The Sun Hung Kai Properties Hong Kong Cyclothon is back this year with a spectacular new route for local participants and an exciting virtual reality ride experience for people all around the world. Commencing on 16 January 2022, the Cyclothon will include the Hong Kong section of the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macao Bridge (HZMB).
HKTB Executive Director Mr Dane Cheng mentioned that the event will feature two “first” elements – the first sports event held on the world’s longest bridge-tunnel sea crossing & the first time a virtual experience has been incorporated into the event, offering cyclists worldwide who are unable to take part physically a thrilling and immersive experience of racing over the landmark bridge.
“These special features are a pilot run for future intercity events in the Greater Bay Area, and consolidate Hong Kong’s status as the international tourism event capital in the GBA. I sincerely hope participants from other cities in the Area will come and ride with us in the years to come,” he added.
Mr Adam Kwok, Executive Director of Sun Hung Kai Properties (SHKP), said, “The event will also continue to uphold SHKP’s spirit of Sports-for-Charity. In addition to allocating a part of the public registration fee for charity, our Group will make additional matching donations in the ratio of 1:5, meaning for every HK$100 an individual rider contributes, SHKP will pitch in HK$500, thus benefitting more people in need. We hope the public will keep the passion of the Tokyo Olympics and the National Games alive, by continuing to support the athletes and sports development in Hong Kong, and spend more time doing sports themselves.”
