Cycling in Dongguan

骑行东莞

In recent years, cycling has become a more and more popular pastime and recreational sport in Dongguan, as the city provides excellent environment for the exercise. Dongguan has five forest parks which boast beautiful scenery and convenient bicycle paths. A green way which connects the city’s major tourist resorts is nearly finished, and is set to be bicycle only.

Venues for cycling

1. Songshan Lake

The Songshan Science and Industrial Park lies around the Songshan Lake, which perfectly balances science, technology and landscape. The 8-square-kilometer lake, surrounded by green hills, has fresh and clean air as well as flocks of birds that fly and tweet all around it. When the lake is covered by mist and drizzle, it resembles a bashful young maid looking through her veil.

Along the lake, there is the 42 kilometer Lakeside Road, full of greenery, lychee and other fruit trees. These roads are regarded as the best bicycle paths. All along the lakeside road, tiny colorful flowers display their beauty on a carpet of green grass, making visitors relax and unwind. If you find the place is too far to take your bicycle there, you can also rent one because the place also provides bicycle renting services.

2. Tongsha Ecological Park

As one of the five forest parks in Dongguan, Tongsha Ecological Park is located in the Southern part of the Dongcheng District of Dongguan City and connected to Guangchang Highway, with a convenient traffic flow and a magnificent view.

The place is the most popular venue for bicycle enthusiast in Dongguan. Competitions are held there from time to time.
