During high school, I spent a several summer days just exploring Beijing by bicycle, going wherever I felt like going. I don’t have any fitness tracking data from this time, but I have pictures and memories, which I guess are more important or something?1 Anyway, one particularly memorable day was spent biking to the 798 art district. I went into some of the art galleries (well, the free ones), but mostly I just walked around the area.
Another fun thing was crawling under a gate to poke around an abandoned factory. I don’t see how the guard could have missed me—he probably just didn’t care.
I guess this relates only tangentially to cycling, but it was a nice memory.
