A Ride Around Erhai Lake, Dali

I rented a bike one afternoon while I was staying in Dali, and decided to try to ride the length of the large lake which runs to the north of the city.  It was an amazing day, clear and beautiful to a rare degree, and it was one of the best things I have ever done in China.  I would go so far as to say that it was one of the best day rides I have ever taken, though my legs and knees would pay for the abuse I was giving them quite heavily in the weeks that followed.  All told, I did around 70km in one ride, a foolish decision for someone who hasn’t done any serious riding in at least four years.  There isn’t much of a story to go with this one, but I think the pictures will say all this is needed.  Enjoy-
