China, Cycling The World 17th-November-2012

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is in China, cycling around the world on Saturday, 17th-November-2012. Shijiazhuang to Baoding. 91 miles. Extremely flat ride today, don’t think I came across one hill!

Met a cycling club as I was riding along, stopped and had the normal no conversation with them, which is always fun. And had loads of photos taken with them. They also gave me a flag with their club name on it.

Thought I was back in Kazakhstan a couple of times today. The road got really bad! First time in China, so I can’t complain.

The poor waitress tonight, first she just kept filling my glass and didn’t stop until somebody pointed it out that it was overflowing. Then, when she put the bottle down, she missed the table, and it fell onto the floor and shattered. She then put her foot on it and that went straight through! No harm was done to her. The head waitress said that she was just over-excited to see me!?!

Please Donate

Don’t forget the main reason behind my ride. I want to raise as much money for cancer research charities as possible. After my wife, Josie, died of breast cancer in 2007, aged only 42. Even the smallest donation helps. You can donate to Cancer Research UK or the Australian National Breast Cancer Foundation. Click on either one to donate. Every little bit helps to rid the world of this cruel disease.

Follow me on social media: Facebook, X, Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest. I’m also on Flickr, where my photos are released first at the end of each country I’ve just cycled through.

You can also follow my progress and see where I stop each night by visiting the Where’s Garry web page; there, you’ll find a map of the route I’ve taken so far.
