YW, I recall(last year) that one of the riding buddy drove up the small road and parked on the parking spots on the left-hand side. While we were unloading the bikes, an officer politely asked us to park at the parking space around the corner (where you parked your car last time).

Every sunday morning when I climb up the small road, the parking spot around the corner is always empty. Of course, there is risk that one of the CSD official may call the traffic cop and get the non-CSD vehicle ticketed.

There's a public carpark on Shek O road so that would be fine.

Can you go this Sunday morning? I'm going to test drive my Meta 6, hehe.

Ang, just to clarify, this morning I got told (very politely) by a CSD officer that the public generally can't park there.

Anyway, one can always risk it on Cape Collinson Road. There's also a public carpark about 3-4km away from the trailhead.

Thanks Ang. Didn't go up the road as it says it is CSD territory but may have a look. See you soon, hopefully!

Didnt check this forum until now...

It is the same small road that goes to prision / Dragon's Back.

There're a couple parking spot next to the curb on the small road.

Beware of the weather tho, if it rains just when I head out, no go.

Not sure how many guys are going to show up at HFC MTR so I'll wait until 08:40 and probably make it to the trail head at 09:15

Ang, am interested in going as have gotten leave to go from the wife. Will drive, may need to give others a lift, but if not, I can take 1 other bike (2 at a push as long as they are not 29ers) on my car rack.

EDIT: Just checked out McDonald's outside HFC MTR, Cape Collinson Rd., and Shek O Rd. There's nowhere I can stop within sight of the McDonald's to stick another bike on the rack (have to go down the road and around the corner). Can't see any legit parking spots close to the trailhead, so I'll park either on the parking spot around Shek O Rd. about 2km from the trailhead, or, uh, somewhere else. I'll try and be at the top of the stone steps mentioned in the guide by around 9am (I ride a Trek Remedy).

Ang, is the small road you mention the road which is south of Cape Collinson Road and east of Shek O Road, but north of the orange trail (on the finder)?

Anyone interested going to Tai Lam Country Park on a Sunday morning?

There must be a total of 4 riders in order to make the trip coz it is about HK300 one way. Fewer than 4 riders would make the transportation too expensive. Five riders would be too crowded in a Van.

We'll go from Chai Wan to the Tai Lam Country Park and will pick you up along the way.

Leave a post here if you're interested.

You can drop a note at the Hong Kong Mountain Bike Association forum too.

How to transport full size bike on subway?
1) Before entering the gate, take off the front wheel and carry the bike & front tire into the platform.
2) Take either the first or last carriage to avoid the crowds
