Dewey Hammond November 18, 2016 Taiwan Cycling in Taipei Dewey Hammond November 18, 2016 Taiwan Taipei is a great city for cycling, and there are some interesting waterbirds by the river. Tamsui River, Taipei, Taiwan. Tamsui f.k.a. Danshui. Apparently the river is polluted with waste from illegal industries and sewage. Yi-lan helped me get the bike because you need a local phone to register for rentals.
