  • Perhaps Glim was the new guy on a Scott carbon 29er? We're on our way out along the contour trail and the Scott carbon was going in.

    I think it is similar to the annual Tai Lam loop race where AFCD would not close the trail; there 're so many tourists, regular hikers, senior citizens, families carrying babies, children, various groups arriving in busload...if the trail is closed off, there'd be a riot! So AFCD would just leave it alone, even though there'd be risk arising from the race.

  • Yes, it is illegal for them to restrict access to any users. I don't remember exactly why at this time in the morning, but that is the state of affairs. That's why the offence MTBers are usually charged with is defined as bringing a bicycle into a country park unless the person is driving, using or in possession of the bicycle along a designated and marked road (I'm summarising here). This can lead to unfortunate consequences if someone needs to leave the park ASAP and via other than a designated road, due to injury etc.

    Now that you've mentioned it, yes I think that was him! The real name and the forum name are the same. Small world indeed.

  • Anyone doing the AA XC races? Chi Ma Wan on the 10th, Tai Lam Chung on the 11th. I think there may still be spaces available, especially if you just want to do 1 day, 1 lap rather than both days 1 or 2 laps of each.

  • Cool. Did 1 lap CMW today and it was good, but too technical for me on a hardtail, so I punctured twice which was bad. Walked the last few km with someone who had dislocated his shoulder, though, so there's always someone out there worse off than you! Was a good ride otherwise, though hot and ran out of water as didn't think I'd puncture...
