Cycling routes and bike maps in and around
Modern Hong Kong is located in South China and is a special administrative zone of China. Although one would thinks that cycling in midst of skyscrapers and crowds of people is quite difficult, there are actually many beautiful cycling trails along the Shing Mun River shore and through the Nam Seng Wai wetlands, whereby many more cycle routes can be found with the bike route planner. Mountain bikers can climb the surrounding peaks like High Junk Peak or Sharp Peak and enjoy the gorgeous view on the sea or on the lit-up city.
