TVB Episode Highlights the Challenges of Cycling in HK

Pearl Report episode "Bikers Burden" reveals that HK has enormous potential for cycling but lacks  Infrastructure and supporting government policy

Watch the episode here:

Kudos to Eric Chan of the Tai Lam CP AFCD for being the lone government official to be interviewed for this show. You will also see a few members of the HKMBA team including Kenneth Lam, Steve Coward (aka bikesteve), and Pierre Le Magnan, owner of Chiru Bikes.

Riders will be happy to know that the MTR will let you take your bikes on their trains provided you remove your front wheel. Its an inconvenience as Martin Turner points out but it opens up the potential of safely exploring Hong Kong by bike.

Enjoy the show..


Trail Springs Eternal

For the first time in a decade, HKMBA volunteers joined forces with AFCD and others to build new trails in Tai Lam Coutry Park this past weekend.

If ever anyone needed a visual example in arguing that nothing is impossible, they would need to look no further than beyond the flagstone steps leading from Route Twisk to the "official" Mountain Bike trail at Tai Mo Shan. What seemed like a lost cause mere weeks ago is back on track - we are finally seeing the beginnings of a proper trail system, purpose-built for mountain biking, in Tai Lam Country Park.
