Kenting 120Km By Bike

Date: 6 Jun 2009
Biking Distance: 120Km

Together with my kids and partner we joined our friends AK, Mr Ong, Ginson and the kids from Koahsiung on their graduation ride from Kaohsiung to Kenting.

It has been a while since my kids have cycled with me and this was their first long distance ride. My intention was to ride to Kenting and camp there for few days. Ak and Mr Ong cycled with us for the next 50Km till Fangliao, had lunch there before they turned back to Kaohsiung. Thank you Mr Ong for giving a lunch treat. 

We arrived Cheateu Beach Resort rather late around 630pm and had used their facility for free only if we rode 100km or more. We later discovered that they had stopped the offer since last month but they allowed us to use it as we were not aware the promotion had ended. 

The next 2 days we rode around Kenting visiting a few campsites and enjoy the beautiful sunshine and food.

The first day when we arrived, we did not camp as it was too late so we stayed in one of the Homestay. It was the second day we rode to Dayuanshan and camped there. After the camping trip we took a bus back to Kaohsiung. We had to pay extra for the bikes (half the fare) as I did not realise if we had bike bags, it will be for free. I should have thought quicker and got some trash bags, duct tape from 7-11.

Overall the ride was tiring under hot Summer sun but was rewarding, a cold dip in Cheateu Beach Resort and a tranquil camping trip.

Not many photos were taken as I was video recording the whole trip. See YouTube link below
