Last week’s ride
Posted on April 29 2014
Last week we rode north, up along Jiangsu Lu, past the Metro and over the creek. Well, half of the pack didn’t actually go over the creek and we split into two huge groups riding their own route.
For some, it was an exploration of Shanghai’s North, tracking under the elevated highways right out to the middle ring road. For others it was a dash west, to orbit around Hongqiao Airport.
Both routes were a celebration of Shanghai’s smooth flatness. Huge roads built for huge transport, muted down after the daytime and primed for a few hundred wheels to ride the night.
Converging back near Factory Five, we headed to the nearby C-Store for a drink and work out which route was better. Here’s the winner.
