8月29日財經透視報導最近香港的自行車趨勢,及因而帶起的新商機。亦有提及香港將會於2014年興建貫穿新界東西的自行車徑。眾多新舊自行車營運者對未來香港的生意充滿信心。

Perhaps due to a Yellow Rain Signal, no one showed up in the Critical Mass of August. I was not aware of it when I headed to the gathering point. So I guess it’s a private Critical Mass this time.

After the ride I dropped by Bike 7, which is one of the bike shops that I often visit. They carry a neat range of downhill bikes and road bikes. Owner and staff are friendly and helpful. I learnt a great deal from them here.

Bike 7’s address: G/F, 49 Sa Po Road, Kowloon City.

Copenhagen is the best case scenario for cycling around the city. They made it 40 years. Some advocates in America hope to do it in less than that. Why can’t Hong Kong do it as well?

The film is 10’45” but worths every second of it.
