    Shek O Country Park - Dragon's Back trail

    Dragon's Back is the only MTB trail in Hong Kong Island. About 10 minutes drive from the nearest MTR station, 20 minutes uphill climb on a bike. It's about 6km offroad, short but very close to the city.

    It is a popular hiking trail so try to go on Saturday instead of Sunday. Go early too, say before 9am.

    I go there during weekends. Let me know if anyone need direction or a guide.

    Does anyone know whether bikes could be rented at Tung Chung? Thinking of some biking next weekend there.

    You have to jump on a minibus to get to the shop, as it's tucked away in a really obscure part of a remote housing estate. Instructions are on his website.

    He rents out basic mountain bikes (better than the usual Taipo deathtraps) and also has a selection of road bikes.

    Even in "this heat" it beats the crap out of air conditioned shopping malls

    Thanks. Will go to Tung Chung with a few friends next week to check it out.

    The first time you go there, you will be baffled by the obscure location. If you have trouble, call Sunny once you are at Yat Tung estate and he can direct/find you.

    I have seen one other bike store in the main part of the estate, but it's a bit crap and I don't think they do rentals.

    Air conditioned malls aren't that bad. 😜🇺🇸👍
