SHANGHAI, China – As a trial step on her way to become a professional cyclist, Jiang Huan, a nine-year-old girl set out on a 5,400-kilometer bicycle trip to Tibet yesterday morning. Jiang Huan (center), 9, her father Jiang Shaobo (right), and cycling fan Wu Fuming start their bike journey to Tibet yesterday at People’s Square. The trip is expected to take three months.
This is the second bicycle expedition for the primary school girl, who rode across Yunnan Province in two weeks last August. A small farewell ceremony took place at the city’s People’s Square, which is considered the starting point of National Highway 318. "It is my ambition to make her a professional cyclist," the 36-year-old father stressed. "I hope to go to as many places with my daughter as I can before I get too old."
