"Riding from Kunming to Chengdu"

Extracts from the Diaries of Adele and David Arthur on their three-week bike trip.

"One Wednesday Morning"

Adele and David Arthur tell the story about a typical day cycling in Changsha. "Riding in China is always entertaining.

Adele and David Arthur tell the story of one of the more exotic and entertaining parts of their journeys in China. Stuck in a small town for the night during the Fire Dragon Dance...

"Taklamakan Desert by Rickshaw"

Travel writer Antonio Graceffo's amusing story of cycling the Silk Road across the Taklamakan Desert by rickshaw.

"Around Formosa by Bicycle"

Antonio Graceffo completed a solo bike tour of over 1,300 km around Taiwan. Along the way, he stopped to get to know the local people. He spent nights in churches, temples, police stations, and even spent a night with the aborigines, learning much about their culture.

His goal was to portray Taiwan as a travel destination, but also to dispel myths of the entire island being an industrial manufacturing plant. He was able to capture beautiful photographs of sunsets above lush, green tropical forests in mountains of Taiwan, matched only by the beauty of the golden sunrises, on the Pacific Ocean.

"Two Seconds at Moon Lake"

Antonio writes, "Here is another Taiwan bicycle adventure. But, I have to warn you, this one is basically an anti-travel story. It deals with the concept of "what happens to a travel writer who is sick of traveling?" It is pretty funny. There is only one photo, but that is part of the humor. You will understand when you read the piece."

Fiona Young's Bike Tour Pictorial Essay:

Including a visit to her Father's village during Spring Festival 2005

Fiona Yong - Arriving at her father's village with the family tree.

Hi Peter,

The trip was totally amazing and intense, particularly for the short period of time we were there. Would love to write something 'proper' for you still and can see that happening in about a month, but a brief run down for you via our pics...... (have been caught up in wedding prep since our return - we're getting married next month, but after that would like to write about our trip  to send out)

The world is our dancefloor now
Remind me how to dance again

Free to laugh and cry

I'll enjoy the still for a while
And lose myself in waves
And mountains and the sky"

Crossing China on One Wheel

Hi Peter,

I told you I would write a bit of a travelogue for you from my China unicycling trip. I got back in February but I've only just got round to finishing it. I was inspired by some of the stories in your travelogue which gave me the confidence to finally decide to go in the first place even if I had to ride alone (something which luckily I didn't have to do in the end). So I'd be happy to try to inspire some other people.
