Cycling China: Wildhomestay
Wildhomestay is located in a small village between Huzhou and Huangshan in China's Zhejiang province. A train line now connects the area with such metropolis areas as Shanghai. Life seems much simpler and slower here and can be very relaxing. Unless you are a cyclist, then you can't resist the open views and challenging climb up nearby Daming Mountain (Damingshan). If the 20km climb is a bit too much then give a shorter climb a try at a nearby ancient village that will give you an experience rich in history and culture. After a hard days work on the bike it's nice to know you'll be returning to the surprisingly modern and comfortable environment of WIldhomestay - not to mention a hearty Chinese meal.
