Around Baguashan

Being a little tired of going up Bagua Mountain I thought I would go around it.  Last Sunday’s route followed Provincial HWY 14 to Changhua City followed by Provincial HWY 1 to Yuanlin.  After that I rode along County Road 141 to Ershui and 152 to Mingjian before taking Provincial HWY 3 back home.  With the exception of a short climb on the 152, the route is almost completely flat.  A map of the route is available on Bikemap.net.  Here’s a small collection of photographs from the ride:
