Shaoxing,Zhejiang, bike This picture was taken on a visit to Shaoxing in January 2008.  Two years on and the bike is still there, though somewhat diminished... shaoxing, zhejiang bike It always pays to lock your bike up to a large immovable object. It's advice I should have taken myself back around the time Top 5 Tips to Prevent your Bike from getting Stolen in China. My trusty steed was nicked just two weeks later! Of course, if you leave a bike anywhere for long enough, it's bound to start disappearing... Just 70km south-east of Hangzhou, Shaoxing is a pleasant destination to spend a day or two while exploring Zhejiang province. Stroll through the canal-laced old town with its whitewashed, slate-roofed houses and ancient bridges and be sure to enjoy a glass or two of Shaoxing wine (Shaoxing huangjiu), distilled from locally grown rice and famous throughout China. But if you're riding a bike, well, don't drink... and don't forget that bike thieves have tool boxes and a lot of patience.
