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!

After a lovely warm and colorful autumn, the trees are now skeletal and an unusually early, deep cold has taken hold. Read More
The Anti-Cruise CruiseA bike and barge holiday is the polar opposite of a cruise ship vacation. While on a mega-sized ship, you see the world from the top down, high above the water and leagues from the shore. The luxury and size of the ship insulate you from your environment. It's rather like watching the world from a super-sized, super formatted, flat screen TV.On the beautiful Mosel River
Not so on a barge. A barge is so close to the water that you can almost reach down and touch it. Read More
