1h to 2h Rides around the village

Some shorter fun rides around the area. Still a lot of hills & an adventure! We suggest you cycle up to Santang, then down to Gaoshan and then head back through Sanyang stopping at the old street. Alternatively, head East at the main road and go to Xiaoxu and the villages off the main road.
