Prince Saud bin Nahar bin Saud on Wednesday witnessed the signing of a memorandum of cooperation between the Green Taif Organization, represented by its chairman, Saad bin Ayed Al-Otaibi, and the Green Horizons Environmental Association, represented by board member Saad bin Rabah Al-Ajmi.

It will also implement training courses in relation to the environment, preserving its development and sustainability, and implementing initiatives, campaigns and awareness-raising activities.

Meanwhile, more than 1,000 bicycles have been awarded to participants of road safety and cycling courses in Saudi Arabia’s AlUla to mark the opening of a new 45 km cycle path on Wednesday.

Members of the AlUla Cyclists Club made up just part of the 200-strong group of cyclists competing in a race as part of the ceremony, as well as people living locally, Saudi state news agency SPA reported.

There were also 150 students using paths designed to enhance the skills of cyclists at all levels.

The cycle path forms part of the AlUla Vision and sports sector strategy that aims to develop activities that improve people’s quality of life and increase the number of people taking part in sporting activites as well as the number of international competitions.
