Serk Cycling Beijing
We've already explored most of Beijing's best areas for riding so it's time for a new adventure over the border in Hebei. The sublime May weather and extended holiday period are perfect excuses for 2 days of riding. We will stay overnight on Sunday at a nice resort in the Xianjugu Nature area close to the Hebei border.
Sunday's ride will be a loop around a spectacular canyon in Hebei close to Wulingshan. There are some small sections of road that are a bit rough followed by long stretches of good quality concrete roads. Bring extra tubes as the Hebei roads aren't as good as the ones we are spoilt with in Beijing. The roads are totally rideable and worth it for the views !
Monday's ride will all be on the good roads of Miyun. We will do a series of loops north of our usual Miyun reservoir circuit.

05.00 Meet at Serk and drive 2.5 hours to start point in Hebei
