Click the blue words to pay attention to “Civilized Beijing” in the sub center of Beijing.
Starting from the urban Green Heart Forest Park, you can ride past the canal wharf, enjoy the beautiful scenery along the Grand Canal, and enjoy the comfort of the autumn wind…
This is one of the routes favored by Gao Qingguo, a Beijing citizen.
“Cycling has become an indispensable part of my life.
I can feel the development and changes of the city when I ride in the urban area, and I can visit the natural beauty in the suburbs.
It not only exercises my body, relaxes my mood, but also makes many new friends,” said Gao Qingguo.
In recent years, cycling has become increasingly popular, with more and more activities and more participants.
In addition to the charm of cycling itself, the improvement of public health awareness, the promotion of sports events, the improvement of urban environment, and the improvement of cycling facilities are all important factors to form the “riding craze”.
△ Ten years before the opening of the canal riding season in the city’s sub center in the Green Heart Forest Park, there was a large chemical factory in the area where the Green Heart Forest Park was located.
It has become today’s “hot land for cycling” after the land for chemical plants has been vacated and new green has been planted.
Including this chemical plant, Beijing has withdrawn about 3000 general manufacturing and pollution enterprises in the past decade, and promoted two rounds of afforestation and greening of one million mu.
In the past decade, China has taken unprecedented measures to promote pollution prevention and control.
The ecological environment has improved significantly, and people’s sense of gain has increased significantly.
“The sky is blue, the water is clear, and the air is fresh.” This is Gao Qingguo’s greatest feeling of riding in the past decade.

Xinhua News Agency (Liu Yu/photo) In recent years, Beijing has continuously improved the travel quality of slow traffic by formulating planning standards, strengthening environmental improvement of slow traffic system, innovating bicycle priority signs and other measures.
The Action Plan for Comprehensive Traffic Control in Beijing in 2022 proposes that by the end of 2022, the proportion of green travel in the central urban area of Beijing will reach 74.6%.
During the “Fourteenth Five Year Plan” period, all roads with a width of 12 meters or more within the Fifth Ring Road in Beijing will be provided with bicycle lanes.

Li Xin, a reporter from Xinhua News Agency, took a photo of the “riding craze” rising, which reflects the positive response of more and more people to the green and low-carbon lifestyle.
In 2021, the proportion of slow traffic trips in the central urban area of Beijing will reach 47.8%, a new high in the past decade.
Since this year, the number of bike sharing riders in Beijing alone has reached 601 million, and the average daily number of riders has exceeded 2.28 million.
The warm tip of civilized cycling is that the “riding craze” is warming up.
Come and join the civilized low-carbon life! “Civilized Beijing” reminds you that when you join the cycling army to create a green and low-carbon life, you should also pay attention to the riding standards and work together to create a good road traffic order to make our city closer to civilization.
