Cycling The Silk Road In China – The Western point where the Great Wall ends into the Gobi Desert
Today was a great cycling day.
We cycled from Zhangye 65 KM towards Jiayuguan.
We cycled along farm land growing mostly corn, and stalls selling red dates.
It was a great day for cycling.
The weather was warm, with only a light wind and the roads were not very busy.
We had a bit of a mountain biking action, where the paved road was torn for construction.
Tonight we sleep in a lovely modern room in hotel Jiayuguan.
Tomorrow, we will see the Great Wall of China.
Jiayuguan is the western point in which the Great Wall had ended.
In old times, beyond this point, there was a gate, and if you passed through it, you would be out of China and into the Gobi Desert.
I am wearing a comfortable bathrobe in bed now, tired and happy as can be.
