Lu Shan: Day 1

When we moved to Jiujiang, we heard of the nearby scenic attraction Mount Lu. My father mentioned seeing a small article about it in some Chinese picture book.

Off-road Road Biking

Last year, I sold my mountain bike and bought a road bike. Why? 95% of the roads around here are paved. I have very few trails to justify owning a mountain bike.

However, occasionally the local bike club (every member of which rides a knobby tire mountain bike) goes crazy and finds a dirt road.
