Back From Riding : Xin’anjiang Reservoir

Over the National Week holiday a few of us decided to get out of Shanghai and head for the mountains of Xin’anjiang Reservoir, a region about 100KM South West of Hangzhou. We covered something like 250KM over 3 days of cycling, swimming and camping. We packed light, each with a small bag and a sleeping bag / hammock combo, knowing we could find places to crash in the wilderness. Below are a selection of cell phone photos documenting our ride. For us it was easily one of the nicest places we’ve ridden in China and we will definitely be going back! Ride on.
