SHANGHAI, May 7 (Xinhua) -- The 30th China International Bicycle Fair kicked off in Pudong, Shanghai on Wednesday, drawing more than 1,000 enterprises to participate.
Covering a total area of 135,000 square meters, the exhibition set up 6,000 booths for more than 1,000 exhibitors.

The number of export orders of the country's bicycle industry has increased significantly since 2020, as cycling has become more popular worldwide due to the impact of COVID-19.
The association expects China's bike output to reach 80 million units this year, and exports of the industry to grow by around 10 percent.
