To get away from the coast takes a serious climb right off the bat, I don't have an altimeter on this bike computer so I'll guess 6 or 700 meters of elevation gain, then it's a roller coaster for the rest of the day.
About 10 kilometers from Pingling I see some monkeys hanging out in the trees by the side of the road. There are about 6 or 7 of them jumping between two trees. They must be Formosan rock macaques, I look it up to see that they are the only species of monkey living in Taiwan.
Back to Taipei before Typhoon Megi arrives, our third typhoon in 2 weeks. This one is really impressive. They cancel work and classes in Taipei.
