Shuanwan Bikeway

The North Coast and Guanyinshan National Scenic Area Administration is devoted to promoting environment protection and low-carbon bicycle travel. Other than advertising bicycle travel and well-planned bicycle paths, relevant events are held annually to encourage visitors to ride bikes. The administration team makes sure that the scenic area is bicycle-friendly and all visitor centers provide services to cyclists. Various bicycle stations can also be found along the paths. All these make bicycle travel at the North Coast much more enjoyable and convenient.

5. Bicycle tips

Personal equipment:

  • Helmets

    70% of the cyclists suffer from head injuries in roadside accidents. A comfortable helmet of the right size is immensely helpful to ensuring a cyclist’s safety.

  • Goggles

    Goggles can keep winds, sunshine, and small things away from the eyes. Some lenses are replaceable and even reduce glares. This makes cycling safer at night.

  • The head scarf

    A seamless “magical” head scarf is useful for doing all sorts of outdoor sports. In terms of cycling, it helps to absorb sweat and keeps dust and sunshine away. What a multi-functional tool!

  • Oversleeves

    Oversleeves are great for avoiding suntan. For cyclists who like to feel relaxed when taking a rest, oversleeves are much more flexible than long-sleeved shirts.

  • Gloves

    Cycling gloves usually contain shock-absorbing materials in the palms, and this helps to lessen fatigue on the road. This type of gloves are also sweat-absorbing - this enables cyclists to grasp bicycle handles well.

  • Water bottles

    Cyclists should drink enough water to avoid dehydration. Bring water along to drink it on the go.

  • Shoes

    Cycling shoes make cycling easier. The special buckles on the soles can fix the shoes tightly to paddles and improve cycling efficacy. To avoid shoestrings from getting entangled with bicycle chains, there are no shoestrings.

  • Pants

    Cycling pants are equipped with special paddings to make cycling more comfortable. Professional cycling pants are usually well-fit and they help to support muscles and reduce frictions.

  • Drywear

    Drywear helps to regulate body temperature, making cycling more at ease. Professional, well-cut cycling shirts can reduce frictions, too.

Bicycle components:

Check carefully before departure to see if any components are loose or make strange sounds. Make sure your bag is tightly attached to the bicycle. Enjoy a safe and happy trip.

  • The saddle

    Turn your saddle right-left and up-down to see whether it is tight, including the seat and the collar. Make sure the cable does not fall out.

  • The bottle rack

    Bring some water so that you can drink it when thirsty.

  • Handles

    Fix the front wheels and turn the handles. Make sure the front posts aren’t loose.

  • The gears

    Make sure the front and back gears work well.

  • Brake cables

    Press the brake to see if it works well. Let the wheels churn to make sure the brakes do not get stuck against the wheels. (If the gap is less than 1mm, get new brakes.)

  • Front light

    The light can mostly be attached to the handles. It lightens up the road ahead and gives warning signals. Make the front light works well not matter if the trip takes place in the day or at night, just to stay safe.

  • Quick release

    Check the quick release with one thumb to make sure it is tight.

  • Tire pressure

    Press the tires to see if they are packed with air. Look for cuts on the surface. Broken tires must be replaced before hitting the road.

  • Back light

    Back light is usually installed against seat tubes or seat stays for sending signals. A bike should always be equipped with back light (just like front light) no matter if the cycling takes place in the day or at night.

Basic Repair Kits:

  • The pump:

    There are portable pumps for road trips. Depending on one’s itinerary, a portable pump might be useful. Choose the right valve that fits your bike, such as a Schrader or a Presta valve.

  • The tool kit:

    Portable tools such as a Swiss knife are enough for simple repairs on the road. A tool kit can already fix most of the problems.

  • The tire lever:

    You may use a tire lever to remove the tire from its frame or the other way round. It is a must-have when fixing tire problems.

  • Patches:

    The patches are used for rubber repairs. Attach them to a broken tire with glue or a tape.

  • The stopwatch:

    It helps a cyclist to check speed, distance, and time. A high-tech stopwatch can be installed with a GPS chip for positioning, tracking and documentation purposes.
