"The race route is nothing but challenging. The neutral zone for the first 18km is flat, then a left turn into famous Taroko Gorge. For the non-climber, the next 20km will be the
most amazing cycling you will ever do. EVER!".....For the climbers, the last 10km are super challenging. The air is thinning, you face gradients regularly ranging from 10-12%, with one hitting
27.3%. And with a few kilometers to go you can see the top and the final wall to climb over. Reach the summit and the ride down the other side is just as amazing!"
