Given Hong Kong’s reputation for skyscrapers and smog, it’s amazing how much and how enjoyable the cycling is here is in this busy city.
This ride is a great way to see the main sites of Hong Kong Island, with the reassurance of our local ride leaders to help guide you on the best and safest routes.
This ride includes Road Bike Rental Hong Kong, with other options and durations available by emailing us at info@GlobalCycleRides.com.
There is some city riding in traffic to start with, but very soon you are out in the winding roads and undulating hills. The hills are at a nice steady gradient and offer some great cycling past lush green mountainsides with stunning seafront views on the way to the well known Shek-O Beach.

Daniel – Hong KongI got into road cycling when I moved to Hong Kong in 2011, still not sure how I ended up in the racing scene, I never intended to but love it. Since then I have participated in anything from local 20min crits to 5 stage multi day amateur races in Thailand and the Philippines. I’m proud of those achievements but the real joy I get from cycling is climbing the hills, the camaraderie with other cyclists, exploring and occasionally getting lost. You can be sure of getting 3 of those 4 on a ride with me, hopefully not the later and if we do I’ll be sure to distract you with some anecdote or boring fact about the surrounding area while I fire up the GPS! Seriously though Hong Kong is pretty small, we can’t get THAT lost…
Rupert – Hong KongI have lived in Hong Kong for the last 40 years and know it like the back of my hand, which helps greatly when leading rides as I can make use of "secret" traffic free sections and short-cuts. As a child I rode on BMX and then road bikes. I am co-founder of Project852, which is a Hong Kong based all-inclusive Bike racing team which participates in all of the major races in Asia. Riding 15,000km per year is not unusual for me! I did my first triathlon in 2001 and continued until 2012 before moving into pure bike racing which took me to many Asian Bike races including qualification for the UCI Granfondo World Champs in Niseko in 2016. I work in website development, a major shift from my earlier career in wildlife rehabilitation. I enjoy leading groups and happily ride with cyclists of all speeds.
