning of a bike path that went through many wind turbines.

There was always a busy old street near a famous old temple.
More wind turbine.
Here the seawall bike path ended. The bike path continued on the road inside of the seawall.
The official “car free” bike path started here.

Although this is a bike path, cars ran freely on it.
At the northern tip of the bike path was a memorial for Mazu landing onto Taiwan, along with some non-maintained arts.

The abandoned feel was quite nice here.
Beginning Riding Inland
At this point in our West Miaoli Shore Ride we left the shore and began to ride inland. We first visited a vista point here called Haowangjiao (好望角), then we will head onto Miaoli’s country road.

A cool site showing some shell fossils.

Very cool wall decoration!
When the country road passed a small town XiHu (西湖), there was a giant Mazu statue here.

“Flying Dragon Bridge.”
The high rise road on the right was the National HighWay #3.
Surprisingly there was a bike path under the Highway!
Here we went onto Local #33, a very nice country road with almost no cars, and had many interesting Miaoli farmland views along the way.
Traditional Hakka round rice storage house.
A bit creepy farmer statue.
Traditional Sanheyuan residence.
Oops. Better leave now…
Local cool school.
… with elephant slider!
To add more mileage, we took another detour on local #34 into the hilly area and use Country #128 back.

TongLuo & Back
Finally in our West Miaoli Shore Ride we arrived at the last major town in our route TongLuo. From here we climbed up a hilly road to see a skywalk structure, then head back.
