Lantau Island
Hong Kong's best kept secret for road and mountain biking

11 December 2009

Welcome to the first post to our blog site

The South Lantau Cycle Team is a group of cyclists who cycle for fitness and fun. Although there are one or two who dabble in the darker arts of triathlon and Action / Adventure racing we generally prefer to cycle. Our youngest team member is nine and our more senior members are sixty plus.

Based primarily on the South side of Lantau Island we are limited to two or three roads and routes. Nevertheless those routes provide us with some of the steepest hill climbs and quietest roads in Hong Kong and are well worn training routes by many of Hong Kong's top cyclists. Traffic is light, the roads are reasonably even (unless out near the airport where buses and large potholes abound)but more often than not our biggest and most dangerous obstacles are the wandering buffalo.
