Yesterday we started our day in a very unknown town and Ho Young received his usual "wake up it's time to ride" reminder at 6:00am. We have now reached the province of Gangsu and we are gradually increasing our elevation. The views have been spectacular and we are surrounded by deep gorges along our ride to Jingchuan.
Along our ride yesterday we met many children who were eager to get playing and have fun. We taught a group of kids a game called "1000 up" and they asked us if we could come back to play again...
We did a lot of climbing yesterday and we finished our day with a 8 km descend into the town of Jingchuan. There was a speed trap at one of the steepest points of our ride and the "Korean Express" was cruising at 52 km/hr. It was a great day overall....nice people, great weather and fantastic scenery.
Today we are heading to Ping Liang and we are getting closer to Lanzhou. Shanghai seems very far away now, but the support we are receiving from our friends feels like you are right here with us...Bye for now.
