Spring Cycling Tour - Macao to Dongguan

Jointly organised by the Macao Sport Development Board and Macao Cycling Association, the Cycling Tour from Macao to Dongguan took place on 24th April, starting at Dr. Sun Yat Sen Municipal Park in Macao. Nearly 200 residents participated; aged between 15 and 60 years.

Cycling tours are a wholesome sport-for-all activity. They not only promote physical fitness, but also offer an opportunity to tour the countryside, breathe fresh air and learn something new. As a result, this event is very popular and has been held annually for the past ten years. It remains one of the favourite sport-for-all activities amongst the public.

Cyclists assembled at 8:30 am at the Sun Yat Sen Municipal Park in Macao and set out to Shijie, Dongguan, through Gongbei, Cuiheng Village and Zhang Jia Bian, Zhongshan. After having lunch at Zhang Jia Bian, the cyclists arrived at the destination of Shijie, Dongguan by evening, where they stayed overnight. The next day, the cyclists followed the same return route to Gongbei. Total cycling distance was 109 kilometres.
