Biking around Beijing

AY and I decided to do a little bike tour around Beijing today to see some of the less accessible sites. We ended up going along the Fourth Ring Road (北四环路), where the Olympic venues are located. This was a bad bad bad decision because today was one of the smoggiest days since I’ve been here, seriously about 4km into the ride I had trouble breathing. But anyway, my pulmonary calamity is your good fortune, because I took pictures of some of the places along the ride.

Our main goal was to see the Olympic Stadium and Natatorium, which dominate this plaza north of the 4th Ring. Unfortunately we couldn’t really get close because the area is still fenced and people are putting the finishing touches on the place, but things look like they’re going to be done in time for the big day.
