 Countryroads cycling from Guilin to Yangshuo from the western side of Li River

In the morning, we will be transferred with our bicycles outside the crowded Guilin city and drives about one hour. We start our cycling into countryside directly and avoid the traffic, passing through quiet villages and small forest; we cycle into the perfect concrete roads built between local famer’s rice fields, surrounded by Karst scenery and small rivers.

We continue our cycling again through peaceful villages on country roads. After lunch into the eastern part of the main road, we enjoy the awesome scenery there. The buses and cars are far away from us. The less commercialized villages means few annoying tourists and cars but less chances to having supply, so please take enough food and water before leaving Yanshan town. We will encounter more climbings in the afternoon, riders will enjoy the real country roads (some of the sections are poor and muddy) envied on books and others' blogs.

We have to conquer over many mountains and big climbs today at a total climbing up distances over 14KM. We finish the first 1/3 tour without too much troubles although there are few short slopes on off-road. Save energy for the rest part of this tour as we are facing steep climbs on muddy roads and macadam, a mixture of road surface on paved or unpaved cycling. Awesome scenery but hard climbs, we will have chances seeing the pouch hill,Yulong river valley and the dragon bridge. 

Yangshuo is now a bit crowded with tourists, people looking for a silent world better consider of arranging their accommodation outside Yangshuo downtown.
