Hey guys !

Anyone else here for something more thrilling that just the typical family street ride in NT ? I mean more like mountain biking style, downhill...

Let's team up !

Cheers,
John

I never cycle from Tai Wai to Kowloon. Do you mean thru Tai Po Road?

Yeah Edwin, that's exactly what I would to try in HK, one of those mountain bike trails !

I actually asked for the free permit last summer but have not used it yet. I don't have a bike in HK as I might not end up by staying here for work, not sure yet... Does anyone know if it is possible to rent a good mountain bike for the day and arrange some transport to one of those trails ? Or maybe rent a bike close to one of those trails ?
