Macau and Zhuhai jointly organize cycling trip
The neighboring cities of Macau and Zhuhai will jointly organize a cycling trip to Zhuhai this month. Registration started yesterday.
In accordance with the World Car-Free Day, held on Sept 22, the Environmental Protection Bureau (DSPA) announced that the authorities will continue to hold the event with Zhuhai.
The total distance covers some 26 miles, along seaside bicycle lanes. Famous sites such as the Zhuhai Fisher Girl statue, the Lover Road and the Yeli Islands are also included in the trip.
The event will start at 8 a.m. on Sep 22 and end approximately 2 p.m. A free meal is provided after the cycling, DSPA told the Times. A quota of one hundred spots are available for Macau residents, who will also be joined by Zhuhai cyclists on that day.
Residents aged 15 and above can register for the trip. All participants are required to bring their own bicycles and pay MOP50 as a down payment, which will be refunded after the cycling trip, said the Bureau.
The cycling trip is organized by DSPA and Zhuhai Environmental Protection Bureau, with co-organization from the Cycling General Association of Macau (AGCM) and Zhuhai cycling association.
The annual event began in 2011, when cycling routes were created in Zhuhai. Last year, the trip was organized in Macau.
Residents can go to the AGCM’s office in Taipa for registration from today, and must bring copies of their ID and their Mainland Travel Permit. Vacancies will be filled on a first come first served basis.
The World Car-Free Day encourages motorists to give up their cars for a day. Organized events are held in a variety of cities and countries. The events, which vary by location, give motorists and commuters an idea of their locality with fewer cars. China joined the World Car-Free day in 2001.
