This is the big one. Named for the local cycling club - SIRS - The Sirloin is a double serve of the best ride on Hong Kong Island. The ride starts, as most do, from the top of Wong Nai Chung Gap Rd near the Hong Kong Cricket Club. Save your legs on the ride down the coast to Shek O; you'll need them on the way back. If you don't fancy the full meaty serve, stop at Shek O for a bite to eat before riding back the way you came. The route takes you along the coast through Repulse Bay, Stanley and Tai Tam before descending to Shek O. On the return journey, the climb up Repulse Bay Rd to the Peak is (thus far) the only successful Everesting attempt for Hong Kong. Once you make Stubbs Rd and then onto Peak Rd, the views out over the city and onto Kowloon and the New Territories are worth stopping for. Yes, that's China in the distance. Pass the tourist trap that is Peak Galleria and a final reward awaits at the top of Mt Austin with a great view out over Lamma Island. Pity about the smoke stacks!
