Taiwan Review has an excellent article about the Never Stop Wuling Challenge. The whole thing is worth a read.
The Wuling Challenge is probably the one race that stands as the epitome of Taiwan's organized cycling culture. It is part Fausto and part Fondo, attracting weekend riders blasting nakashi music from their bike mounted stereo systems, as well as some of Taiwan's top talent... if only for bragging rights.
Despite Never Stop's experience in holding the Wuling event, last year was a bit of a disaster as traffic control went home with thousands of riders still hoping to summit.
