Along Alangyi Ancient Trail and Other Links

I am sitting out this weekend with a sore shoulder. It seems like an old weight training injury coming back to welcome me to middle age... again.

Above is a video of some folks biking the Alongyi Ancient Trail. It looks perfect for my CX bike. The quest to pour more concrete is now threatening this little corner of cycling nirvana. Please get out there and ride it before it is replaced by busses of Chinese tourists and parking lots full of crap vendors.
