Does anyone have suggestions for easy to moderate routes cycling in
China for three to four weeks? I'm an experienced cyclist, 11 months
cycling in India and Southeast Asia, also five months cycling Europe/
Lapland to Tunisia. I'd like to go to China in fall 2009 or spring 2010, am
in initial stage of research, would like to go with group but not a formal
tour organization because they're too expensive. Would anyone be
interested in doing this with me?

I have done a bit of cycling in China, from Beijing south to just north of Wuhan. Main routes can be very badly polluted, much worse than anywhere in the USA. Smaller country lanes through fields of agriculture were obviously less crowded and cleaner. Major routes between big cities are not recommended, but it can be done. You begin clean in the morning. Your face, hands, and arms are black with airborn pollution at the end of the day, and you are beginning to feel the effects of carbon mnoxide poisoning. Choose your routes carefully.
