City • Life • People’s Livelihood • Entertainment is about to celebrate the New Year.
Are everyone home? In recent days, there are still many people carrying large bags and small packages on the Spring Festival journey back home day and night Among them, there is a special team – “motorcycle army”.
They are a unique scenery in the Spring Festival transportation.
You may never notice them They go home by motorcycle Hundreds of thousands of migrant workers in the Pearl River Delta region of Guangdong Province ride motorcycles and embark on a journey back home in order to catch up with the Spring Festival They often have to ride hundreds of kilometers to return to Guangxi, Hunan, Jiangxi, Sichuan and other places for the Spring Festival after 10 hours of wind and rain You may wonder why they don’t take the train? Because many of them can’t get online, they can’t grab tickets on 12306, they don’t know what kind of acceleration package to sign in Some people think that the train ticket is too expensive, and the return fee for one person is several hundred, not to mention the ticket for a family? I’d better save some money and add a new dress to the children Some people live in mountainous areas because the mountain roads are rugged and difficult to walk.
If you have a motorcycle to go back and forth, it will be more convenient for relatives So every year on the eve of the Spring Festival, they will choose the most cost-effective way to return home by motorcycle! Villagers communicate with each other through QQ or WeChat.
They come together in groups on the appointed day.
They fill their motorcycles with oil, carry food, hot water, and large and small packages of New Year’s goods.
They start to leave before dawn with their wives and children Thousands of motorcycles are roaring along the road against the cold wind.
The scene is spectacular and burning They must wrap themselves tightly and look a little overweight.
Many people put a raincoat on the outside of their clothes and tie it into shoe covers with plastic bags to cope with cold weather and long journey They must stop and go to warm up because they will be tired and stiff after riding motorcycles for a long time If it is cold and rainy in winter, the road will be slippery and muddy ▲ This is the foot of the “knight” of the motorcycle army (figure/Oriental IC).
The weather is cold, the road is slippery, and they can’t see clearly.
If they are not careful, they will slip and fall down, and they will inevitably have a flat tire and break down Life and death on the endless cycling road or in a flash Everyone who can get home safely may have passed by the god of death They are like migratory birds, standing against the cold wind and bitter rain in winter, relying on a thin motorcycle, and trekking over mountains and mountains for a few days just to get together at home.
Even if they fall down on the road, even if the wind and snow are heavier, it doesn’t matter.
Because they know that at the end of the road there is someone waiting for them The warmth on the way back home by bike.
Every cyclist on the Spring Festival has his own story.
Even though the journey is long and hard, it is warm to have a lover, family and friends with him 1 On January 23, in Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province, Master Chen, 38, “the children are waiting for us at home”, got up at 4:00 in the morning.
He filled a drink bottle with a bottle of water, took two bottles of eight treasure porridge, tied up his already packed luggage, and got on the motorcycle.
He plans to ride a motorcycle with his wife back to his hometown in Guangxi for the Spring Festival.
Because he still failed to buy a train ticket after all his efforts.
The bus ticket is 400 yuan each, and the husband and wife are 800 yuan each way.
It costs 1600 yuan to go back and forth.
However, when riding a motorcycle home, the gas cost is up to 300 yuan per trip “It’s OK, the money saved can buy a lot of things for the children…” he said with a grin.
On January 25, in Foshan City, Guangdong Province, “She accompanied me on the way home…” Mr.
Wu, who also came from Guangxi, nearly fell down when their motorcycle got stuck in a puddle and skidded when they drove into Gaoming Gas Station.
Master Wu propped up the car with his feet and said awkwardly, “I’m used to it.
I can’t help tripping over several times all the way.” After parking the car and taking off the helmet, the couple’s face was red from the wind under their messy hair.
Without caring to clean the mud on the clothes, Master Wu’s wife immediately took out the thermos bottle from the back of the car, poured a cup of hot water and handed it to her husband.
“We have been working in Foshan for three years.
Although it is very hard to ride a motorcycle to go home for the New Year every year, we can save more than 700 yuan except for the fuel and food on the way.” A 27 year old rural boy from Ganzhou, Jiangxi Province, is helping the motorcycle army check vehicles at the gas station in Teng County, Wuzhou City, Guangxi, at the border of Guangdong and Guangxi.
This year, instead of riding a motorcycle home with fellow villagers for the Spring Festival, he chose to be a volunteer to serve the fellow villagers on their way home.
The gas station here allows the motorcycle army to refuel for free.
“That year, I came here to cheer like them, and now I have the opportunity to do something to help fellow villagers go home.” The young man said the reason for being a volunteer.
He knew that the journey home by bike was not easy.
“One time, he also rode home by motorcycle.
In the heavy rain, he didn’t bring a raincoat and his clothes were soaked, so he had to endure the pain to go to the gas station and run to the toilet to change his clothes.” He hoped that all the riders who rode home could get home safely..
