Shanghai by bike: Huangpu

Plenty to see on the cycling route beside the Huangpu

Route suggested by Andy Weller, Shanghai Cycling Group

‘From The Bund I like to head south along the Puxi side of the river. Take a left at Fuxing ferry and follow the dog-leg down past the Cool Docks where the road quietens; you go under Nanpu Bridge before turning left onto the former Expo site proper. Shortly after Lupu Bridge you again turn left and pass Nanyuan Park until you are beside the river again. You make another left and pass the numerous museums and art galleries dotted along the water front. You don’t really need to go much further than the Longyao Lu crossing.

‘I like this route because there is lots to see and do, it is good for all levels of cyclists, anybody can do it at any pace, and it’s safe. You can join it from anywhere and go in either direction.’
