Beautiful day riding on very quiet country roads (once I got off the G318) along the southern edge of Lake Taihu. Warm, sunny. Flat all day. Reached the edge of the mountains, so will be climbing tomorrow.

Passed near PingWang, then turned off onto small roads via Hengshan, Qidou.

Very friendly and clean zhaodaisuo (hostel) tonight, decent bed for 15 yuan.

  1. Hello Edward. I am sorry to bother you. Congratulations on your blogg!And on your whole trip. It is trully amazing.
    I'm writing you because my boyfriend Nicolas and his friend François are stuck right now at the border between Mongolia and China. The Chinese authority won't let them come to China with their bikes, even if they have visas. Do you have any piece of advice for them? How did you manage to get through the border with your bike?
    Here's my email:

    In advance, thanks, Cécile.
