Bamboo begins.

the start

The countdown is over and the riders have  left Shanghai. Riders who just 24 hours ago were out-and-about in the city sightseeing and grabbing any last minute goodies are now enjoying their first night on the road.

the staff, Doug, Sharita, Claire, NeikaWhile they have been busy connecting with friends new and old, the Bamboo staff have been hard at it as Doug had his hands full with his bike shop, assembling the riders’ bikes and making sure they were all in good riding condition. Claire, the medic, had scouted out a fun ride around the city so the riders could get a small taste of what it would be like dodging scooters and local traffic in these chaotic city streets. The ‘Head Honcho’, Sharita and Nieka the ATD checked off their to-do lists while doing last minute shopping and preparing with the help of local translators Sally and Tonton.

One day down, 89 to go!
