The China Odyssey

Spring was sprung a couple of days ago and we’ve back into the low 20’s with a bit of rain around which is usual for October when one isn’t having a drought.

We start our trip at Guangzhou just across the border from Hong Kong and the temperatures there are still hovering around the high 20’s which is a tad too uncomfortable for bike riding.  Temperatures have been dropping down from the mid 30’s and places further north on our route are in the low 20’s so that’s more my style.  The Red Dragon says the weather is delightfully autumn in Wuhu so it should cool as we go further north.

We fly out early Friday morning and stop off in Hong Kong for 3 days and take a short flight to Guangzhou on Monday morning and start 10 days of riding on Tuesday followed by 10 days of sightseeing and we’ll be back home on 29 October.

MM is going to hijack the blog in the interim and will post my emails in case it gets too difficult to blog out of China so stay tuned.

    This sounds like a great adventure. Will you be able to meet up with the red dragon? I’ll be checking in to your blog to find out what trouble you’re getting into while you’re gallivanting around China, and I know there will definitely be some sort of trouble!!
    Meanwhile, I’m desperately looking for a house, mine is sold and I have to be out by the end of November and I’m currently homeless. EEEEK!

    We don’t get into trouble when we travel! We won’t be meeting the Red Dragon this time but maybe later on.

    We moved in 1986 to this current house from a place around the corner. Sold our old house on the Monday, went looking for a new one that afternoon and had signed the papers for this house on the Friday. Both settlements were on the same day so just moved from one to the other. There must be plenty of comfortable bridges along the 407/401 you could sleep under. 😀 I’m sure your kiddies will look after you.
