Hi Steve,

I too would like to come on the Tai Lam trip, I live in Cheung Sha and was going to bike over the hill and then take the ferry to Tuen Mun.

Do you know if it is easy to get from the ferry to where you are meeting as have not been over there before.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

The loop's about 14km, a third of it is sealed road but it does at least get most of the hills out the way.

The prison entrance is fairly easy to find me and Graham will probably meet you at the barrier we might drive up if we're allowed in:

Full suss for comfort, hardtail for speed, either's good, some good bouncy stuff near the end though. -Be good to see you again Graham!

Cool. I'll try and find the prison (see it from the main road so can't be that hard) and see you there at 9.30. No worries about the bike - question is which one to get out of its box after the move up here - the hardtail or the full susser??
How long's a loop of tai lam, or does that depend on the route - I see there are various ways to link it up?
phone is 91322013

Hi Steve
I would be keen to join the ride this Saturday too, and could meet at the 9.30am location at the Prison.
Got my new bike too, so keen to get it dirty !
See you then

Great, I can probably pick up 4 riders from Tsing Yi Station which is your best bet coming from the Island or most parts of kowloon.

Lets say 9am at Tsing Yi MTR Exit 'C'

If you want to meet at the location then Siu Lam Prison entrance is probably the best place at 9:30ish.

Let me know if you need a bike I can rent Giant Anthems or XTC's for HK$250

If your definately coming just email/PM me your phone number.

Hi Folks,

Well i've still got this Saturday free, anyone fancy joining me for a lap of Tai Lam near the Gold Coast? All levels welcome, very steady pace, might even be able to arrange a pick up at Tsing Yi on a first come first served basis.

Hi Kev,

We were just about to pull the trigger and announce our first HKMBA group or social ride when our social director had a very nasty stack on the Rocky Horror that resulted in a hospital visit and an decree of rest from docs. Hoping to get this ride sorted in the future. Bikesteve was planning to help the beginners with some coaching too... Hopefully we can get this off before the heat returns.

did anything come out of the plans for group rides for newbies to HKG? I'm still to give my treads a taste of HKG trails... and it looks like theres a growing bunch interested in getting started. Eitherway, hope to hit the trails this coming weekend, just hope the weathers as sweet as it turned out yesterday.... anyone going out from anywhere around gold coast I'd appreciate any chance of linking up....

I moved back to HK after a 17 year stint in the Fatherland that is England, where I actually graduated from BMXes to Road Bikes (sue me!) however I'm looking to get an MTB (always borrowed friends' bikes back in Blighty) after all these years as Hong Kong seems to have a cycling scene that's approaching critical mass. I should have an MTB sourced from deepest Yorkshire by the end of this month, so would be more than happy to catch up with any body for rides (and rope my girlfriend in as well, choosing an MTB for her is much easier!). :)
