standard Two-Day Cycling and Camping Trip

With spring weather fast approaching, it’s time to get out and enjoy some of Ningbo’s beautiful mountainous scenery that lies just outside the city. On this weekend, April 4th and 5th, a group cycling and camping trip is getting together to ride out from UNNC to Tong Cun, near Dongqian Lake.  The route is a round-trip total of 70km, including a 600m climb over 7km. Not super intense, but you’ll definitely have a chance to get some serious exercise!
