05 Jul DAHON Club Rides Hangzhou, China
DAHON clubs are booming across China, with folding bike owners meeting regularly for rides and socials. As leisure time, environmental and health awareness are on the up, cycling makes for the perfect pastime. Cities are expanding at breakneck pace, giving planners great opportunities to plan integrated bicycle infrastructure from the start.
DAHON recently coordinated a number of clubs across China to meet up a tour of Hangzhou. Staff met incoming riders at Hangzhou East station for the big event, heading first for a celebratory dinner. A night ride was planned for after dinner and despite heavy rain the group headed out in good spirits. First stop was Hangzhou’s DAHON brand store where riders were given the opportunity to test ride their pick of a large fleet of new models. Rain macs on and bikes checked by the store and DAHON mechanics, the crew headed out into the night. Riders commented that the rain was a blessing in disguise, with fresher air and fewer cars on the road.
The tour went on to take in Hangzhou’s famous East Lake, with plenty of photo ops along the way.
