    if friends rent a family bike at tai wai, can they return the bike at tai po? or do they have to return to the same shop in tai wai to return it? thanks.

    Why not rent a shared bike from Gobee? Let's embrace the shared economy.

    Just download the ofo or gobee app (there are a couple of others too) and pick up one of them. You can pick it up wherever you see one (the app has a map of where they are) and just leave it when you finish with it (try not to leave it somewhere that's silly though).

    These are a great way to hire bikes now in HK. I did this yesterday in Lantau - found one in a village and cycled the last 5 km of my hike, since I don't really enjoy that bit of the hike. Cycling is cooler than hiking because you generate your own breeze (provided you don;t try and cycle uphill lol).

    My 34 min / 5.5 km ride cost HKD 10.....
