Immerse yourself in Chinese culture and explore the Great Wall by bike!

9TH - 17TH OCTOBER 2021

Immerse yourself in Chinese culture and make memories to last a lifetime! Our adventure starts with a visit to the Badaling old section of the Wall, where we’ll have the privilege of placing our own bricks in a newly restored section.
After exploring the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Ming Tombs, a ride along Beijing’s number one cycling route, and a visit to one of the most popular sections of the Wall, we arrive at our finish line at the Jinshanling section. We’ll then complete our challenge with a day exploring the incredible city of Beijing! The cycling will be tough, but the incredible scenery and historic sights will keep us going and make all our efforts worthwhile.
