About this event

Cycling from Tai Wai to Tai Mei Tuk is a great way to enjoy Hong Kong, you will get to see the natural beauty along the coastline. The total cycling length is around 27km and will take a maximum of 3 hours to complete.

After gathering at 10am in Tai Wai MTR Station, we will rent a bike at the bike shop near Tai Wai MTR Station, ride along the scenic coastline of Tolo Harbour, then head towards Tai Mei Tuk. We will then cross the main dam of Plover Cove Reservoir where the Floating Photovoltaic System (FPV) is located.

After the visit, we will cycle back to Tai Mei Tuk and return the bike there. The trip will finish at 2pm.

Optional activities after cycling:

  1. Lunch with the Networking Sub-committee and others in a local restaurant
  2. Cycling back to Tai Wai for returning the bike (return the bike at 5pm latest)

Brief background on the visit to WSD’s Floating Photovoltaic System:
There is a trend of developing FPV system on reservoirs and ponds in overseas countries. Apart from the obvious benefit of harvesting renewable energy from the sun, there are additional advantages of FPV on the reservoir surface, including reduction of water evaporation, suppressing algae growth, saving precious land resources and yielding higher solar panel power generation efficiency. A short briefing will be provided by Alex So who works for the consultant designing the Floating Photovoltaic (FPV) systems.
