Yingxiu to Dengsheng, 1900m elevation gained in 79km. Seems that large amount of our sweat is destined to be left in this valley. The first 20km was one of the worst bumpy roads in western Sichuan. My hands literally had bruise after battling with this road surface.
BamAbu was covered with dust like a young fella who haven't shaved for years. Lighter frame and 700c wheel definitely helped with my speed when it was bouncing on this kind of road condition. Thank BamAbu that my hands wasn't more swollen if the frame itself wasn't acting like a shock absorber. I started to love BamAbu even more. The beauty not only lies on its natural material, but also in its natural suspension which does not compromise on rigidity.
From this session onwards, we will be sharing some travel tips on and off! Be savvy to check on the net for some of the cities we biked through!
Dengsheng Foresty Bureau is now open their dorm for traveller. (We were planning to camp today.)
