Trucks are Flying

Trucks are Flying

Sandstorm

BuDongQuan to TuoTuoHe is a total of 248km followed by a night stay and a day rest. The day we departed from BuDongQuan towards TuoTuoHe, a sand storm with wind that can literally blow our riders off their bikes hit us good. In the meantime, trucks are flying past us on expressways put us in a really vulnerable position. For safety matters we decided to take a car to the nearest town for some rest after lost most of our energy fighting on No Man's Land these past few days. Some good hours of sleep as well as normal food will benefit us for the rest of the journey.

Continue from TuoTuoHe to YanShiPing is a 90 km distance ride with no big hills to climb, but typical rolling roads on this part of the plateau. With no winds this morning, we accomplished 55km within 3 hours. Shortly after our lunch picnic, strong headwinds are waiting for us. Headwinds, like gentle punches on your face, it doesn't hurt much but it can really make you breathe uncomfortably. No complaints, you gotta do what you have to do. Warm your legs up and guarantee a good night sleep tonight.

Road condition on G109 is not good, bumps and dents. BamAbu made it easier for me, lighter frame really benefit me on uphills.

不冻泉-沱沱河(248公里,留宿,休整)- 雁石坪(90公里,留宿),从不冻泉出来的第一天,沙尘暴天气和可以把骑手吹下车子的强风,不得不让队友们下车来推着前行,面对这两百多公里的行程和身边众多疾驰而过的卡车,在安全因素的考虑下迫使我们决定驱车前往最近的休整地点沱沱河,充足的睡眠和正常的餐食为我们后面的行程做好调整。

Beaten but not dead

 

今天到雁石坪的行程,相对来说较为轻松没有较高的垭口攀爬但依旧保有青藏线的传统起伏路面,无风早晨55公里的路段在3小时内就完成了,但简单的午餐过后逆风瞬间袭来,打在脸上都有些喘不过气来,被逆风玩弄久了反而开朗了,索性放下车子,摘下眼镜让你吹个够。

G109的路况不好,沥青路早以变形坑洼填补起来也是非常坎坎坷坷的,BamAbu面对这些路面依旧游刃有余,驾驭感还是很不错的。

He made my ride much and easier one

Travel Tips

There are quite a few trucks on G109. The road is also quite narrow whenever there are two truck going parallel. There is almost no space for bicycles, for safety matters best pull off to the side and let them pass. There's no reason to rush that few seconds.

小贴士

G109的货车虽然没有318的多,但数量也不少。路面较为狭窄两辆卡车错车的话基本没有自行车的空间,有那么几次教训后学乖了。面对错车情况宁愿停下来移到路边,咱们不要争那几秒。
