In early April 2015, I set off on a 5000km bicycle ride across China. Having bought a Flying Pigeon from the factory in Tianjin and successfully cycled it 140km home to Beijing on a freezing cold December day, I had intended to make the much larger journey on that same bicycle.
I failed, and I failed hilariously early. But at least I failed publicly and you can now all enjoy that failure. I did, however, complete the trip and had an occasionally wonderful, sometimes awful, almost always interesting time doing so.
This website contains my original, unedited blog and photos from the journey. A more comprehensive ebook and paperback, documenting the journey, are available on Amazon.
