A four-month cycling tour with an itinerary of 99 stations in southern Taiwan's Changhua County got off to a rolling start on June 19.

The event is aimed at encouraging citizens to adopt healthy, sustainable lifestyles as well as raise awareness of the importance of protecting the environment, said the Changhua County Police Bureau, the event's organizer.

Participants receive a "travel pass" that allows them to collect stamps at each of the 99 locations, including 21 scenic spots or historic sites.

Police officers are taking part in the event to help promote awareness of fraud, drug abuse prevention and teenager protection, with 77 police stations included in the itinerary.

County Magistrate Cho Po-yuan said Changhua is known as a bicycle industry stronghold, and the county has the highest density of bicycle riders.

Cho said he hopes the event will help improve family relations and strengthen ties between the community and the police.
