Among the highlights of the event was the participation of the Royal Danish Consulate General in Guangzhou, which organized the "Ride for a Green Guangzhou" biking event. Cycling enthusiasts, diplomats, and representatives from various countries embarked on a scenic route, starting from Lumina, the location of the Royal Danish Consulate General, and winding through iconic landmarks such as Haizhu Square, Sacred Heart Cathedral, and the historic streets of Guangzhou. The bike ride culminated on Shamian Island, where participants were greeted with Danish delicacies and beverages, courtesy of Carlsberg, Evita Peroni, and Ovodan.
