The two-day Baosang Guanshan bike tour follows the popular bike path around Guanshan Township (關山鎮) on the first day and follows Chihshang Township's (池上鄉) Brown Avenue on the second day. The three-day tour includes all the riding activities of the two-day tour, plus riding on the 21-kilometer Taitung City Loop Bike Lane (台東山海自行車道) on the final day.
