Do try and get up to Tiger Leaping Gorge while you're there. I saw a lot of bike tourists up there (sadly I wasn't one of them).
going to Dali soon, I see that that is north of Dali. hat would make a first good short tour. (taking train from kunming, I've heard they take bicycles, but will check out how that works first.

regarding bikes at the gorge, understand there is hiking into the gorge there - is this a MTB trail ride? can a cyclocross bike make it?

also - the road from Lijian City - heard this is tight, twisty, narrow steep and busy. whats your opinion of biking on this road?
