My Nujiang cycling trip blog

Rather than re-post all my blog entries about the 2 week trip I will direct you to the original account at Crazy Guy on a Bike site.

Some film camera photos from the Nujiang

I took my Leica M2 with me at Christmas and took a few photos with the 50mm Summicron and a 28mm Canon lens.

A wonderful trip to the Nujiang - and Laomudeng (老姆登)

Just spent a marvellous 10 days cycling from the Tibet border north of Bingzhongluo to Liuku - about 300 km. Not ideal conditions for a small for a small folding bike - the 228 highway is being upgraded to make access better for tourists. But the scenery and the people were both fantastic. Going by bike allows you to see & experience so much more than being confined on a bone-rattling bus. The highlight for me was 'discovering' the mountain top village of Laomudeng, neat Fugong. A beautiful Christian church set up by the local Nu people. Spent New Year there. Bliss.
