Average cycling time: Less than 2 hours | Distance: About 8 km | Difficulty: Easy

This is a shorter version of the Sha Tin to Tai Mei Tuk route. Instead of heading for Tai Po from Twin Bridge in Sha Tin, continue along the eastern shore of Tolo Harbour into Ma On Shan New Town. Conclude your ride with a view of the sunset at Wu Kai Sha Beach and Public Pier — a relatively short route, but scenic all the same.
