We start our challenge by cycling 20km from our hotel to the Great Wall at Mutianyu. The original Wall was built over 2,000 years ago and at one point stretched over 6,000km. Today, it still is one of the wonders of the world.
After lunch, we take a quiet road through some typical Chinese countryside. We enter a valley between two mountain ranges, providing a wonderful panoramic view. We continue past villages and fields filled with crops. Finally, we cycle alongside a narrow river towards our overnight hotel on the edge of the Ming Tombs.
Another great Mencap experience — challenging rides, great organisation, excellent social evenings!

Day 4: Ming Tombs — Longquin Gorge — Hot Springs: 85km
First a short visit to one of the Ming Tombs. There are some 13 tombs in this area built by the emperors of China between the 14th and 16th centuries. We cycle through orchards and then on to some of the larger villages. We climb two tough hills and marvel at the glorious scenery before descending into a valley, passing small ponds, several villages and vast areas of cultivated land. We glimpse the Great Wall from a distance.
Cycling downhill, the scenery is breathtaking. We continue on flat terrain and cross a dam, surrounded by willow trees and a water theme park. We continue towards Longquin Gorge before reaching our overnight stop at The Badaling Hot Spring Hotel.

Day 5: Badaling Great Wall — Mentougou: 83km
Today, we cycle on minor roads with little traffic and bike lanes on both sides of the route. We pass the entrance of Kangxi Grass-Land and stop for a short visit at a quieter area of the Wall just beyond Badaling. We continue on a minor road until we reach the town of Nankou. From there we head towards Minghui, cycling in the open countryside where the terrain is quite flat and the roads are quiet. We stay overnight at the Dragon Spring Hotel in Mentougou.

Day 6: Mentougou — Shidu: 100km
This is our longest day’s cycling. We start riding on flat terrain through a number of typical Chinese towns. Once in the countryside, the views change dramatically. We ascend a fairly steep hill surrounded by cultivated land and thickly wooded areas — the scenery is beautiful.
We ride through a mountain tunnel with sheer cliffs on either side, pass a number of limestone workshops and continue towards Fungshanami. The terrain becomes more undulating as we near the Shidu region. We cycle along a narrow road in a most wonderful gorge with cliffs on either side. This takes us across the Juma River several times before we arrive at our overnight accommodation.

We rejoin our bikes for the last day of cycling at a clearing in the forest at Fenshan. After around 22km we reach Marco Polo Bridge where we assemble as a group for the last leg to Beijing. The bridge was built in 1192, is 260m long and made of grey marble.
We set off into the metropolis of Beijing along a bike-only lane beside the express road. We then slowly make our way past wide boulevards, skyscrapers, and some beautiful old buildings. We continue onto Changan Boulevard past a number of large office buildings, hotels, China’s government house and the edge of the Forbidden City. Finally, we turn into Tiananmen Square, the largest square in the world where we will stop to soak up the atmosphere. From there it is 4km to a learning disability school where we stop for a visit and lunch. Afterwards it is just another 3km to our hotel and the finishing line.
