The Fourth Qinzhi Mountain Pathway Bike Tournament and the 2018 Folk Sport Carnival activities are to be held from June 26th to 30th in Fuxian County, Yan’an City, Shaanxi Province.

The tournament will begin on 30th at Zhangjiawan Town in Fuxian County. At the first stage, there will be three competing groups - the Men’s Elite Mountain Bike Group, the Men’s Master Mountain Bike Group, the Women’s Group - and one general beginner group, with an expected number of 1,500 participants. The total race is 41-kilometer long and the beginner’s lane is 16-kilometer.

Li Yanxia, the County Mayor of Fuxian, said at the press conference on 11th that the total length of the ancient Qinzhi Pathway is 700-kilometers of which 125 kilometers is located in Fuxian. Along the pathway, the landscape is diversified, the trees and grass are lush and few modern roads can be seen. The tournament will be challenging but the trip will be a beautiful journey, during which the bike lovers can embrace nature, feel the history and have a unique sporting experience.

It is the third consecutive year that the tournament will begin in Fuxian. Several changes have taken place in this year’s tournament, including an extra rank and an award for the local contestants in Yan’an, so as to encourage them to participate and to boost the sports development here.

Before the tournament, a Folk Sport Carnival will be held from 26th to 30th June which is based on the local sport resources in Yan’an, covering fishing, touring cars, camping, cycling, bonfire parties, and a red journey on the bikes to Zhiluo Town - a red tourist attraction.
