The Dongfeng Bicycle Green Way passes through the previous Dongshi Branch of Taiwan South-North Railway that connects Fengyuan and Dongshi and runs through Dongshi District, Shigang District and Fengyuan District. Thanks to the efforts of many people, the route was transformed into a bicycle lane in September, 1991 and has been renamed as the "Dongfeng Bicycle Green Way" after the gas-run vehicles ceased operating.

The Dongfeong Bicycle Green Way is a one-lane road that can be used by bicycles from both directions. Cyclists can enjoy the rolling hills, the changes in the people and in the landscape along the way. One can see the dominant culture of the Hakka ethnic group amidst vast verdant farmlands crisscrossed by foot paths. After the Green Way was opened to the public, a tourist center was established in 2003 to better cater for the needs of tourists. From where it is located on the Shihgang section, the center commands a panoramic view of the adjacent blue Daja River and serves as an ideal place for leisure and recreation activities on holidays. Nighttime sightseeing has become a new tourist option in October, 2003, when night lighting facilities were added to the entire section making it Taiwan's first night-time bicycle lane. In the future, the Green Way will extend beyond the Daja River Bridge up to the Tai-an Railway Cultural Park in Houli and connect to the Houli Horse Ranch, the Yuemei Sugar Factory and the Yamay Resort. The newest tourist route is soon to be opened.
