Pictures from Eastern China

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

Eastern China is one of the most population dense regions of the world (see our route and click on “see population density” above the map). When we planned our route, we didn’t expect to find any good biking riding to Beijing, or between Beijing and Shanghai. We were wrong. While the pollution was horrible in some places, we were pleasantly surprised by many of the country roads (thank you Google walking directions) and we enjoyed riding through the countryside during the harvest months of October and November. Most cities were also relatively easy to bike across due to dedicated lanes for bikes (or, more often, electric scooters).

We took a lot of pictures — here are links to the individual albums:

Hitchbiking to Baotou

Beijing to Shanghai

And here are some of our favorite photos from these albums:

Pictures from Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan

Monday, September 15th, 2014

The past month of riding has been the most spectacular of the trip: numerous mountains rising more than 6,000 meters (20,000ft), lonely dirt roads, yurt camps, mountain rivers, deep canyons, and high passes. We took a lot of pictures.

Rather than post them all here, I’m only posting the very best pictures below, and then including links to albums with more pictures.
