The challenge

  • Cycle over 400kms in the shadows of the Great Wall of China
  • Witness Imperial China's frontline defence
  • Experience rural life around the UNESCO Heritage Site
  • Explore Beijing's Forbidden City and Temple of Heaven
  • Optional extensions to see the Terracotta Warriors and Pandas

The Great Wall of China was originally constructed to keep out nomadic tribes who raided China’s northern frontier.  As you ride alongside the Great Wall, your imagination will take you back several centuries to when the wall was the frontline defence of Imperial China.

Your cycling challenge starts in the village of Changping, north of Beijing city.  Each day you will cycle approximately 75kms - 85kms in the shadows of the Great Wall, with the opportunity to set foot on the Wall itself.

This incredibly scenic challenge covers a route along one of the world’s best known UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It is a demanding yet rewarding expedition, as you enjoy the vast and beautiful mountain ranges all around and witness the rural life of northern China from your saddle.

On completion of your challenge you will return to Beijing to explore some of the many attractions of China’s capital city: the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and Tiananmen Square.
