“I’m touched by the community along the ride. People are encouraged to be themselves and have fun. We’re a diverse group...a mix of LGBT people, allies, local Taiwanese, and foreign residents. The cycling distance is a challenge, but the energy of the group pushes you.”
"As a straight person, I wanted to join this ride because I'm cycling for love. I feel like no matter who you are, you should be accepted for who you are. I support humanity. I support love."
"This event is not just about riding a bike. It's also about lifting up Asia. I hope Taiwan can use its standing to help other LGBT communities in Asia."
“We’re so happy to support the growth of ASIA Rainbow Ride in Taiwan. I know that the international LGBT community will love to join in this yearly event once world travel is possible again. Events like these bring our world together and promote the love and light of our community.”
The Asia Rainbow Ride community gets together year round. Join us for spin classes and riverside bike rides throughout the year. We always end with a meal to socialize and meet new friends.
