Finally my bike has arrived where it should be. A real odysee and telephone calls with only chinese speaking clerks. In between the always encouraging "maybe tomorrow...". After two weeks of no-biking I will start today from Golmud towards the Tibetan plateau. Food for two weeks, money for a month and warm cloths I will head with two Canadian cyclists for a couple of days towards the province of Tibet, then will turn left 'overland' to Yushu over the very remote and little populated plateau. Looking forward to and being afraid of it at the same time...!
All the best from Golmud
