Mountain biking in Guilin, South China

Guilin is definitely a paradise for mountain biking.

Nice scenery! Those look like dirt roads, which are fun for exploring... but are there any technical singletrack trails in the area?

There are singletrack trails in the rice fields, or by the stream/ditch, and along the hill foot, depending on which routes you go. Please see more photos.

Brings back memories of traveling through Yangshuo, just up/down river from Guilin in 1985! Except back then, all I had to ride were the 3-speed Pigeons that you rent from hotels and restaurants. You could ride as far as the edge of the crags, and if you looked really hard, sometimes you could find a trail to the top. The best thing about exploring on a bike is that it’s easy to double back. No GPS, barely any maps, just the road and the sun in the horizon. Thanks for sharing!

Hi, Kanegon, you were here in 1985! that is a bit long time ago. I am afraid that the Pigeon bikes don't exist here anymore. You can find Giant, Merida or other brands instead. The landscape is still beautiful as before...
