两个农村老人的骑行梦

   新华社石家庄10月2日电(记者许苏培、赵鸿宇)5年前,两个农村老人推上二八自行车,带上油炸花生米,开始了他们的骑行梦,北至漠河,南抵海南,车辙绵延上万公里。他们相信,远方不远,只要出发终能到达。

  2013年,河北保定市徐水区高林营村农民刘金瑞和初中同学刘德平,第一次萌生了结伴骑行的念头。“我俩忙了一辈子农活,子女都安定了,就想出去看看祖国的大好河山。”刘金瑞说,两人骑上自行车说走就走,从河北绕远路到漠河,这一走就是75天。

  “拖鞋、打气筒、铁质小马扎……第一次骑车出远门没经验,不该带的都带了。”刘金瑞笑着说,两个人零零散散带了3个大行李袋。75天里,这两个60多岁的老人每天和太阳同时起床,骑行8小时、上百公里,为了省钱,他俩晚上常常住在帐篷里。

  尽管有时风餐露宿,但刘金瑞相机镜头下的风景特别烂漫。路标、行人、野花、寺庙……女儿送了他一台相机,每次骑行他都带上,回来去照相馆洗出来留念。

  因为年龄大了,当被问起骑行的一些故事时,刘金瑞经常想不起来。为此,他每次骑行回来会特别挑一些照片请照相馆的人加上备注。有一张照片,拍的是森林中的帐篷,一抹清清亮亮的阳光在晨雾中若隐若现。“清晨的第一缕曙光。”他备注着。

  第一次骑行回来后,两人在家休整了一年。2015年,刘金瑞和刘德平,还有一个此前听说两个人骑行事迹的退休教师,三个年龄加在一起超过200岁的老爷子,花了45天,骑行了河北、山东、河南、陕西和山西等五省。此行一直与山路相伴,对于三个老人来说相当不容易。三人翻越山西吕梁山时,由于上坡太费力,一度累得躺在路上起不来。有时遇到下陡坡,一脚不蹬都能飞驰出数里。

  长时间、高强度的骑车,人劳累不说,车坏也是经常的。这次骑行,刘金瑞的车胎打了十几个补丁,有一次甚至补了三个多小时。

  尽管每天大把时间在骑行,他们也没有错过仰慕已久的风景名胜。曲阜孔庙、洛阳白马寺、嵩山少林寺……全国很多景点60岁以上老人免费或者半票,这让他们开心不已。

  2018年,刘金瑞和刘德平再次出发,目的地是海南。80天的时间里,两个人从河北一路骑行经过山东、安徽、江苏、上海、浙江、广东和海南等地。

  到了南方城市,因为听不懂方言,两人还闹了不少笑话。不过刘金瑞说,人在异乡还是常会遇到好心人,他和刘德平曾经被困在山里前不着村后不着店的时候,是山里防火站的人收留他们过夜。

  五年多时间里的三次骑行,刘金瑞说,自己不光心胸开阔了,连身体都比过去健康很多。海南骑行回来后成功减肥18斤,血压也比过去平稳了,都不用吃药了。

  在两人的影响下,村里不少人也开始尝试骑行。大家发现,原来以为专业车手才能干的事,农民自己也能做到。“有时候一刷朋友圈才发现,原来乡亲们已经骑车去了那么远的地方。”刘金瑞感慨地说。

  刘金瑞和刘德平的第四次骑行,本来计划近期从河北出发,到新疆和西藏去。可刘德平今年生了病,身体条件不再允许他骑行。刘金瑞说,他打算一个人去青海附近看看,要是有脾气相投的“老伙伴”,就去个更远的地方。

Across China: Country for old men: cycling tours widen horizons of Chinese farmers

By Xinhua Writers Xu Supei and Zhao Hongyu

     SHIJIAZHUANG, Oct. 2 (Xinhua) -- Liu Jinrui is 70 this year. If his cycling partner Liu Deping was not ill, the duo would have embarked on a 2,880-km cycling tour to Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region from their hometown in north China's Hebei Province at this time of the year.

    The two farmers set the goal of traveling across China on bicycle in 2013, and have since reached to over 20 provinces in China with a total ride of 20,000 km.

     "Cycling is the cheapest way to travel," Jinrui said. "When we are freed from farming and family burdens, we have grown old. It is time to realize the dream of seeing the great rivers and mountains of the motherland."

     The former junior high school classmates together set out their first cycling journey from Hebei to China's northernmost county of Mohe in Heilongjiang Province in 2013.

    They remembered how unexperienced they were on the first cycling trip, as they carried lot of useless stuff like slippers and metal stools. They rode eight hours per day with three giant pieces of luggage.

  They prepared a tight budget of 4,000 yuan (582 U.S. dollars) per person to cover accommodation and food for 75 days. To save costs, they sometimes slept overnight in tents.

  "On the journey, we occasionally lavished on dining out or a good sleep in a small hotel, for example on birthday," Jinrui said.

  Despite the difficult conditions, they still enjoyed the picturesque sights.

  "My daughter gave me a digital camera. I took photographs on each journey," he said. Road signs, smiling kids and wildflowers were all caught on Jinrui's camera.

  In 2015, they commenced the tour with a retired professor who had heard their story.

  They spent 45 days riding through Hebei, Shandong, Henan, Shaanxi and Shanxi provinces.

  They had to go across numerous mountains, and had an unforgettable experience of cycling across the steep ascents of the Lyuliang mountain in Shanxi.

  Long and hard riding caused great damages to their bikes. Jinrui said he had to mend 13 punctures during the mountain ride.

  They visited the famous tourist attractions like the Temple of Confucius, the White Horse Temple and Terracotta Warriors, which they had long hoped to see.

  "We are glad to know that the tourist attractions offer free or half-price tickets for people over 60," Jinrui said.

  In the first half of this year, Jinrui and Deping cycled through nine provinces in 80 days to reach the country's southernmost province of Hainan.

  Along the way, the two northerners made many mistakes because of the language barriers when asking for directions. "We were also fined for riding on expressways twice due to failure to understand pedestrian instructions," Jinrui said.

  But they also got a lot of help from warm-hearted strangers. "They bought us drinks and assisted us in fixing bicycles," Jinrui recalled, adding that they were once lost in mountains, but two forest firemen accommodated them for free.

  Long-distance trips helped broaden their horizons and cultivate a more peaceful attitude toward the trivialities of daily life.

  "Frankly speaking, I used to get angry easily over disputes in our village. But now, I just find that many annoyances make no sense if I see them from a different perspective," Jinrui said.

  The health benefits of cycling are rewarding to the seniors. "I lost 9 kilograms when back from Hainan and my blood pressure is much more stable than it used to be," Jinrui said.

  Under their influence, many local farmers in Hebei have become cycling enthusiasts and started to travel by bike on their own. They find traveling is not as out of reach as they used to think.

  "Sometimes I check my WeChat moments and find that many of our villagers have cycled to places far away," Jinrui said.

  Recently, Deping was diagnosed with a serious disease, which ruined his ability to ride with Jinrui.

  "I know that Deping longs to hit the road again. I will continue to ride, realising our dream of cycling across China," Jinrui said.
