cycling tibet & northwestern china

Hey all,

Almost two years ago - as someone who didn't own a bike and who had never been on a bike tour - I started reading this forum because I was obsessed with the idea of cycling the Silk Road someday, and I figured this was a good place to start learning how to transform the dream into a reality. I'm writing this now from an internet cafe in Tibet - I've been biking around western China for almost three months now, and just in case anyone is interested, I wanted to post the link to my online journal:

http://cyclingsilk.blogspot.com

Also, the website for the trip is http://www.cyclingsilk.com.

Thanks all for the inspiration and education!

cheers,
Kate

Would it be insanely stupid to do a trip like this on a Fuji touring bike with 700c wheels??
