Hong Kong Tourism Board in association with The Cycling Association of Hong Kong is all set to introduce the 2015 Hong Kong Cyclothon on October 10-11. Thousands of experienced and casual riders will descend on the city for the inaugural Cyclothon. The weekend-long event expects to attract 5,500 participants riding across eight different riding categories, from beginners who simply want to absorb the scenery to professionals looking to warm-up before their next big competition to families looking for a fun day out with their little ones.
From Copenhagen to London, Chicago to Paris, urban cycling has been riding a wave of momentum lately. Even in densely packed Hong Kong, visitors and residents alike are hopping on two wheels to navigate the matrix of urban streets, explore the leafy new territories and tackle the challenging mountains trails peppered around the SAR. At the same time, sporting events in general seem to be gaining popularity across Asia. Hong Kong holds myriad large-scale athletic competitions throughout the year, including the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon, Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens, Hong Kong Masters, International Dragon Boat Races and the FIVB Volleyball World Grand Prix.
