Kaohsiung,Taiwan – Making tracks

Kaohsiung, the southern metropolis in Taiwan has more than 250 kilometres of cycling tracks. Around the city, generally near the metro stations, public bicycles queued to be hired.

I rented a bike, and rode along the main track which runs along side the Love river into the heart of Kaohshing. And it was cheap, 20 NT dollars per hour, and when you’re done, you can drop your bike to any rental stand.

I have seen similar arrangement in Guangzhou, public rentals encourage cycling without the need to worry about ownership, storage, etc.
