To the North East of Beijing lies Miyun which offers some of the best cycling in the region. The quality of roads, scenic vistas and the impressive S 310 road with its sinuous curves cut out of the mountain side, leave even the most travelled cyclists in awe. Who would imagine that such world class cycling terrain existed so close to one of the worlds biggest cities.This ride is designed for those that want the full experience that Beijing has to offer. A gorgeous ride, peaceful surroundings and small back road climbs almost completely devoid of traffic. To get out to Miyun requires an investment in time - around about 2 hours from your hotel each way but it will worth every second.The ride starts at the Heilongtan Scenic Area on the S 310 road and slowly climbs up above the Baihe River. The road twists and turns as it hugs the side of the mountain. You travel through a series of short tunnels carved out of solid rock. As you exit each tunnel new vistas appear and you'll notice the road continuing to snake up the mountain on your right. There is just the right balance of up and down to inspire you to get out of the saddle and push over the the crests. Once you arrive at the top you'll be tempted to stop the bike and capture the amazing views.After 18kms of rolling hills we turn right up a short sharp little climb on a back road before descending right down to the Baihe river and riding along its banks for another 11kms. We stop at Liulimiao for a lunch break at a local restaurant and then trace our steps back along the S310 admiring the views from the opposite direction. We end with a well deserved downhill to the van and cold drinks from the local shop and in summer that usually means a cold beer.
