The SACS Kaiping Bicycle Tour
On Your Bikes!
Friday, May 28, 2010 to Sunday, May 30, 2010
This SACS weekend tour will depart Shenzhen by motor coach and accompanying bike transport vehicles. On Friday night, we will stay in a downtown Kaiping hotel with a chance to head out for snacks when we arrive. Early Saturday morning, we will saddle up to begin our ride into the countryside. Along the way, we will visit several villages with clusters of charming “diaolous,” which are fanciful fortified defense towers built long ago to protect the peasant families from bandits and to show off the wealth of returning migrants. This unique area is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the only one in Guangdong Province.
After a pleasant day on bike we will relax in Hot Springs Resort. On Sunday, we will explore more of the countryside and visit the interesting riverside town of Chikan. A visit to Chikan film studios is a highlight.
Our bus will be available to carry luggage, and collect any tired riders. We will return to Shenzhen Sunday afternoon around 5pm.
A bike repairman will be on hand to help out with any flat tires or other equipment issues. Participants should be at least moderately fit and have their own bicycles. The tour includes SACS coordination, meals (B2, L2, D1), 2 Nights twin share Hotel, hotsprings, all entrance fees, English speaking tour guide, charter bus and bike truck.
