On Sunday, 13 ActiveXers including friends and families, KAREN YANG (QA Lead, IS),FOD SHADBAKHT (English Trainer), EDA ZHAO (Config/Release Engineer, IT), CASH XU (Controller), WESLEY WANG (Software Engineer, ACR), BRUCE XU(QA, ActiveTrainer), TONY CHEN (QA, IS), COLIN LI(Associate Manager, IT), DYLAN HAI (Sys Administrator, IT), STEVEN LIU (Dev, Class) finished our first official bike race in Xi’an, 2011 UCC & ZOOM National Cycling Series, on the symbol of great significance of the famous historic cultural city of Xi'an, the Xi'an City Wall. This is the first and very rare opportunity you can ride your own bike on the City Wall, but it was not that pleasant as you saw or you thought, because it was so bumpy!

The team finished the all the MTB categories safely, most of us rode 2 laps (27.4KM) and plus 4 finished a group ride. The speed winner in the team is Eda, who finished at 56’50’’. The distance winner is Dylan, who finished 4 laps totally. It was funny to have a day like this, we made some stupid mistakes, but we finished pretty awesome, as a team.  Also thanks for ANSON ZHAO, JESSIE JI, LILY BU, SUSIE HOU, VERA MA AND JANE SHI’s volunteering and supporting at the start/finish line! They’re real pro photographers, bike mechanics, and logistics! Luckily I noticed we’re the only team with our own volunteers and supporters in the race!

13 Xers, Colin Li (IT), Karen Yang (CRM), Eda Zhao (IT), Steven Xue (IT), Kelly Yang (IT), Jimmie Jiang (BA), Rui Zhang (Class), Jason Qu (IT), Wesley Wang (ACR), yesterday spent a great ride day to Dayu Valley from Xi'an High Tech Zone, totally 52.5 miles including 6 miles uphill and 5 miles downhill. Definitely an exhausting day spending 6 hours on bike, but all the fatigue disappeared when lying on the bed and recalling what have been challenged. It’s the first team ride this year and it was epic! The weather changed their original XLove ride plan, which was riding to the mountain and pick up the trash thrown by tourists, but it’s now on the team’s next ride schedule.

4th Hash Run

Posted by ericbenjaming Nov 17, 2010

On Sat. I ran my 4th hash run this year, one more run to get my hash name! YAY! It was the longest hash run ever, since we talked about the Hash Run in Xi'an is more like a beer drinking activity but not run than much, this time, totally different, since the important part is to sending off one of the members "Blue Balls" leave the city. Every runners tied up blue belt, wear blue T-Shirts, get them in blue for the memories. I think totally it could be 12K, but definately an Epic event ever!
