If you look beyond the urban sky scrappers of Hong Kong, you could easily see that the outer landscape is hilly and mountainous. Such kind of landscape is just the perfect place for mountain biking. Although, this sport isn’t for amateur cyclers. There are a lot of risks involved. A minute lapse of concentration or even a small mistake in handling can lead to very serious injuries. One thing that should not be ignored is precautionary measures like wearing the helmet, knee guards and elbow guards, nevertheless ensuring that the brakes are not too tight either. It is always risky to apply tight brakes as it can flip you over on hilly tracks. Lamma Island, Tai Mo Shan and Dragon’s Back are a few hilly trails that would be apt for cycling.

Canyoning
