Floating bike riding service runs as recreational activity on Ayeyawady River

People can enjoy the beauty of nature in the autumn season by riding floating bicycles in the Ayeyawady River at Myitkyina, Kachin State. Starting on 17 December, visitors can enjoy a fun ride starting from the bank of the Ayeyawady River near the Sipinthaya jetty to the middle island.
The floating bicycle service was opened in 2020 and a lot of residents took an interest in it. The business was shut down in 2021 due to the COVID-19 outbreak and it is currently back in service. Floating bike rental service will be available only between 9 am to 4 pm during December, the opening season, said U Seng Khun, an owner of the Dolphin Hydro Bike (floating bicycle).
Riders must wear a life jacket for their safety. If something happens in the middle of the water, the whistle installed in the life jacket can be used to call for help. Plans are being made to carry out rescue operations by boats and monitoring programmes are also being planned for visitors.
The Dolphin Hydro Bike (floating bicycle) have 30 floating bikes for rent, and the rental fee for the mono bike and duo bike cost K3,000 and K5,000 per 30 minutes respectively. — Kachin State IPRD/CT
