Two days ride around Xiakeng.

 

The weather was pretty cold at the beginning of the week. It became surprisingly warm for this weekend. We had the chance to ride with short and T-shirt end of November!

 

Once more, we left Shanghai on Friday evening. This time, we were only five foreigners coming from Belgium, England and France. We rent a Jin Bei and we drove to Xiakeng (south-west of Shanghai) during 4h30…

 

The night was pretty short. We were notably disturbed by the noise of the dogs in the burg all night and the early workers activities in the opposite building of our hotel.

Nevertheless we woke up with a full smile looking at the amazing weather we were having.

 

We started with a nice downhill along blackberry and tea bushes. Once at the river, it was so hot that Kéké couldn’t refrain from swimming a little bit!!!

Then we rode along the river and we did several very good loops we know in this area.

We had a lot of fun! Xiakeng is for sure the best riding area! There is no tarmac, just few concrete roads

And plenty of single tracks!!!

It is nice to ride along blackberry and tea bushes or rape fields. It changes a lot from Shanghai over activity!!!

 

We did about 47km on the Saturday. In the evening, we shared some Belgium beers and we had a nice rest as we were planning to wake up early on Sunday.

 

On the Sunday, we split into two groups. Kéké and Gueno focused on downhill doing some lifts with the Jin Bei. Stefaan, Ed and Mat decided to experience some trails on the south-east side. The GPS track attached to this report includes this new additional loop.

We all met in a small hotel in order to have some noodles before going back to Shanghai. It was nice to see that homeowner making our pasta live!!!

 

At the end of the weekend, we rode 76.9km with more than 2500m elevation.

Xiakeng is clearly for all of us the best riding area around Shanghai. Landscapes are amazing, there are more single tracks than you can ride, and you are so far away from any industrialization…

Except the driving disctance and the quality of the hotel, it’s always a pleasure to be back there!
