XuChang to ZhengZhou - 107 kilometers ZhengZhou -- Thu, Jul 14, 2005 The wind was at our backs and we took advantage of that.
We ran into nine students biking from Wuhan to Xi'an (3 of which will probably join us after Xi'an to Urumqi). They were great characters -- they had flags, and just some great spirit. And pushed me to bike my ass off... It was a lot of fun, and they kept up pretty damn well. The hills were the only place they couldn't keep up -- oh I miss The Hills in Providence ;) Can't blame them, its pretty flat out here right now.
Had a great dinner with the crew at a XinJiang restaurant and a meeting with the president of the school we are meeting with tomorrow to go over the "event". They have a formal plan and have gotten a lot of press to attend. Pretty cool.
