  • Nappa-Calistoga Ride

    The Nappa to Calistoga ride route as noted by my Garmin GPS: Note the location of our turn around is at a delicious restaurant in Calistoga called Sarafornia.  It’s on the main drag and hard to miss.  They’ll serve you a great deal of water for filling your bottles to get back on the road along with […]

  • November Ride = Exhaustion

    Today I finally ventured out into the cold of Colorado for my first bike ride since driving my little road racer 1,200 miles from California on the back of the Volvo. Dawning my Chinese riding pants and socks, I also made sure to put on my sleeved Mizell Racing jersey because of weather. I packed […]

  • Hong Kong

  • Xiamen

    Today’s ride was 50 km out of Chongwu along the coast. It was quiet, sunny, beautiful.. well, better than no coast, and a wonderful ride to ‘end’ with. Into Quanzhou we hopped a bus and went straight to Xiamen. In Xiamen we shipped our bikess, via rail to Shenzhen and called up our couch surfing […]

Very Tired. 2009-08-12 Fuzhou-Putian On MapMyRide.com Not a lot to write about today, except that today was the most draining of all the days for me yet. Sun-burnt, I woke up grumpy and then we left Fuzhou, rode through a congested and […]

    Cycling Photo Album

    The best I could put together with a bit of late night time in the WangBa.  I’ll have more photos in the album soon enough.  Unfortunately, the GPS logger is not willing to talk with a stranger, but I got my camera to connect and backed up photos onto a (now heavily virused) flash drive. […]
