the exercise in Shanghai.


the endpoint of the exercise: Sanjia seaport in the outskirt of Shanghai
the seaport is located by the mouth of Yantze River.







it looks like a military facility.


a waterbottle .it is a gift of the rider's firend.


a village road.


a viilage


the dog might be very angery with the invasion of the rider.

the Journey on June 1st,2009.
From Shanghai to Jiashan county ,Zhejiang province.
the journey route.


the highway to Jiashan county


the modern greenhouses beside the highway. it is still in the outskirt of Shanghai


the highway is very empty,because most vehicles prefer a expressway nearby.
the expressway net is very dense in coastal China.


there were many flowers beside the highway


a villlage apeared beside the highway. it is still located in the outskirt of Shanghai


farmland beside the highway.... it gives you attention that it is rural area.


then, the rider reached the border between Shanghai Metropolis and Zhejiang Province.

the sinalboard over the road says:" you are welcome to Zhejiang province"

on the night of June 1st, 2009, the rider entered Zhejiang Prvince and arrived at Jiashan Countytown.
Zhejiang province is as large as S.korea. its population is about 48 million,also as many as S.korea's.

Zhejiang province is one of richest provinces in CHina.
the per nominal GDP is 5000-6000 USD,about 1/3 of Taiwan and S.korea.
However, according to my experience, the real life quality of people in Zhejiang province is quite similar with the life quality in S.korea and Taiwan, if not better,because RMB is undervalued too much.

here is the location of Zhejiang province on maps



here is the location of Jiashan couty on map of Zhejiang province




Jiashan county has a population of about 0.7 million.
here are some pictures of Jiashan countytown I googled. the air there seems very polluted.
the countytown is a grade D city in china and about 100 KM away from SHanghai.

the frustrating Journey on June 2nd,2009

on that day, the journey was in deep trouble. the rider had to turned round and round between Jiashan countytown and Jiaxing city...
here is the journey route on that day..



on the morning, the rider left Jiashan countytown.

the rider still rode along National Highway 320. the endpoint of highway is a small city in Yunan province ,that borders Burma.


suddenly, one tyre of the bike got thrusted ..



the rider had to stop and repair it.



however, the rider failed and had to pull the skewed bike through 10-KM-long road to Jiaxing city
in jiaxing city, the rider found a bike-selling shop,and had the bike repaired.
the seller there is very young and very good at repairing such bikes.



after the bike had been repaired, the rider had lunch in the restaurant.he had a bowl of wonton there.



after the lunch, the rider left [bJiaxing city[/b] and went on his jouney in rainny.


however, after having ridden 10 KM long way,the ridder was frustrated to found that he left his waterbottle in the restaurant where he had lunch...
the waterbottle is a gift of his friend,so he had to returned to [bJiaxing city[/b] for the waterbottle in rainny.
To the rider's joy, the boss of the restaurant was very nice to keep the waterbottle for him....


after taking back the waterbottle, the rider felt very tired and decided to have a rest in Jiaxing City in the afternoon.
here is a ancient wall in Jiaxing city. the rider visited it in the afternoon. it seems that the city has some histroical heritages.
