Day 9 - Jiakou to Huangshan

Start: Jiakou (Zhejiang province)

End: Huangshan City (aka Tunxi) - Anhui province

Distance: 110km

Time: 6'33"

Avg: 16.8 k/h

Max: 49 k/h

Total: 568 km

Roadkill: Bats, snakes, praying mantises, mountains (blasted out of existence to make way for expressway)

Proper hilly day. Uphill all morning up to the pass marking the border between Zhejiang and Anhui. Downhill most of the afternoon. Wonderful riding - hardly any traffic all day on a decent road winding through small villages.

Light drizzle much of the day - trying to blow it towards to the Oval in London: seems like England could do with a spot of rain in the final Ashes test. Flintoff has just LBW'd Hayden though.
