I have a lot of things to say, and the high praise big guys in the front have said a lot of what I want to say. Let me mention something else, a bit of personal experience. I am an ordinary person from a remote red city on the east coast of the motherland. Before I grew up, I had not been out of my hometown of Yancheng in the first 20 years of my life. I lived in a small town with a radius of less than 10 kilometers most of the time. But even so, in this country of 1.4 billion people, I can still have the opportunity to walk out of the small village and reach all corners of the motherland. When I was in middle school, a map of China was often hung at home, and I often fantasized about going out of Yancheng to other places. And this wish will not be possible until 12 years after leaving home to study abroad. Then the world came alive, and I also had the opportunity to go to the distance to see those cities that only appeared on the map in the textbook. How big is China? I started cycling from Suzhou to Guangzhou by one month and five days in February, 2018, with a journey of 2400km. During the long journey, from north to south, we traversed plains, hills, mountains, rivers and lakes. The temperature ranges from cold to hot, riding all the way south, and the flowers blooming all the way, and it goes through three seasons in a month, winter, spring and summer. Because I used to study in my hometown, I never saw the sea before I was 24, even though I lived in a coastal city. Although it is a coastal area, mine is still a long way from the Yellow Sea. Even if I reach the Yellow Sea, the coastline continues for dozens of miles, and it is yellow sand. So I was born by the sea, but I have hardly eaten seafood, and I have never seen the sea, but I have eaten some mud snails. Later, I rode around and boarded Zhoushan Island. When I took the ferry, I saw the white fleet from a distance. For the first time, the Chinese People’s Navy appeared in front of me, but when the ferry crossed the strait, I still couldn’t see the blue sea. When I rode to Xiamen, I saw the blue sea shown on TV for the first time, but it was more than a thousand kilometers away from Zhoushan. How big is China? In half of China, there are 22 cities along the southeast coast, four provinces including Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian and Guangdong. I traversed countless dialect districts, provided supplies and rested in countless roadside shops, restaurants, and hotels, but I didn’t bring any auxiliary tools. I could pass through with only a little Mandarin with a local accent. Their house is no different from my hometown, and their appearance is similar to mine. They also live by the river, they also grow rice, wheat, sugarcane, plantain, and cabbage. I saw the sugar cane in the field for the first time, and I also took photos. China is so big, so big that this ride surpassed my imagination. I headed south by myself and used a bicycle to measure the vastness of the motherland, which is less than half of China, and I have been cycling for 35 days. I headed south alone, through the plains and hills, and then entered Fujian to travel through the mountains. I turned a few mountains in a day. On the way down, I looked at the city of Fuzhou, which was full of lights under the mountain, and I was shocked. (Unfortunately, the photo is unsuccessful) I am heading south by myself, and the ordinary road is my portrayal. I have crossed the mountains and the sea and crossed the sea of people. Everything that I have ever had disappeared in a blink of an eye. I was once disappointed and lost in all directions. Knowing that seeing the ordinary is the only answer, I am heading south by myself. This is my answer. Expanded reading A ride to Guangzhou-Ordinary Road Recorded on March 27, 2018, revised on August 6. Today I am finally free, and I can finally sit calmly in front of the computer and sort out some of my recent events. A while ago, on February 11th, I started cycling from Suzhou all the way south to Guangzhou. The whole route is from Suzhou to Wuxi, and then to the coast of Taihu Lake, to the bottom of the landmark Xiaomanyao Pagoda in Guangzhou. The whole journey is about 2400KM+ and it takes 35 days. It passes through 22 cities in 4 provinces, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian and Guangdong. This trip to Guangzhou was quite accidental. It was decided on February 8th to borrow a car from my brother on the 9th and return to Suzhou on the 10th. Prepared some brief equipment, and set off on the morning of the 11th without doing the Raiders. I have never ridden a long distance before, and the longest one in a day was only less than 90km. It may be due to the results of my exercise. Although there is not much effect in losing weight on my own, there are still potential enhancements to physical fitness. Except for the mountain roads in the mountainous areas of Zhejiang and Fujian, the whole trip didn’t give me too many challenges. In the last few days, I could even ride 150km+ a day. Of course, this data can only represent myself, and it can’t be compared with professional cyclists. In the traditional sense, I am an unusually conservative and conservative person. In my first two decades, I set foot in Suzhou and Nantong from my hometown because I went to university. Because I didn’t set foot in Jiangsu Province for the first time for an internship in Zhejiang until after I graduated. The circle of my life for many years is actually very small. No matter whether it was before or now, I am a person who is not keen on traveling, not keen on all kinds of group activities, a person who does not “play” in the eyes of ordinary people. Of course, these are restricted by some objective factors. Generally speaking, I would never do something “out of the ordinary” of riding to Guangzhou by myself. Looking back, at this time, I will delve into why I went to Guangzhou. The reason is actually untestable. As far as I am concerned, the ups and downs along the way make it difficult for me to tell everyone why I went to Guangzhou. It is also difficult for me to say clearly what ignited my own unscrupulous choice. It doesn’t matter if you ride alone, go to Guangzhou, or do other things. The trip itself is actually no big deal, for me it was just a ride, and there was nothing special to say. I am not going to travel. This trip is only the result of the last burning of his long-repressed restless heart. If we assume that everyone has a crazy idea of riding to Guangzhou, which seems impossible and has sufficient practical constraints. I urge you to give it a try. There is no need to say more about it, so you may as well give it a try. Regarding the outcome, in fact, you know it when you are on the road. In many cases, don’t you just want an answer? Of course the answer is very important, and the answer is equally unimportant. At the end of the itinerary, underneath the Guangzhou TV Tower, a small waist, I actually don’t have any special feelings. It seems a little bit relieved, a little but that, nothing more. Looking around the surrounding travelers, couples and friends who come and go in threes and fives, and tourists who take pictures as a souvenir, they feel more than a lot at that moment. After a while, I picked up my bicycle and rode into the distance. Regardless of life, the road is at your feet. PS: This trip, I sincerely thank my brother for his strong support, and sincerely thank my mother for her full understanding and encouragement! After arriving in Guangzhou on the evening of the 17th, I bought a ticket on the 19th and returned to Suzhou in the morning on the 20th.
