Video #5 and a few China stats

Whilst hiding from the monsoon rain in Hanoi we put together a video from our 3 months in China. But first, to celebrate finishing our biggest country so far, here are a few China stats:

  • Distance cycled – 5,130km (Kazakh border to Vietnamese border)
  • Time taken – 90 days (58 spent cycling, 32 spent doing panda impressions)
  • Shortest Day – 17th May, 25km (ridiculous headwind)
  • Longest Day – 18th May, 196km (ridiculous tailwind)
  • Highest altitude – 3,150 metres above sea level
  • Lowest altitude – 155 metres below sea level
  • Best bit – crawling up the huge sand dunes at Dunhuang
  • Worst bit – battling the headwinds in the Gobi desert

  4. Hey! Thanks, guys! So inspiring. It is so good to see you two doing something you really wanted to and obviously enjoying the experience. Just so wonderful to get a feel for what you’re going through. Loved your comment, Beccy, when you said you were having a good day and nothing was going to get you down.

      Thank you, we are having such a great time – and loving the ease of cycling here compared to China (which I NEVER want to go back to!).

      Sue and Mark have just been to visit us, and it was wonderful seeing them and catching up over a few cocktails in the pool:-)
