Anyone for Riding - Sai Kung West Country Park

6 years 10 months ago #2150 by samg
Hi I'm relatively new to Sai Kung - and looking for riding partners. Just got my permit last week, and ready to hit the 12km stretch in SK Park. I don't have a fancy bike - but it'll manage fine as long as there aren't any drops or excessive speed. I can do weekends or weekdays with some notice. Let me know by reply or give me a call 5372 1151. also up for casual road rides to explore the area or get in shape. cheers, sam

Hi Sam,
Are you're still looking for a cycling partner in Sai Kung? What rides have you done in the past? I'm up for some mountain biking and looking to ride with someone in my pace range. I'm usually available on the weekdays with no regular schedule. Email me if you want to do some cycling.

Hi Sabrina & Dave - i'm in san francisco this week. Should be back the week of the 5th. how about we tentatively plan a ride on the 10th morning? to answer your question sabrina i have done no riding in HK, except renting a bike one afternoon on lantau, and i'm not a regular rider. i did training rides in college with the mtn bike team but just for fun, and i used to ride in british columbia in the summer's, but not the extreme trails. mostly i just want to get off the pavement and explore. sam

Hi Sam

I think I should let you know my cycling level. I am a local and just a newbie and have never tried off-road. I just started regular cycling for about two months. I bought a Taiwan made MTB (shown in the picture). It only has front suspension.

I am fit enough to ride from Kowloon Lai Chi Kok (where I live) to Hong kong Aberdeen Sports Playground and back. I know it because I have done it twice. But really I don't have off-road training and skills.

I usually have soccer game on Saturday mornings and so is Dec 10th. I could join if you can start at 11am. And I can go weekdays too.

Dave

dave - i think your bike is nicer than mine... should be fine for trails around here.

i can't guarantee what kind of trails we might find or how technical they are since i have not been on them. if you have a healthy sense of adventure, reasonable fitness, and decent balance i'm sure you'll be ok! won't know until you try. lets see what sabrinas schedule is like and we'll see what works. sam

I might be ok unless there is last minute customer request meeting. How much time do you expect the whole ride will take?
