As a newcomer its definately worth investing in elbow, knee pads & gloves not just for this trail but all in HK.
Falling is all part of learning process, which takes the form of tenatively pushing your limits seeing what both you and the bike are capable of.
Wearing pads can actually increase confidence in this respect as you know its not going to hurt quiet as much if you do find yourself sliding off the trail.
Most bike shops sell a wide range, as well as Motocycle shops apparently at good prices if you know where to look.

Should be able to make it. Have a red Deuter backpack. Look forward to it! Now I need to go find some elbow/knee guards.

The trail is slippery after all the rainfall. We'll go slow as there are a few guys joining for the first time.

No worry if you cant find elbow/shin guards at the moment, we'll walk the bike thru rock garden instead of ploughing thru it :)

Safety first!
