Description

This ride is designed for those that want the complete Beijing cycling experience. A gorgeous ride, peaceful surroundings and small back road climbs that are almost completely devoid of traffic. To get out to Miyun requires an investment in time – around about two hours drive from the city each way.

The ride starts slowly climbing above the Baihe River. The road twists and turns as it hugs the side of the mountain. You travel through a series of short tunnels carved out of solid rock. As you exit each tunnel new vistas appear and you’ll notice the road continuing to snake up the mountain. Once you arrive at the top you’ll be tempted to stop the bike and capture the amazing views. After 18kms of rolling hills, we turn right up a short sharp climb on a back road before descending down to the Baihe river and riding along its banks. We end with a well-deserved downhill to your transport and cold drinks from the local shop. 

We pick you up at 5.30 from Hotel with either our rental bikes loaded or loading your own bikes (to avoid traffic going out of the city) 
Then we drive out of the city via S211 highway and arrive around 7.30 to start riding  
We will ride for 2-4 hours depending on the distance and route we finally settle on according to abilities  
We'll finish around 11.00 and then load the van 
Return to Hotel 13.00 - 13.30 (depending on traffic conditions) 

Included:  
Rental bike (top end SRAM Red Titanium bike with carbon wheels)  
Lunch snacks: we pick up some snack food from 7-11 and put in a cooler  
Hotel pick up and drop off (in our Mercedes Adventure Van) 
Ride leader (English and Chinese bilingual native)
