China Impressions: Outdoor and Sports

Outdoor activities and sports in China: Why don't you start your own sports club in China?

As people are starting to have money, they are getting interested in western hobbies like sports. The rock climbing in Beijing started in about 2002. Friends of mine opened a rock climbing club which is doing well. The yoga place I sometimes go to is opening up more and more locations and training people to be yoga instructors as the demand is increasing. I was trying to help start artistic bicycling, but failed due to lack of time to go to the bicycling city of China called Taiyuan. Do you want to start a sports club in Beijing? Go for it.

Here I will be adding pictures around the topics of outdoor sports like rock climbing, hiking and skiing as well as other sports like martial arts. Also pictures of the friends sharing these sports will be uploaded.

I starting with some old pictures first and now am doing a lot of recent ones as I need that anyway for my blog:
