I can ride at anytime. Don't want to go too early but can also go anywhere as long as I can figure out the transportation part.

Cheers
PK

Big THANK YOU to StanlyJ, had a great day yesterday in Tai Lam. What was it 40 km on trails.


Bit like night-hiking... I'm of the view it's okay with adequate lights. If the AFCD are worried people having an accident at night and not being "found", that can just as well happen during broad daylight. I see at least a group of bikers every night coming out of Ho Pui... sometimes roadies, sometimes MTBers.

As for the ride yesterday, no worries PK. I'm pretty whacked from it still... according to the GPS it was 43km in total... and a guestimate of about 30km of pure trail. Ouch!

Kind of knew it was a long shot.

Do you mean " evening" rides, as in with the opposite sex or another form of mtb activities....if its the latter I could be persuaded ;)

Would love to join, but I think mid-week daytime is out of reach for me (as it is for most people).

"Evening" rides can be good fun.

Good olde HM!

How about this then... come over to Ho Pui village with your car+bike Monday morning (~10am?), you can park the car at my place, share a van up to Route Twisk, find HM and help out a bit, then ride out back to Ho Pui... perhaps with a few cheeky goes on the new trail. Can do a little detour back up to Tin Fu Tsai on the way down going round Ho Pui Reservoir. Easily back home before dinner.

As for messaging... I think if you visit the user profile page... it is still possible to send an email from that?
