Route 

As on all the previous rides, we will follow a route that keeps as close to the harbour as possible. This year has a few changes, such as the new Lung Wo Road from Tamar to Fenwick Pier. (It’s nearer to the harbour than the old road. )

This route identified will be used for the communication with police force and in the marshal rehearsal with them. A final ride route will be announced shortly before the ride date. The marshal team will also be guiding you along the whole journey for any help you need.


TRAIN TRAVEL

Bikes are allowed on Tung Chung line, East Rail and Ma On Shan Line. It’s safest with the wheel on; if you are asked to take it off, maybe explain that.

On West Rail, you take your chances.  This is wrong and bad and unfair, and HKCAll is working hard to reverse it as soon as possible.

Bikes on the underground lines are mostly ok in normal times, though probably not actually allowed. (Move smoothly and courteously, and take your helmet off.) However with so many cyclists around, MTR staff may be alert and stop you. Only try it if you are ready to have that discussion.

LIGHTS

If you will be cycling home after the ride, you’ll need lights. Sunset is 6pm, and police will likely stop you if you are not illuminated.
