The multi-colored patriotic line is my route.
From Binzhou to Shouguang, Shandong, China.
I left at 8:20 am and arrived at 3:30 pm.
Today's Total Distance: 95 km
Trip Total Distance: 1,246 km
Look at that map route, looks as if I’m making a full circle.
Today was alright; albeit windy. The was actually a bike lane today separated from the lane so I felt comfortable enough to block out the car noise and listen to the old itouch. It’s a much better way to pass the time while riding. I desperately need some new music. You know it’s difficult to find new music while living here, but I have find ‘The Black Keys,’ and nothing sounds better right now.
I only have one more day left of flat, pancake-like roads before hitting the mountains. Although harder, mountains have to mean trees, and better scenery, so that’s something worth looking forward to.
Other than that, I’m trying to make up lost time and make sure I hit close to 100 kilometer every day, after all, it’s already been 3 weeks. You move pretty fast across a map when doing 100 km a day.
This one’s short. I’m extremely tired, and my legs have been getting tired too ever since taking the 3 days off. I think in the future I won't write everyday. It takes me almost an hour and a half to do one blog entry. I'll write less often but hopefully I'll have more to say and more pics have been taken.
