Shanghai Cycling = Ride Calendar & Riding Routes

ShanghaiCycling.Org (SCO) is building on the foundations laid by FHL, and is focusing on providing ride announcements, calendars and route information.

FHL was formed in 2000, and with the associated Yahoo Group that followed became the easiest way to get the lowdown on road cycling around the city.

However with the advent of more immediate social networks, as well as the patchy performance of Yahoo Groups without a VPN, a more accessible go to point was required.

Shanghai Cycling (SCO) is filling that void, bringing bi-lingual info on rides, as well as integration to key platforms such as WeChat, Strava and Calendar. All without the need for a VPN. Chat and discussion has mostly moved over to wechat and there are many different wechat groups setup for different cycling segments in Shanghai. See our directory for that. Shanghai Cycling (SCO) does not have its own chat group but aims to announce ride information twice a week through its official wechat channel so users know what rides are on, what time and where they start.

Shanghai Cycling (SCO) is a non profit and non commercial organization; supported and managed by cyclists who regularly ride and explore the city. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome.

And so to the riding itself. There is a surprising amount of riding available in and around Shanghai. Typically the following rides will be scheduled every week:
> Tue, 05.30. HQM (summer only) – short spin out to Sheshan. 40-60km
> Wed, 06.00 FXP – downtown spin taking in either Puxi or Pudong Expos or Minpu bridge. 40-60km
> Thu, 05.30 HQM (summer only) – short spin out to Sheshan. 40-60km
> Sat, 06.30 (summer), 07.00 (winter) HQM – longest ride of week with an initial stop at Zhujiajiao Drinkstand, via the resplendent Sheshan countryside. Thereafter heading to Canals, Dianshan Lake or further afield. 80-200km
> Sun 06.30 (summer), 07.00 (winter) HQM – generally a shorter, recovery version of Saturday’s ride. 60-120km

See the individual posts for each ride for the exact specifics. More detail on all the above rides and more can be found under Routes.

There are different groups / indivuduals orgainzing these groups. Shanghai Cycling (SCO) site and wechat channel is the place to visit to get a overview of what is on when accross all groups. These groups incorporate a diverse group of cyclists, ranging from ardent roadies and competitive triathletes through to those getting into cycling for the first time. There will generally be a couple of peletons for the larger weekend rides, to accommodate varying levels. Additionally a speed indication will be posted for rides, to help members decide whether suitable.

Please note the rides listed on Shanghai Cycling (SCO) are organised on an informal basis. Individuals use this site and join the group rides at their own risk and are solely responsible for their own safety. Riders should be prepared to cope with a variety of road conditions, traffic and AQI levels. Most rides will go ahead, if the AQI is below 150. Ultimately though. it’s an individuals decision on whether to ride.

上海骑行组织是在FHL成立的基础上建立起来的,专注于提供骑行的信息,日历和路线信息。

FHL于2000年成立,是雅虎集团相关成员建立起来的,它提供了下载或者上传围绕城市骑行最方便的方法

然而随着更多即时社交网站的出现,以及雅虎集团没有VPN远程访问技术,需求一个更加方便的站点。

SCO填聊补了那部分空白,提供了中英文的骑行信息,同时还有关键的平台像微信,Strava和日历,我们不需要一个VPN,聊天和讨论大部分通过微信进行,我们有很多微信群,为了在上海不同的骑行段。可以看我们的目录册。SCO我们聊天群,但是它的目标是每周两次通过微信官方平台发布骑行信息,这样使用的人就知道哪些骑行要进行,在什么时间,什么地点开始。

SCO不是一个盈利性的商业组织,是骑行队伍里的车手自己组织建立起来的。回复和评论我们总是很欢迎的。

然后关于骑行本身,在上海或者环绕着上海周边有着惊人数量的骑行项目可以参加,下面是通常每个礼拜会有的骑行

礼拜2,05:30 虹桥大酒店(就夏天),到佘山 40-60公里

礼拜3,.6点, FXP 浦东或者浦西世博会或者minpu大桥 40-60公里

每周4,5点半,虹桥大酒店 到佘山 40-60公里

每周6, 6点半(夏季),7点(冬季),虹桥大酒店-最长的一周一次骑行,在朱家角的Drinkstand暂停,通过漂亮的佘山农村,然后一直向运河骑行,到淀山湖或者更远的地方 80-200公里

每周日,6点半(夏季),7点(冬季),虹桥大酒店—较短的骑行,60-120公里

准确的细节在每条骑行路线的单独列里可以看到,更多的细节在上面的路线下面。

有不同的团队和个人组织了这些骑行队伍,SCO网站跟微信平台是一个展示一个总体团队的地方,这些团队把不同的骑行队伍,有热情的车手,参加比赛的三项比赛运动员,联合起来,第一次参加骑行。在将来我们会有大部队的周末骑行队伍,为了适应不同水平,一个速度指示说明将会标示出来来帮助车手们决定这个速度是否适合自己。

请注意在SCO上面所列的所有骑行路线是基于是个不正式的组织,个人使用这个站点,加入队伍,应自己承担安全风险,个人对自己负责。车手应该准备好应对一系列的路况,交通和空气质量指数水平问题。大部分的车手会进行骑行,如果空气质量指数低于150的话,但是最终,去不去骑行是个人的决定。
