The Forest Management Bureau, in partnership with the National Bicycle Organization, organized the country’s first Bike Hike Plant activity last June 25, 2016 in celebration of the Bureau’s 153rd Anniversary. The event was envisioned as a moving forest, where bikers carry seedlings inside drawstring bags and then join hikers in planting these seedlings at the end of the bike trail. The event was participated by more than 500 professional bikers, fun riders and hikers coming from different organizations and government institutions.
