Under the guidance of the Ministry of Health and Sports, the Myanmar Cycling Federation and the Mandalay Region Sports and Physical Education Department jointly organized a mass cycling activity in Mandalay yesterday morning.
The event was held with the aim of drawing public attention in cycling and ensuring national physical activities. Over 380 amateur cyclists including regional lawmakers, departmental officials, local people and students from the Institute of Sports and Physical Education participated in the event, the 24th during the past two years.
The race commenced at 5:30 am in front of the office of Mandalay City Development Committee, with a pistol shot announcing the start of the event by the principal of the Institute of Sports and Physical Education U Myo Myint Aung. Donors distributed soft drinks to participants.
The mass cycling event is being organized during the last week of every month as a community activity in Mandalay.—Tin Maung (Mandalay Sub-printing House)
