  • I'm sure quite a few people here were born here, but may simply prefer to use English. I don't think there is anything stopping you from typing in Chinese on this forum, although you may not get many responses. Note that the website titles are set up to be bilingual.

    However, if you feel more comfortable using Chinese, there are a few mainly Chinese-language cycling websites around too, like hkci.net. I have met quite a few Cantonese-speaking mountain bikers too.

    The Tai Lam Chung trail is the most fun in my (very limited) experience, but it's not that easy. The trail from Mui Wo to Chi Ma Wan is very scenic.

  • I type faster in English than Chinese and most of locals are bi-lingual and no problem :)

    Where about do you live? For Hong Kong Island East, you can join the Dragon's Back Sunday morning ride.

    This Sunday Sep 4 we're going to Tai Lam Country Park which is suitable for beginners like you and me.

    Pls post here if you're interested.

  • Chinese websites are very common for MTB. I have to rely on Google translate instead. Try hkmtb.com Good luck.

  • I bought a TREK 3500. But I am not quite sure if it can be on trail? because it's fork written only for XC. Also I don't know what kind of Bike is suitable for me......
