Beijing’s first bicycle-only road, which had just opened on Friday morning, became a stage for public welfare and love on June 2.

At 10 o’clock in the morning, more than 300 voluntary cyclists gathered on the bicycle-only road to participate in a public welfare cycling activity, which called on the public to care about deaf-mutes’ life and employment.

Jointly initiated by the Beijing Huilongguan and Tiantongyuan community public welfare foundation and the China Volunteer Service Foundation, the event aims to give support for the employment of the hearing-impaired by opening a “Quiet restaurant”, developing a vocational skills training system for hearing-impaired people and establishing an effective platform for the disabled to fit into the society and to be reemployed.

Apart from personal donation, each voluntary cyclist contributed to the donation of the philanthropic enterprise “Quiet restaurant” by completing a cycling task, with the total amount of the donation up to 500,000 yuan (72,441.7 U.S dollars).

“I came here after I had known about the event’s purpose. Today after I had a close contact with the hearing-impaired people, I felt it more sure that I should help the disabled people find jobs and fit into the society,” said a team leader of a cycling club in the Huilongguan and Tiantongyuan area, adding that 30 cyclists of his club took part in the event.
