Organised by the Hong Kong Tourism Board in partnership with the Cycling Association of Hong Kong, the 2015 Hong Kong Cyclothon is expected to attract 5,500 participants riding across eight different riding categories.
The two-day sporting event features a mixture of professional and amateur rides in the heart of the city, covering iconic landmarks including the International Commerce Centre and Tsing Ma Bridge. Visitors can enjoy the city’s scenery on long, leisurely rides, cheer on competitive cyclists from around the world and kick back at a two-day carnival at the waterfront of the famous Victoria Harbour.
“Rugby is a game that you can watch, but cycling is a game that you can participate in, so that’s a big difference,” says world champion racing cyclist Wong Kam-Po. “Even a kid can join in the community during the family cycling events.”
Hong Kong Tourism Board is looking to engage participant from across the globe in this event, and give participants a unique experience of the destination through this. In order to participate in the event, visitors should plan to arrive in Hong Kong by October 8 in order to pass a skills test.
