Upon hearing this name, you may chuckle a bit. This is because "嘉油" is a homonyn with "加油" (both are pronounced "jia you"). Jia You Cycleway utilized and was built from 中油 (zhong you, or China National Petroleum Corporation)'s old railways. Possessing CNPC's history, and combined with Chiayi's scenic attractions, this is Chiayi' first bicycle lane. It has such a witty name too. This cycleway separates from the original railway into two lanes, and spans a total of 3 kilometers. Along the way, there are rest stops, as well as a lotus pond, and other landscape scenes. Starting out from the CNPC area, the terminal stop is the Tropic of Cancer's astronomy plaza. It passes through the urban areas of Chiayi City, in addition to Chiayi County's Shuishang Township. It connects both cityscape with the rural countryside. The scenery as you travel along is full of blue skies, green areas, and whenever you come across an area that you like, you can always stop to admire it. After you finish cycling, it's reccomended that you eat some authentic turkey rice from one of the nearby shops or reward yourself with a nice cup of coffee. Both are great options for your lesiure. However, keep in mind that the cycleway possesses very few shade, so it's best to be prepared with sunscreen when cycling and remember to drink water often!
