This year, the Tin Hau birthday (or Tin Hau Festival) was on 8 May 2018.

Easter Holiday Ride – Journey to Revitalisation

Revitalisation of historical buildings as a means of preserving cultural and historical heritage is getting more significant nowadays. By injecting new usages to these buildings, it is expected that its life activities can be sustained. Our second ride in Kaohsiung has been focused on one of the highly recognised revitalisation projects, the Pier 2 Art Center. We have also boarded the ferry at GuShan to the Cijin District (旗津半島)and have a wonderful sprint along the Cijin Cycling Promenade (旗津踩風大道).
