What we're about

This is an offshoot of the Facebook group used to organise events around Taipei and Taiwan. Unlike what our name says, and unlike other groups, we do a bit of everything (hiking, biking, river tracing, snorkeling, paragliding...and some of our events may combine a meal along the way).

We're also more on the laid-back side.

Attending our events means that you have read, understood, and accepted our event rules: https://www.facebook.com/notes/hiking-and-r... (https://www.facebook.com/notes/hiking-and-riding-in-taipei/event-rules/10150270149591438)

We only use this meetup group to organise our events. Everything else happens on our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/44517786437... (https://www.facebook.com/groups/44517786437/)
