The network of cycling tracks was built to cover almost the whole Sha Tin area. Let the tracks lead your way and you will find out those wonders of the natural beauty from Sha Tin, Tai Wai, Ma On Shan, Tai Po and Lai Chung, etc.

 

Here are some suggested routes for every bike lover as follows:-

 

Take the Wheel around Sha Tin

We ride inside Sha Tin area and take a peek at every corner around. Let’s get started at Sha Tin Park, riding via Hong Kong Heritage Museum, Tai Wai, Che Kung Temple, Tsang Tai Uk, Yat Ming Chuen, Sha Kok Estate, Yuen Chau Kok, City One, (crossing the ‘Twin bridges’) Hong Kong Jockey Club Sha Tin Racecourse, Wo Che Estate, Lek Yuen Estate, back to Sha Tin Park as our endpoint. If you just want a casual ride, it is a good idea for you to go Shing Mun River Channel.

 

Next, to Tai Po

You probably want to challenge yourself for a mid-distance route. Why don’t you try this one – from Sha Tin to Tai Po? We start at Sha Tin Park and ride beside Shing Mun River Channel (via Lek Yuen Estate, Wo Che Estate, Sha Tin Rowing Centre, Hong Kong Sports Institute, Hong Kong Jockey Club Sha Tin Racecourse, then choose Tolo Harbour Cycling Track toward Tai Po Waterfront Park. Take a break there and have some snacks, then return to Sha Tin on the same route.

 

A friendly tip: You may find some narrow turns between the path along – from Hong Kong Sports Institute to Hong Kong Jockey Club Sha Tin Racecourse. Be very cautious there to avoid the accident!

 

*We suggest you could ride from Tai Po Waterfront Park to scenic Tai Mei Tuk if you are still fit enough. However, please take a rest before you ride again if you get too tired. (Stay Safe: this is very important to all of us!)

 

Give Yourself a Challenge: Nai Chung

Another great cycling route would make all bike lovers feel blissful – from Sha Tin to Nai Chung. We start from the same point, Sha Tin Park, and ride directly toward another side of Shing Mun River Channel. Take the wheel and ride along (via Tsang Tai Uk, Jat Ming Chueng, Sha Kok Estate, Yuen Chau Kok, City One), Tai Shui Hang, Ma On Shan Waterfront Park, U Kai Sha and then Nai Chung. Enjoy your afternoon tea there and finish your day before returning to Sha Tin Park.
