The 5th Harbourfront Bike Ride was joined by hundreds of cyclists, of all kinds of cycling experience and on all kinds of bikes (and a few other human-powered wheeled conveyances!)  On a fine afternoon, as well as having a good time together, the message was made loud and clear that cycling has a place on Hong Kong island.

Taiwan Cycling Festival

August 14th, 2011 | Posted by wheeliefine in events - (4 Comments)

As part of its ongoing push to make itself a regional mecca for cycling, Taiwan is holding a first annual ‘Taiwan Cycling Festival’, 5-13 November 2011.

For an event that was promoted with full page ads in The Economist, there is surprisingly little information online.  No single main website that I can find.

There was an official announcement, with the national tourism authority responsible.  But this third-party site seems to be the best available info. (There was a sort of warm-up event last year.)

Does anyone know more?

The 2011 Hong Kong Ride of Silence is nearly here again. It is held every year on the third Wednesday of May, to remember the cyclists being killed and injured every year on our roads

Date: Wednesday 18th May

Time: 7:30pm

Location: Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower

Notes: The star ferry will only allow 10 bikes per ferry journey from Wanchai, so be sure to get there a little early to make sure that you can get on a ferry in time, and chat with fellow cyclists.

See you there..!
