The Taiwan KOM Challenge Tour - a once in a lifetime experience.

For die hard road cyclists there’s something alluring about the pain of climbing up into the mountains. The Grand Tours have popularized Europe’s highest roads, making them the bucket list of many riders, but there is another iconic climb that is quickly becoming the must do on riders bucket lists – the Taiwan KOM Challenge.

This 105 km course from sea level up to 3,275 m has all the elements needed to test rider and machine against the mountains - long, twisting ascents, thigh-numbing gradients and thinning air.

Vincenzo Nibali, the 2017 the winner of the Taiwan KOM Challenge, set a new record for the event with a time of 3:19:54. He was more than a minute ahead of Spain's Oscar Pujol and 2011 Tour de France winner Cadel Evans finished 10th. Britain's Emma Pooley won the women's race in 4:08:40. Nibali said he has “never ridden such a long and hard climb before in my entire life," after posing on the winner's podium.

You don’t have to be a pro to enjoy the pain and glory of an epic climb. Participate in the Taiwan KOM Challenge with All Things Ride and conquer this mountain.

Starting from Hualien’s Qixingtan, passing through the spectacular Taroko Gorge, then climbing to Taiwan’s highest passable road apex atop Route 14A to Wuling Pass. The route begins at sea level on the eastern coast then climbs up to 3275 metres. This 105 km route has tested even the world’s most elite riders.

There are only 600 slots available for this race. With our local ground handlers, we will register you for the race and give you sage advice for completing this challenge. We start with some warm up rides to acclimatize you to the time zone and the temperatures. We also introduce you to the last kms of the race by climbing them two days prior. Resting the day before the race we aid you with the registration so you can spend your time preparing for race day.
