Understanding our challenge types


Make memories to last a lifetime as we explore the Great Wall of China - by bike! 

Our challenge begins at the Badaling old section of the Wall, where we’ll have the privilege of placing our own bricks in a newly restored section. We'll then get back in the saddle and cycle to the Juyongguan Barracks, with stunning views of the surrounding mountains and of the Great Wall itself. Over the next few days we'll explore the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Ming Tombs, cycle along the picturesque Miyun Reservoir and ride along the famous Landscape Gallery! The cycling will be tough, but the incredible scenery and historic sights will keep us going and make all our efforts worthwhile. We'll then journey to our finish line - the Jinshanling section of The Great Wall! 

Upon completing our cycle challenge, we'll have a free day to explore the fascinating sights and sounds of Beijing, before enjoying a celebratory dinner to reflect on our amazing achievements!
