I did decide to take it easy today and stay in Jiayuguan to rest up.
I took the opportunity to ride out of the city on the bike and visit Jiayuguan fort. I have to say I’m the worst kind of tourist as I continually baulk at the asking price to enter these ‘attractions’ I just think twelve pounds is over my daily budget and not really worth it. I decided instead to ride my bike around the fort and came across the back entrance to it. It did require me walking across a large section of desert to get to it but it was worth it for the pictures.
Apart from that I didn’t do a lot. I cleaned my chain and checked over the bike as per usual but it’s been what I intended, a relaxing day,
