The multi-colored patriotic line is my route.
From Qinhuangdao to Luanxian, Hebei, China.
I left at 8:30 am and arrived at 3 pm.
Today's Total Distance: 94 km
Trip Total Distance: 783 km
I spent a day in Qinhuangdao and visited The Dragon Head section of The Great Wall. I have to say that I enjoyed the intensely more touristy section at Badaling, Bejing. Anyways, the rest of the day, I washed most of my clothes, and gave my bike a bath. I also changed the tube in the front wheel because I was becoming too worried that it was going to go flat at any minute from the quick job the Chinese guy did a few days ago. After changing the tube and pumping up both tires, I’ve concluded there’s something wrong with my bike pump, and I need to buy a new one. I can only get my tires up to 25 psi.

Today’s weather was less than desirable, like always, and of course the day wouldn’t be complete without some rain, but I met my distance goal so I’m happy about that. In fact, today’s ride was incredibly easy and I even thought about continuing to the next city, but when I saw that 50 km sign, I decided enough is enough. I feel good, and my endurance is much better than a week ago. I was flying down the road the whole day.
I’m planning a big day tomorrow and tomorrow is looking good. I’m going to rip it up and should finish the day and week 2 with a new personal best!
Much of the highway was under construction. This part lasted almost 10 km.
