Be ready for convenient pickup at your Chengdu hotel for an 8am departure. Please note: advise all passenger heights at time of booking to ensure correctly-sized bicycles are available. Meet your dedicated guide and climb into a private, air-conditioned vehicle, which will be your transportation for the day. Relax on the drive to Pixian County, about an hour away.
Disembark in a quaint village, where a bicycle and helmet will be waiting for you. Once you get geared up, pedal off into the countryside on the Pixian County Greenway. Watch the scenery glide by as you skirt the river, part of the Dujiangyan Irrigation System, a UNESCO-listed example of early Chinese engineering. Spend about 1.5 hours on the track, passing small villages and cycling through bamboo forests, before turning around once you reach Wejiang County.
Refuel with a traditional Sichuan meal at a local restaurant, during which your guide will fill you in on traditional foods and their origins. Then, board your vehicle for the 30-minute drive to the Sichuan Cuisine Museum. Tour the museum to learn about the history of Chinese cooking, its intersection with Chinese medical theories, and how it has evolved over time. Relax with a cup of tea to cap off your 1.5-hour visit to the museum before heading back to Chengdu for drop-off around 4:30pm.
