Ride For a Pollution-Free Hong Kong

Add your voice (and wheels) to the call for a cycle path along the Hong Kong island harbourfront and open our harbourfront to leisure, transport and tourism for a healthy lifestyle. Governments around the world are investing in cycling as a sustainable mode of transport, improving air quality and creating liveable cities. The Hong Kong government has been expanding and improving the bicycle trail network in the New Territories to meet the demands of residents. Urban areas are in need of cycling infrastructure. “A Green Harbourfront Cycle Path for Hong Kong Island” has been campaigning since Since 2007 and in early 2009, the Development Bureau announced the first section of the trail on the new Central reclaimation. The 4th Harbourfront Bike Ride for Pollution Free Hong Kong aims to promote other bike trails on Hong Kong Island and continue on our journey towards a green future for Hong Kong.

When I see an adult on a bicycle, I do not despair for the future of the human race.”
