    Question Downhill Mountain Biking Hong Kong

    Hey guys,

    Does anybody know where I can get some quality downhill mountain bike at a reasonable price here in HK? Or do you know anyone who wants to sell theirs?

    Also, is there any DH MTB group/ organization here in HK that goes out for a trail ride regularly? I would love to join.

    You will need to get a permit first:

    And I can't think of many of the mountain bike trails where you can go downhill without first going uphill!

    Check out Welcome to the Hong Kong Mountain Bike Association

    Lots of general and trail info there, and they also have a forum.

    And I can't think of many of the mountain bike trails where you can go downhill without first going uphill!
    They often call a man with a van. It has been explained to me as a lot of fun, but I personally don't see the point in going uphill with a van, downhill on the bike, rinse, repeat. Sounds like cheating and only half the fun to me

    Keep in mind you're not allowed to take your bike on the MTR. Annoying, but makes sense. I would think buses are the same. That's a big consideration if you live far from trails. That's why I always rent.

    Horrible! Zero integrity in that.

    You could say that real men go uphill too ;-)
