On your Bikes! Kaiping Bicycle Trip
This SACS weekend tour will depart Shenzhen by motor coach and accompanying bike transport vehicle. Friday night we will stay in a simple 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. After a pleasant day on bike we will relax in Hot Springs Resort.
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 7pm.
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. Own bicycles can be taken or you have the opportunity to hire bicycles from our supplier (bike hire is not included in the tour price).
