Head for the Hills
Because Underneath, We’re All Mountain Men

Anyone who’s cycled anywhere even remotely populated in Hong Kong knows how many “wobblers” there are; fellow cyclists enduring pure terror at the hands of a rental bike, for whom the blissful minutes of riding seem only to stave off the inevitable calamity of crashing, often at the expense of anyone within arm’s reach. But for those as comfortable on two wheels as they are on two legs (and there’s plenty of us), the ultimate rush comes not from playing soya chicken with these footpath foes, but by hitting Hong Kong’s mountain trails, taking man and machine to their limits in acts of gravity-defying tenacity.

Cross Country Hong Kong offers a range of daytime guided mountain bike treks, for all experience levels, taking would-be riders to routes best suited to their skills. With their certified instructors, explore some of Hong Kong’s best trails and stunning landscapes including thigh-burning peaks and adrenalin-pumping descents. Even better, they bring the bikes. They offer beginner courses on Lantau, while experienced diehards (excuse the pun) can take one-on-one classes with Cross Country’s best. And for “wobblers”, they also run basic bicycle safety courses.

Because what goes up, must come down.
