While using Google Earth to plan our route from China to Italy, I discovered that it can record a flyover of a preset route and export it as a video. So I decided to make a video flyby of the bicycle tour that my friend Sander and I did in 2014: 434 mountainous kilometers from Lijiang to Deqin in China's Yunnan Province. The blue line you see in the video is generated from GPS data that Sander recorded with his phone. I added distance and elevation data from Google Earth to the video but the elevation data may be off due to the China GPS offset problem. Then I spliced in some photos I took during the trip. My talented friend Jake provided the soundtrack.
