Mission Workshop _ PiNP Bike Tour: Day 08

I think I speak for the whole gang when I say that we’re all very happy to be done with the bike tour of China. It wasn’t so much the distance, because on paper, it’s not that much, totaling around 300 miles. But when you consider everything we encountered, it was one of the most sobering experiences of my life.

One of the things I did look forward to each night were the group rides. For me, it’s rad to see what and how people are riding in each city. Hangzhou was no different from the other cities. Most of the riders were young, most had cheap “rainbow fixies” but some had insane track bikes, ready for the boards…

Check out some narrated photos in the Gallery and keep an eye on Mission Workshop’s (@MissionWorkshop), Factory 5 (@Factory5) and my Instagram (@JohnProlly) during the day for updates.

    What an amazing journey. You are in the business of creating inspiration and business is good.

    John, Punk IPA is the flagship beer of Brew Dog, a brewery out of Scotland. They gained a bit of notoriety for their battle with Schorschbräu, a small German brewery, to create the world’s highest ABV beer (currently at 57.7%). I can’t believe such an obscure brewery managed to get their product into China!
