Three elderly men from Tianjin have completed their 5,000km bicycle ride across China in 60 days, along the coastline from Tianjin to the nation’s second southernmost city, Sanya.

Zhang Baoquan, 66, Liu Guiming, 67, and Su Shuhua, 57, were determined to travel around China while they were still healthy.

The Red Sunset Cycling Team began the tour on November 1st and arrived at Sanya on December 30th after passing through Hebei, Shandong, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian, Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau.

They were farmers who did not have chance to travel around when they were younger due to the pressure of supporting their families, but they all shared this same dream.

During the two-month journey, they did not have day-by-day itinerary. “It was not about finishing a task or creating a miracle. We were there to relax ourselves and enjoy the journey,” said Zhang.
