Tanggula Mountain Battle Post No.1 Road Worker Station (5000m) to Amdo (4800m) is a total distance of 78KM climb via TuoJuLa pass (5170m). After that, you are embracing a gentle descending all the way to Amdo.

Snowstorm has become the theme for the past few days and it has became a  good friend of ours. We thought snowstorm is definitely better than trucks flying by you and towards you. To brace our snowstorm friend, lower your head, watch your front, hear the traffic, keep pedalling and most importantly, keep smiling (and panting)!

Today I would like to introduce you another teammate of mine, John from Ireland. He is the JOY of this trip. Humorous, considerate and a true inspiration in difficult times. Always at the back cheering for us occasionally. He will speed up to lead the team, at his own pace with his tag line “I am absorbing the beauty of the land”.

You will never imagine what he will do next, like stop by a nomad on a horse asking for an exchange of rides. Don't got surprise if you see him chasing you on horse back.

John is a hardcore mountaineer, before this trip he has scaled a mountain of more than 8000m in the Himalayan ranges.

Slowdown for handsome riders

全程78公里,20公里余处翻越海拔5170的妥巨拉山口,后一路下行。这几天的主题曲都是暴风雪,紧密接触后感情也愈加深厚,吐着白气,你也时常不忘喂食我一把雪,提醒着要多喝水了。不多说了吧,暴雪天,低头,看线,听车声。

今天要向各位介绍我们的另一位队友,此行的开心果及老顽童。John/约翰,来自爱尔兰,23岁接触登山运动迄今为止攀登过不少的险峰,在此行之前在喜马拉雅山脉成功登顶一座8000+米的山峰。困难中绝对的鼓舞者,喜欢在队伍最后面扫尾,偶尔停下车来跑路边和人交谈或者拦下骑马的牧民交换下坐骑各自溜一圈。
