Cycle to visit green architecture
If you wish to escape from Hong Kong’s mundane and repetitive life on a weekend to revitalise yourself,
enjoy sunshine, sea breeze and tranquility, cycling is surely a convenient and environmentally-friendly option.
From Tai Wai to Tai Po, cycling tracks are popular and well-established. Starting from Tai Wai, most people cycle along Shing Mun River towards Tolo Harbour. If you find this route monotonous, you may make a turn to Fo Tan Road, cross the river to the other side of Shing Mun River, make another turn at the Floating Restaurant to go to Siu Lek Yuen. Before the reclamation project was carried out in Shatin, there was a stream running from Temple Hill to Sha Tin Hoi. It became an artificial waterway after the urbanisation project.

Along the cycling track,
you’ll find the following green architecture:

Along the waterway, you may cycle slowly on a boulevard of shade trees. It just takes little time to reach the headwaters, where Hang Seng Management College is next to it. The College makes good use of sunlight as a source of indoor illumination. There are canteens, meadows and bike parking lots near the entrance, making it an excellent picnic spot. Meanwhile, you may take this opportunity to visit some green architecture; hence, this is an ideal resting spot midway.

After taking a break, you may resume your bike tour towards Tolo Harbour. When you pass through Ma Liu Shui, you’ll reach Science Park (also known as Hong Kong Science and Technology Park, HKSTP), which is an excellent location for family days as it is near Pak Shek Kok Promenade with much open space, and a great variety of restaurants and facilities. Science Park is also one of the largest sustainable development projects in Hong Kong. To reduce carbon emission, there are car restriction policies, with chargers for electric cars. There are weekend flea markets and organic markets, and other regular events for the public to take part in. Secure your bicycle at the bike parking lots, have a walk in the markets and end your bike tour with the magnificent view of different architectural features in Science Park.
