Bicycling in Hong Kong
This March I will be traveling to Hong Kong to adjudicate piano at an annual music festival they have been holding since the 1940's. I did this 6 years ago, and have been invited back for 2011. I did not have a cycling life back then. Now I do, and hope to incorporate it however I can into my month long stay. I have discovered that cycling is alive and well there. A local advocacy group, the Hong Kong Cycling Alliance, has been working to educate the public. There is also the sport side supported by the Hong Kong Cycling Association. I am considering taking my folding bike along, and am trying to figure out if it will make sense to do so. Otherwise it seems I can rent a bike there for a reasonable rate. I am looking forward to the different ways Hong Kong is going to enhance my cycling life. Stay tuned for more regarding this trip later in the spring.
