Pub Nite: ‘Biking Chengdu to Lhasa through the Southern Road’ – Thu May 25 @ 7:30 pm

WHEN: Thurs May 25th @ 7:30 pm

WHERE: Imperial Pub, Back Room – 54 Dundas Street East, Toronto

TOPIC: In the summer of 2019, Yifei Yan took a one-month cycling trip across China covering a distance of almost 2250 km and overall elevation gain of almost 3200 m. The trip, starting in Chengdu, Sichuan and ending in Lhasa, Tibet featured major passes with elevation differences of 1500 m and 2000 m. The route covers scenic and gorgeous landscapes from farm fields to forests, lushes, prairies, and deserts in a short distance but large elevation gain. At the same time, witnessing the change from a busy mega city, to popular tourism destinations, to small wild-west style towns, to remote villages, and back again shows the diversity of human settlement. Join us in at Pub Nite as Yifei recounts his second of two most recent adventures!

BIO: Yifei started outdoor activities in 2019 and went headfirst into mountaineering by the summer of 2020. Although spending most of his time in Toronto, he makes sure to make time for larger climbing trips during the summer. Recently, he attempted some alpine objectives and multi-pitches in the Canadian Rockies; three of his favorites so far are Eisenhower Tower, Grand Sentinel, and Mt. Fay. While in Toronto, Yifei stays busy with cragging, indoor gym climbing, and cardio training in preparation for the mountains. He is always looking to meet people with similar interests.
