    Road Cycling in HK

    Hi Guys,

    I'll shortly be going to HK to work on a Project in Tseung Kwan O, and I would like if at all possible to take my MTB along to use as a commuter bike during the week, then hit some trails on the weekend. I think it would drive me crazy having to get the MTR everyday, plus i'd drive the other commuters crazy on the return leg, smelling of sweat and leachate !

    For those already riding in HK, I'd be grateful if you could give answers on the following:

    1. Is it legal to ride on the road on HK island ?
    2. Is it legal to ride on the road on NT side ?
    3. Is it possible to go through the tunnels with a bike?
    4 . How safe is it in HK. For eg, can you leave your bike outside a shop, pop in, return and it still be there ? (no guarantees..... )

    I haven't started looking for hotels yet - I'll be staying for 4 - 8 weeks so I might look for a small unit if it is possible to rent on a monthly basis. If going through the tunnel to HK Island isn't possible then that may decide the location.

    Thanks,


    KPH

    1. Is it legal to ride on the road on HK island ?


    Yes (probably with limits on major expressways though I have not checked and it would be crazy anyway)

    2. Is it legal to ride on the road on NT side ?

    Generally yes.

    3. Is it possible to go through the tunnels with a bike?

    No.

    4 . How safe is it in HK. For eg, can you leave your bike outside a shop, pop in, return and it still be there ? (no guarantees..... )

    Extremely safe compared to the US/UK. I do it quite frequently. Maybe a tiny bit less so in areas that have a lot of bike commuting going on.


    Check this: Welcome to the Hong Kong Mountain Bike Association. There are other forums for road riding.
    Since when did the phrase "invest in" come to mean the same as "buy"?
