Day 208 - riding San Sa He to Zhong Qu

Start: San Sa He truck-stop, far north-western Sichuan, China
End: Zhong Qu, Sichuan, China
Distance: 89 km
Time: 6'07"
Avg: 14.4 k/h
Max: 37 k/h
Total: 10,018 km
Total riding days: 119
Riding hours: 1000 - 1730

I wake up, and it is snowing. It has been snowing all night.

The guy at the truck stop reckons I should wait a day - but the likelihood is that it will be snowing tomorrow too, only more so. And the room at the truck stop has a resident rat or two - I don't feel like staying.

I go.

There is another pass today, but a gentler one.

New technique for dealing with head-winds: ride backwards.
