Lots of climbing calls for beautiful views! At the summit of the Tianshan Mountains, in China.

Everywhere we go people ask to take photos of us and with us. This is what it looks like through our eyes.

All is well! We've been in the mountains for a few days without wifi. The riding has been exhausting but the scenery has been beautiful!

Lunch stop! The woman running the shop thought Amberlynn's hair was beautiful and wanted to braid it! 😄

Shade can be tough to come by... take what you can get.

Packing some heat! 🤣 Actually it's at a military themed camp for kids. We're staying at the same hotel. A welcomed site after pedaling uphill all day under the scorching sun.

Hot. Dusty. Climb.

We met some Chinese cyclists yesterday and they convinced us to go up into the mountains today. We'll pop out at the same place but add several more days and lots of elevation before we reach the Kazakhstan border. It's about to get real! 14,300 foot pass here we come! 😳

While Ben's wheel was with the mechanic, we sat on the steps of the bike shop, watching the Tour de France play on an iPhone with Chinese commentary. A fellow Chinese cyclist made sure we were well cared for all day - lunch, bike movies, badminton, and hotel. Again, great hospitality!

We stopped into a little restaurant in the middle of nowhere for a late lunch. The family running it was very friendly. A few broken English and Chinese words were enough for conversation. They were amazed that we are traveling by bicycle. In the end, they refused to take our money. We're thankful for their generosity!

Gotta love cycling on dusty dirt roads, through construction zones, when the temperature is 100ºF!
