Hong Kong Tourism Board hosts cycling event for local and international participants of all ages and levels
Hong Kong Cyclothon 2017 invites Thai cycling enthusiasts from Hong Kong and around the world to join the intense race and celebration in Hong Kong this October!
Hosted by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) on Sunday 8 October, the Hong Kong Cyclothon will gather some 5,000 local and international cyclists in a race of speed and endurance. The 50km and 30km rides, in particular, offer a precious opportunity for riders to pedal through the diverse cityscape of Asia’s World City. Streaking on bike across three bridges, including Tsing Ma Bridge, is an exclusive and breathtaking experience on the 50km ride, which is a “must-do” for cycling amateurs and professionals alike.
Top cyclists from around the world will take part in the first-ever UCI Class 1.1 road race organised in Hong Kong and experience the city’s enchanting appeal and applause from enthusiastic spectators and visitors. Join the passionate crowd in front of Victoria Harbour and cheer for the professional riders in the heart of the Event Capital of Asia!
