An update from SuperCylingMan on his "7 Continents World Cycle"
I saw and walked along the Great Wall of China for the first time... then had a had a ridiculous amount of fun riding for a month with the unicyclist Ed Pratt...
... got seriously close to Tibet...
... passing a landmark of cycling 25,000 kilometres...
... and boy, this last province that I’ve been in - Yunnan province - has been utterly spectacular with so many beautiful places to see. Even the rice fields are stunning!
One family even let me stay and enjoy Chinese New Year with them...
Can you imagine inviting a complete stranger into your house for a special family occasion like that, say, for Christmas dinner? Unbelievable hospitality.
So, thanks for all the memories, China and “farewell” or rather “see you again soon” as I’ll be coming back to cycle across eastern China to Beijing later in the year (more details below).
And hello South East Asia… here I come!
Stay super out there everyone… and remember #WeCanAllBeHeroes!
