Beware of traffic when crossing roads

At the weekends, the route between Sheung Shui and Yuen Long can get very busy,especially when people stop to take photos.

The route also crosses a number of roads, where bike riders are required to dismount.

This is especially the case along the Kwu Tung section of the route, which crosses several roads over a distance of just 1 km.

To reduce the risk of an accident, beginners and family groups are recommended to dismount along the narrow sections of the route near Kwu Tung.
