Last Week’s Ride
Posted on May 30 2014
This week we were many. Hundreds of riders pouring through Shanghai like smooth butter. We rolled down to Xujiahui and alongside the elevated road south to the train station before turning north into Honqiao.
The roads are wide and smooth down there, perfect for a couple of bunch sprints whilst the pack stretched out to cover a block or two. Then we regrouped and cruised through japan-town before a loop of the Shanghai zoo.
Tuesday night business is brisk in the Family Mart we choose as a drinks stop every week and this one didn’t quite know what was going on. We try to hang at a different place each time to spread the night ride love!
Then we hooked the Hongqiao canals and slid east towards town and back to Factory Five. 32km in all and an awesome ride through West Shanghai.
