First Annual Asia Rainbow Ride: October 24-25 2020

 

The ASIA Rainbow Ride will take place this October 24th and 25th, 2020 during Taiwan’s Pride month. The trip is a fully supported two-day one night cycling event through the northern coast of Taiwan from Fulong to Taipei. This is a ride, not a race. We will bicycle as a group at a leisurely pace with stops along the way.
