Enjoy fun of cycling at West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade
People wanting to have fun cycling with family members but don't want to travel a long way need look no further than the West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade.
Equipped with a 1.5-kilometre cycling track, bicycle rental facilities and a mini cycling ground in the centre of the promenade, the West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade is an ideal cycling ground in the urban areas for parents and children where cyclists can also admire the harbour view.
People can take the opportunity tomorrow afternoon (May 27) to attend a fun-filled family carnival at the promenade, organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, and share the fun of cycling.
There will be various entertaining programmes, including cycling performances, trampoline games, games stalls, variety show and clown performances.
