Tibet travel options

Travelling to Tibet, you can either choose to take an airplane or a board a train. But, tomorrow (3rd May 2016), Abu will head to his hometown, Lhasa, Tibet on a bamboo bike, hand-made by himself, "Simple Bikes". Setting out with him is a team of professional cyclists / adventurers from Ireland.

 坐飞机去过拉萨,坐火车去过拉萨,骑车去过拉萨,其实老家就是拉萨。这一次,就是明天,Abu要骑着自己亲手打造的竹子自行车「Simple Bikes」,出发,再一次踏上进藏之旅。

Bamboo Bike

"Travel" is the best way to test couples. This time, Abu will spend about 40-50 precious days with "Simple Bikes". From the plain to hills, and from hills to the high altitude mountains. Whether they can arrive Tibet safely, it all depends on how good and firm "Simple Bikes" could be, which is the very fundamentals of building their relationship and the test to show the world, how strong is a bamboo bike.

人说,要看一个伴侣合适不合适,就带她去旅行。阿布这趟四五十天的行程,一定会跟「Simple Bikes」来一次360°无死角的全面接触。穿过平原、越过丘陵,再到那缺氧的高海拔山区,能不能愉快抵达拉萨,就看竹子自行车是否固若金汤,彼此的感情是否经得起艰辛的考验。

In this mini series starting from today on daily basis, Abu will be telling you his story and he will give you some precious cycling and travel tips from Chengdu, China to Lhasa, Tibet.

Stay tuned!
