It drizzled lightly in the morning. Temperature was around 18 degrees. Perfect for sleeping in…. not. We were going cycling! Due to the slippery conditions, some of us chose to take van to foot of the hill (of our hotel) before starting the ride. Rain coats on, we pedaled on towards Yu Chang Highway Tunnel. This was one of the steepest section and the wet drizzling weather was actually cooling and made for an easier climb(for me that is). From the tunnel it was then downslope all the way to the coast. Very nice rolling down the curves and bends. Too fast and dangerous which is why I did not take much photo here.

|at the entrance of Yu Chang highway(tunnel)... rain abit more now
|actually very nice cycling in the tunnel as there was shelter from the rain
乌石鼻(Wu Shi Bi) is a small coastal place. We talked to the coast guard manning the station and was told it was a favorite for fishing buffs and people come also to see the rock formation. No shopping nor 7-11 sighted. It was a really “ulu”isolated kind of place. A very beautiful one.
