I’ve cycled from Guangxi, Yangshuo to Chengdu (2400km in 2 months). So I have some experience cycling long distances, although it was my first time. But doing 220km a day is not something that’s realistic when you continue for several days or weeks. You’ll carry (a lot) of stuff, so it’s harder than cycling during a day trip.

I did it slow though, so I’m sure you can do it faster if you want to. But I’d say you’d do 60-140km a day. 60 when there are steep hills/ mountains and over a 100 if it’s flat or just a few climbs.

Not sure how far Lijiang is, but I’m sure it will take some time as there are some huge mountains there.
