(VOV) - More than 100 people will join the 36-day ‘Hanh Trinh Xanh’ (Go Green) cycling event scheduled to travel through 26 provinces in Vietnam between July 2 and August 8.
This was announced by the Institute of Oriental Studies in Hanoi on June 10.
The tour aims to raise public awareness of traffic safety and environmental protection.
Along the way, participants will help build 10km of rural roads and plant six hectares of forest in the central coastal region and southwestern provinces.
They will also present gifts to 30 families and victims of Agent Orange dioxin.
Four such trans-Vietnam cycling tours have been successfully organized from 2008-2011.
