Discovering Hong Kong by bike

For anyone who would be inspired by the Cyclothon, Hong Kong offers many opportunities for bike rides throughout its territory. An essential route is found in the New Territories: a 55-kilometer track which connects Tuen Mun to Sha Tin. Along the way, cyclists can discover some of the destination’s rich cultural history, with the trail providing easy access to ancient temples and historic monuments, all set against a backdrop of breathtaking scenery.
