In recent years, Anlu has successively promoted integration of tourism with other industries. In this case, the general tourism pattern of “tourism + culture”, “tourism + agriculture” and “tourism + sports” is gradually formed. In Anlu, various sports activities spring up vigorously. Especially, cycle racing develops rapidly and more than 3000 people ride bikes throughout a year. This competition is the third consecutive bicycle challenge held in our city for participants from the whole province.
