Start: Xiangtan town, Hunan province
End: Shaoshan village, Hunan province
Distance: 96km
Time: 6'33"
Avg: 14.7 k/h
Max: 40.5 k/h
Total: 1518 km
Total riding days: 16
Roadkill: my sense of direction.
Riding hours: 0830 - 1730

Lost all day.

I think I found all of the roads in Hunan that aren't on my map, and none of the ones that are. Finally found myself in Shaoshan, after going round in several spiralling circles. This little village was once home to Mr and Mrs Mao, whose son, Zedong, went on to cause quite a bit of trouble.
