Beijing Hikers goes way back

In Brief: An old BTV interview with founders Gary and Huilin about their early-90s 5,000 mile bike ride from Beijing to London.

We were going through the archives the other month and found a bit of Beijing Hikers history—a CCTV interview with founders Gary and Huilin about their early-90s 5,000 mile bike ride from Beijing to London.

It predates the hiking club by quite a few years, but you can see the adventurous spirit and environmentalist roots from which Beijing Hikers appeared, and you can also get an idea of what people were doing in Beijing around that time. If you’re an old school Beijinger you might recognise a few names!
