Windy, but COOL! Got through the day on less than 3 litres of water. Even rained a bit. Had to ride a G-road (national trunk route) for 25km or so, but then back onto small hill roads. Getting through Nanchang this morning took a couple of hours - big city. Seriously windy crossing the huge bridge over the river at Nanchang - almost had to choose between being blown over the railings into the river, or being blown under a truck. Thereafter, the wind kept more or less where it belongs - on my tail.
