Cycling Across China

Has anyone traveled or interested in travelling across or in some part of China, rather than Vietnam or Thailand for example? I live in China and know there are many beautiful rides and good roads to travel on in the South

Here are 16 links to information about bike touring in China.

Not all of them will be of interest to you but a few offer information on routes or companies that provide supported tours.

I dunno man, I worry about getting run over by Chinese drivers. I've been to SZ / GZ / Beijing enough times to convince me not to try that.

Yeah the driving here is pretty interesting to say the least.. Did you come to SZ for travel or business?

I have visited a few cities in China last year and have biked in Nanjing.
If I had more time and money, I would like to go on a long bike trip there.
I might visit again next year to study in Nanjing University and visit some
cities I wasn't able to last year; Beijing, Xian, etc. I will be bringing a
folding bike in my luggage again

I worked - for almost a year and a half, I was either crossing the border daily or living out of a hotel in Shenzhen.
