Throughout her journey, Shahid's path has been blocked by natural materials drying on the bike lanes. She's ridden around drying peanuts, branches, cotton nuts, and more. Shown here is poplar bark, which lined the bike lane for three kilometers (nearly two miles). "There were signs around pointing the way to a poplar demonstration forest," Shahid says. "I didn't go and I'm not sure what goes on there, but clearly the poplar is an important resource in the Jiangsu Province."
