Update from Hennie in Hong Kong
When I arrived in Hong Kong on Monday, all I wanted was to go home. But I had only one day in Hong Kong. I have never been one that enjoyed figuring things out in a big city and definitely not a subway system. It is not that complicated but it is just not my thing. I forced myself so that I could enjoy the wonderful bike path.
I took the beautiful subway, very wide walk ways, clean and new, to Tai Pai. It took a while to get a bike that was my fit. I'm taller then most Chinese men!
It was a very, very nice ride.
It looked just like Holland. A two-way bike lane along the river and open water with traffic lights just for bikes, bridges over the river only for pedestrians and bikers.
I biked all the way to the end at Tai Mei Tuk which was 23 km one way the bike shop told me. It was 22 Celsius, son was shining, no helmet (just like the Dutch), and was very refreshing!
