The Hydraulic Engineering Office (HEO) will hold the “Duckling Slow Ride 4” in the afternoon of November 28. This time, the “ducklings” taking part in the event will have a chance to ride around an entire sand bar.
There is an opening for 350 elementary schoolers to take part in the ride. Those registered at the website ( https://reurl.cc/zzodKp) before 5 PM on November 17 will be entered on a raffle to determine the final results.
Furthermore, the 2020 program includes a new category for 54 kids from 4 to 6-year-olds to travel on pushbikes (registration site: https://reurl.cc/Xkp0pE). Results of the raffle will be posted on the Chinese Facebook fan page of HEO on November 20.
According to the HEO, each edition of the Duckling Slow Ride takes place held at different riverside areas. This year, Shezidao, which is effectively a sand bar in the shape of a duck’s head, has been selected as the venue. The distance of circling Shezidao is roughly 9 kilometers, which is significantly longer than past courses. However, the route boasts a beautiful landscape with a rich ecosystem, allowing parents and kids to enjoy their slow ride along the river scene.
The main venue of the event is located right beneath Shezi Bridge, which has become vastly popular as a recreational area for families over the past 2 years. There will be activities and performances at the site, including balloon show, sing-alongs, and BMX freestyle show. The organizers have also set up 2 rest areas for participants along the way, providing services ranging from first aid to tire pumps.
