Feeling good

Race day jitters and three hours in oppressive heat wasn't enough to stop bob smith from having a great day at the action asia tai lam reservoir enduro

Iam standing on the start line of the AAE Tai Lam MTB race, nervous energy is building up, already sweating. Adrenalin is running through my veins, the heart rate is high. I have been here before...

CEDD has released a Request for Proposal to qualified contractors to perform a feasibility study on building mountain bike trails on South Lantau Island.

HKMBA has been working closely with CEDD to provide advice and input in order to assure that the best possible mountain bike trail options are implemented. 

The process for this project is as follows:

- Government will accept proposal responses from qualified consultants in the next month. They will then review the responses to determine the best qualified company.

- Once a bidder is chosen a one year in field study will be  conducted to look at an array of options for trails as well as coordinating with AFCD, local village, community and environmental interests.

- Study is submitted to CEDD who will then review the response and determine if the project will move forward

- If all goes well trail construction will begin

 

The  estimated time frame for this process is 18-24 months until actual construction of trails is completed

This project represents a unique opportunity for Mountain Bikers as this is the first mountain bike trail building project that  CEDD has lead and the first time bikers are actively involved in the planning process. The budget has been approved and we are moving forward. 

If anyone wants to get involved with this project or can offer advice or council please contact us.

No pain, no gain

 

bob smith was dreading the killer climbs and 5 hour expanse of the race but pushed through the pain and exhaustion to a podium finish. he tells us how he did it

Down at the starting area there was a frantic rush to get into position, jostling for a vantage place, the air was thick with anticipation. Suddenly in this maelstrom of madness the starter goes and we are off a surge of man and machine push forward...
