Intrepid World Unicyclist, Ed Pratt, is in Sichuan province, China, approaching the capital Chengdu.
He is presently travelling with Will 'SuperCyclingMan' Hodson riding across China.
Will is also riding around the world, only his plan is to ride across all 7 continents over the span of 5 years wearing his superhero outfit — a long flowing cape and red pants outside of his trousers.
For the next couple of weeks they'll be sticking together over some of the highest and coldest mountains they've ever faced. 33,000m of elevation over 1000km!
