From China to London by bike – People’s Daily Online


The charms of the open road are easily matched by its daunting challenges – one wrong turn and you could end up in a very different place than you intended.

Yet for 23-year-old Zheng Sheng, a recent graduate of Shanghai Science and Technology University, such challenges were hardly a deterrent when it came to his just-completed four-month-long bike trek from Shanghai to London.

Setting off on March 5, Zheng traversed 11 countries, including, Kazakhstan, Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and France, finally arriving at his destination – London on July 18.
