Shangri-La is on a Bicycle

Cycling takes us to places we would never otherwise see.

There is really no better way to explore the world other than on a simple bicycle. In a car, you move too fast to be able to soak in your surroundings, get a whiff of the fragrant, flowering meadows and feel the connection of being so rooted to the earth, when your sensory is fully brimming from all the elements. On foot, you move too slow, incapable of exploring miles and miles of roads, countrysides and vistas in one go. On a bicycle, you simply are able to cover epic distances, fueled by mental strength and calories and only limited by your fitness ability. But once you’ve been on a bike and have been captivated by the perpetual sensations of freedom, you may just find yourself not being able to stop.

I just added a new item to my bucket list: cycling in China. I’ve always wanted to go back to the motherland and visit the Chinese countryside and I think the only way to make the most out of that experience is to travel by bicycle. Now all I need to do is befriend a Mandarin-speaking cyclist so he can be my tour guide. Any takers?
