GITPA cycling adventure

Autumn flies by in a flash. It’s always a good idea to take advantage of the crisp weather and ride into the countryside to meet the authentic scenery.

Have you ever thought that “Cycle touring sounds like fun but it isn’t really for me”? “I am not in shape”, “I don’t want to do it alone”, or “I simply don’t know how to get started” are exactly the reasons to go for our cycle tour, not your excuses.

GITPA is now organizing a guided cycle tour. This guided outing is not just a workout on two wheels. First you’ll cycle to Nam Sang Wai, a place where you will be surrounded by a landscape of farms and glistening fish ponds, a place that makes you feel a world away from urban Hong Kong. After that we will visit the mysterious tree house (Kam Tin Tree House), and wind our way along Kam Tin River for a reviving Farm Flavor lunch, which emphasizes on fresh, seasonal food that is locally grown.

The Kam Tin Tree House is an ancient Banyan tree. According to folklore, the stone structure beneath the tree used to be a Tin Hau Temple or a Q’ing dynasty village study hall. It is considered one of Hong Kong’s most important living trees.

Cycle touring is very different from car travel. It is not just cycling for exercise; a cycle touring should be a journey. Please let the autumn sun warm your cheeks, and stay curious as we believe each road should bring breathtaking vistas.

If you’re ready for a cycling adventure, grab your helmet and stay tuned to our coming announcement!
