Hello from the Jing

It seems Bike Forum's Asian user base is a bit spread out. So far I haven't run into any China-based users, but if you're out there drop me a line!

So far I like it here. My job is keeping me real busy. However, it seems to be a good place. As I said on the other thread, I am having trouble finding some things.

I have been trying to keep a pretty detailed blog, with a lot of pictures. However, I am not clear if I am allowed to put a link to it here.

There is very little polution and the street crime seems to be nonexistant. I am considering staying a second year, after this contract ends.

Very little pollution, huh? Sounds intriguing. I don't think there's anything wrong with posting a link to your blog if it's relevant to the discussion, and sometimes even that doesn't seem to matter too much.

I am about to give up on bike touring in China this summer. The train policy is just too hard (I wanted to take the bike to an interesting city and start riding from there) in general bikes are not permitted on trains. I tried to send it as freight; but, quite simply, I was told, “No,” by the people in the freight office.

The Bus also did not work. There is no room on the new buses and they do not have roof racks.

As far as just going and riding, I am not where I want to start. Also there is the problem that in this Province sleeping outside is forbidden. If you are seen you will be picked up by the police and taken to a hotel, and the hotels that are licensed by the police to allow foreigners are very expensive. The is also the issue (and really, the bigger one) to get where I would be interested in going requires travel through closed areas; which are, as the name implies, closed; foreigners in those areas are subject to arrest and fines.

What I was told that it really comes down to is that bicycles are for poor people and China does not want a bunch of poor people coming to their country. If they are going to have tourists, they want rich tourists.

I am pretty bummed about this because I really did wat to do some bike touring this summer.

Hi guys! I'm from Zhejiang, which is near Shanghai.

Here is my bike website in English. www.biketour.cn

To Robert C, I think you should be able to travel with your bike on trains, buses. I've done that quite a lot. If you bike has quick release, just take off one wheel, and then you should be allowed to board the train with your bike. Most big buses have room to store luggages too.

If you couldn't camp in cities, you could try the youth hostels. They are relatively cheap and you could meet a lot of travelers.

a reply to Robert C
actually, poor people ride bicycle for life
we, most of the time, ride for fun.

people need to change their idea about bicycle and travelling.
i have been to different places from the south to the north of China. inevitably, i met people who did not quite understand this "tiresome" and "torturing" behavior. but, as long as you like it, who cares!
