overview

This fabulous nine day biking adventure takes us along winding, hilly roads with the Great Wall creating an incredible backdrop, snaking its way up steep mountains, along vertiginous peaks and down into deep valleys, as far as the eye can see. We ride towards the valley of Mount Heavenly Longevity, pass the famous, awe-inspiring section of the Great Wall at Badaling and through stunning countryside and local villages where we get a glimpse into typical rural life in northern China. A fitting end to an incredible cycling adventure, we spend a day exploring Beijing’s famous sights and enjoy a classic Chinese dinner.

The adventure begins as soon as you sign up; you will receive a challenge pack in the post, as well as information about our pre-challenge briefings in the UK. Here you can meet our leaders, members of your group and other like-minded people taking part in one of our challenges around the world!
