Starting time is 4:30am on June 15th, 2010. Participants can choose to start from either Hangzhou or Shaoxing. The two groups will meet at Diankou town, our first feed point, at around 6am. The peleton will then roll on to Zhuji. Shortly after that, the main challenge of the day (which is climbing the famous Kuaiji Mountain (Kuaiji Shan会稽山)) will be enjoyed by the bikers. Following that is a quite scenic and enjoyable downhill cruise of around 20 kilometers. At the end of the downhill ride is the birth place of Yue Opera (Yue Ju越剧), one of the most popular local operas in China. The rest of the route is basically flat.
Over 90% of the ride will be quite relaxed. This is a GREAT opportunity for endurance sports fans to see the most beautiful part of rural Zhejiang.
