We are now in Lanzhou and we arrived yesterday afternoon. We are excited to hit the road every morning and we are feeling stronger than ever. Your support motivates us to cycle with passion and we thank you for following our journey across China thus far...This picture was taken on the Zhongshan bridge which crosses the second largest river in China known as the "Huang He".
Yesterday we encountered rain, but throughout our trip mother nature has been on our side. I forgot to bring my rain jacket so I purchased a stylish Chinese raincoat to stay dry...They actually work quite well and I find myself becoming more Chinese everyday.
Our first day of our trip some kids told me I look like a "laohu" which means tiger in Chinese....so I decided to introduce myself as "laohu" anytime I interact with the children. They think it's hilarious so the name will stay for a short while.
We have now cycled over 2300 km and we are now moving into the wild west! Cheers to the adventure that is still to come....Zaijian!
