And Around We Go

About as close to circumnavigating Hong Kong Island as you can get. A nice flat start around the NW side to let the legs warm up with great views out to Lamma and the South China Sea. Fly down the descent into Aberdeen but watch the traffic if you're not riding this early morning as it can become congested. There should be some nice boats anchored off Deep Water Bay as you pass Hong Kong Golf Club with the road rising and falling consistently as you pass through Repulse Bay, Stanley, and on towards the first climb of the ride from Tai Tam Reservoir up to Shek O Rd. One of the few flat sections awaits, so enjoy the view to your right back out over Tai Tam Tuk and you'll get an idea of how far you've climbed. There's a nice descent into Shek O Beach where you can enjoy a coffee at Lulu's or Ming's Cafe. The climb back out from Shek O will wake the legs back up before you drop down the other side of the ridge towards Chai Wan and start heading back to Central. The route gets fairly hectic from here with this being a busy traffic corridor, so if that's not your thing just retrace the coastal road the way you came. You will miss the pulse of Hong Kong as you go through North Point, Causeway Bay and Wan Chai though!
