Enjoyed cruising along the coastal concrete road from the Lingao monument to the Yangpu area.
The Yangpu Ancient Salt Field is an archeological heritage site in Yantian village, on the Yangpu Peninsula in Hainan, China.
Salt Field area comprises more than 1,000 stones, cut flat on top, which are used to evaporate seawater to produce salt.
The stones have a thin rim around the edge to contain the water. During high tide, the surface of the stones becomes filled with seawater.
During low tide, this evaporates, leaving the salt, which is then collected.
The area was established around 800 AD when a group of salt workers from Putian city in Fujian province moved to Yangpu.
Today, only a small group of villagers continue to make salt using this method and it is not their main source of income.

A couple of weeks biking and business on Hainan Island coming to an end once again, time flies when you have good time....
The Jialing JH600 has been washed, cleaned and stored dry and safe again, well ~ a Tropical Storm brought some wind and heavy rain to the greater Yalong Bay area during my last day but everything went smooth.











Shall let the grass sleep till the next Hainan bike ride later in the year.... to be continued....

Mate, get one and you shall discover the secrets and joy of the mighty JIALING JH600 as well, they are great bikes for what they are....

side-note: I am not really into cars but anyone interested to run on the wild side, here you go, enquired in the Sanya / Dadonghai (Hainan Island) rental office http://www.sykcdd.com
The green Lambo costs 22000 RMB (approx. 3600 US$) per day and in typical China super-car fashion doesn't have any license plates mounted...

Mate, thanks for asking, calmed down now but takes 3hrs. to drive a car from Sanya Bay to Yalong Bay as no traffic lights and lots of uprooted trees usually a 45min. drive)....
My colleagues are fine, talked to them yesterday and today.

Gales, rain cause chaos in Hainan
November 11, 2013, Monday | Shanghai Daily Newspaper

Six crew members of a cargo boat were reported missing as Typhoon Haiyan brushed past China’s southern island province of Hainan yesterday.
They were lost in the South China Sea after a rope was cut in the storm, causing the ship to drift from its mooring at Sanya Port, Xinhua news agency reported.
A rescue team has been sent to search for survivors but strong gales and torrential rain are making conditions difficult, according to the news agency.
Two workers were rescued in Sanya after their work sheds collapsed on them in the gales and two fishermen were saved after a boat incident.

Haiyan is the strongest typhoon to hit China this year and the China Meteorological Administration has announced its highest typhoon alert for the storm which led to hundreds of flights being canceled and the calling back to port of more than 400 boats, Xinhua said.
The gales and rainstorms have also cut power supplies, uprooted trees and led to waterlogging in some urban areas of Sanya.

As of 3pm yesterday, local government authorities in Hainan had relocated about 133,000 residents to avoid further risks, Xinhua said.
Torrential rain since yesterday morning led to Sanya Phoenix International Airport canceling 207 flights, affecting more than 16,00 passengers. The airport suspended all flights at noon and closed the road leading to the airport due to the heavy rain.

China Southern Airlines canceled all 55 flights to and from Sanya. The airline said they had informed customers by phone, text messages and e-mail and would provide refund and rebooking services for free. Travelers can dial 95539 for more information.
Juneyao Airlines also canceled its flights from Shanghai to Sanya and customers can dial 95520 for more information.
Weather officials say the typhoon is moving toward China’s southern region of Guangxi.

Autumn run to my favourite nearby biking playground, MOGANSHAN
Mount Mogan is a mountain located in Deqing County, Zhejiang Province, China, 60 kilometers from the provincial capital Hangzhou and 200 km from Shanghai.
It is part of the Moganshan National Park and at its base is the small town of Moganshan





















Running into two three-wheeled Scooter riders in the Moganshan Mountains...

Thanks for another installment in your China-rides. Always pleasurable seeing your photos.

Do you have any idea what brand those scoots were originally? Were those the builders? The silver one seems to have quite the side curtain, body kit.

They were moving pretty quick through the twisties, both had Zhejiang province license plates.
Stopped on the roadside to make a few phone calls and the two "scooterists" stopped opposite my parking spit and trying to talk in a dialect never heard before, not Mandarin / not Shanghainese. They took pics of my Jialing JH600 sidecar and as you can see- took pics of them to be polite and nice.
Well - did not ask them about the bikes but one of my mates living in the mountains during the weekend (weekend cottage) says he has seen them a few times while mountain biking.....

Autumn bike ride from Shanghai over to Hangzhou (Zhejiang Province) along the Grand Canal waterway system, the Dalian Lake wetlands promoting environmental improvements and education.
Route = National Road #320 Shanghai - Xitang - Jiaxing - Hangzhou.











Recycling along National Road #320 near Xitang Watertown (Zhejiang), recycling of all sorts (paper, glass, metal, etc.) is quite a big business in China...











Hold your breath while passing the fibreglass plant beside the National road #320, a city itself, massive and huge processing factory....

Hangzhou (Hangchow) lies in the north of Zhejiang province, in the Qiantangjiang delta, about 40km/25mi west of Hangzhou Bay, at 120°12'E and 30°15'N.
The rather tranqil town of Hangzhou, popularly known as ''Silk City'', is one of China's most beautiful towns; in the words of the well-known Chinese proverb ''In Heaven is Paradise, here on earth are Suzhou and Hangzhou''.
The famous ''Dragon Well'' tea (Longjing cha) which is hand-picked twice a year is grown in this region. More Hangzhou info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hangzhou

Hefang Old Street is a historical cultural street area located at the foot of the scenic Wushan Hill of southern Hangzhou and quite close to the famous West Lake.
As usual, snack food widely available.
