*Change of plans, we will be staying at the Kylie Best Western – for 385 per room per night *
Thanks to our friend Charles, we’ve worked out a pretty good deal on accommodations for anyone wanting to hit up the Ningbo Alleycat this weekend. We’ve booked a bunch of rooms at the Portman Plaza (yeah, 4 star baller status!) for just 199 per person, per night. That’s 398RMB a room, two people per room. The Portman Plaza is right downtown, and basically in the center of everything going on Friday and Saturday night – perfect. They will also help store bikes indoors!
We’ve got 10 rooms booked for now, and if we need to reserve a few more we can do that too. Please send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll put your name on the list.
In terms of getting there, taking a bus is the easiest. Buses leave every 20 minutes from the Shanghai South Long Distance Bus Station (beside the South Railway Station), and cost something like 90RMB one way. The drive is between 2.5 – 3 hours, and you can easily take your bike on the bus – just whip off the front wheel, your pedals, and pack it in the under cargo storage.
I will personally be heading out early Friday morning, so if anyone wants to join then please let me know!
See you all this weekend, Ningbo style!
