I love the green colour of the bike.

I'd also love to hear more about your rides from a different side of the world, and don't worry if your English isn't perfect.

I hope my less than perfect English wouldn't let you disappointed.

I would like to buy this bike as well in HK. Any shop can find it ? Is it easy to carry to China ? Via train or drive ?

Welcome,

That's a lovely tandem in my favourite colour.

I was lucky enough to visit Hong Kong in the 90's whilst working on Chek Lap Kok airport and other buildings. Stayed in Kowloon (Mariners Hotel), and would sometimes venture out to the New Terrorities.

Once out of the confines of Hong Kong the countryside was wonderful.

Really enjoyed it out there, I do remember lots of hills though !!
