location

Yanqing

With the new freeway open towards the Beijing Winter Olympics site the North West corner of Beijing around Yanqing is a little more accessible.

As a result we are testing out a new route on the Yanqing / Hebei border. This week we'll have an optional all-road route which features an equal mix between tarmac and gravel. If you are looking to spice up your Saturday ride this route should be perfect. You'll need at least 30C tyres but would be best off with 35-40C. If you don't have a bike we have 2 Serk Adventure bikes for rent. You also need navigation as its an adventurous route through back roads and concrete sections that will be difficult to navigate without a device.

For the pure roadies the A route is very scenic and quite long. The ride is a little longer than usual and a loop. B and C are also completely new routes which dip into Hebei on concrete roads. Make sure you bring some extra tubes as parts of these roads are a bit rough.
