10th Tour de Hunan Cycling Race Final

The “Yuntai Mountain Cup” 10th Tour de Hunan Cycling Race final will take place on November 4 on Yuntai Mountain, Anhua County, Yiyang Ciyang.

Initiated in 2004 by Chen Jianmin, an amateur cycling coach, the Tour de Hunan Cycling Race has developed into the largest provincial event for amateur cyclists in China.

Chen hoped to promote cycling and Hunan tourist attractions by organizing long-distance bike tours, and called for a low-carbon lifestyle nationwide.

Compared with the previous sessions, the 2017 Race set new records in both winner and grouping numbers.

The total reward of 100,000 yuan will be given to 200 winners. Now the number of applicants has exceeded 300. The registration will be ended on October 28 with 500 estimated participants.

The Yuntai Mountain Shenxianyan Scenic Area boasts various tourism resources including dam project, rock climbing, hotspring, and stilted buildings. Its sightseeing plank road and glass walkway are open to the public.
