From London to New York, Taiwan to Singapore, cycling has become all the rage for zipping around cities with ease. In Hong Kong commuter cycling is rare, if not non-existent. Will Hong Kong ever change its policies towards cycling in the city?
At first glance, road riding in Hong Kong seems petrifying: Narrow streets, steep hills and inescapable heat and humidity make for an interesting challenge. Fortunately, most drivers are reasonably accommodating to make the traffic safer than it looks, and with challenging terrain and some stunning scenery, a cyclist in Hong Kong will be pleasantly surprised.
