Cycling has been a distinctive feature in Sha Tin and is very popular among people living in or outside Sha Tin. The first cycling track in Sha Tin was opened to public in 1981, running along Tolo Highway to Tai Po. To tie in with the development of Ma On Shan, the cycle track is extended to Ma On Shan.

I like the part between Hong Kong Science Park (near Chinese University of Hong Kong) and Tai Po Waterfront Park most. Scene is nice, and track is wide there!

Equipment: No need to bring your own bike. You can rent one at Tai Wai, Tai Po Market (shops just outside KCR station), as well as Tai Mei Tuk (country side area in Tai Po District). Bicycle rent range $30-$40/hour, or $50-$60/day.

Directions: Plenty of signs available along the track, almost no chance to get lost.

From Tai Wai or Tai Po Market: take KCR train to corresponding stations
From Tai Mei Tuk: arrive at Tai Po Market KCR Station, change bus 75K to Tai Mei Tuk terminal.
