It has got to be a relaxing one and one that we don't expose ourselves under hot sun for too long. Either we do sunny's airforce base + dinner in the evening or see if we can work out the Tai Mo Shan route. Let's do another route research like last time in a cool evening.

Sure, we can do another route research just like last time (it was not cool, it was quite hot!)

cnt said we should be doing 1 meet per month, so I guess he is the one who can't get enough

Seriously he is a demanding guy, he likes the photos to be in perfection. He doesn't allow the cars to be inches away from it's best position for the photos....

Thank you cnt for your hard works

Sounds interesting for sunny's airforce base....we can go the Regal Airport Hotel for dinner or drinks afterwards...I love to take some sunset pictures

Yes, it will be a night meet for airforce base but I am confused what "E75" meet is?

E75=(E60+E90)/2

Another proposed route:

Cyberport --> Pokfulam Road --> Connaught Road Central (flyover) --> Cotton Tree Drive --> Magazine Gap Road --> Peak --> One of the beaches at Southern side

This route is good for Sunday morning drive but also OK for Saturday evening drive (though the traffic will likely be busy in Central/Admiralty area). If it's a Saturday evening drive we can even drive up to the "peak of the peak" via the small convoluted one-way road. There is a open carpark at the top of the hill (we're talking about way up from the Peak plaza).

Thanks for the suggestion, N

How about something like: IFC - The peak (Peak of the peak) - Cyberport (drinks)



It's better to try to avoid traffic and traffic lights so that it is more organised.

Quite fine indeed. The only possible traffic jam will be the way out from IFC and Star Ferry Pier. There are at least 5 traffic lights in between and you really need to drive in a competitive manner and combat with taxi drivers particularly if it's a Saturday evening. I frequently park my car at Hong Kong Station Carpark 2 so I'm very familiar with the vicinity.

And if we are going up to the peak of the peak, it must be a Saturday evening. That road is not open to drivers on Sundays and public holidays except residents of that road. There'll be a road block just in front of the road and if the police sees a team of BMW cars, we'll certainly have no luck

Yes, it will be Sat. evening. I am quite interested to visit the Peak of the peak. Don't worry, we can handle 5-6 traffic lights and taxis will eat our dust. Before we go, I may arrange some members from the Island to test out the route together so at least we can have 3-4 cars know the route and each car will lead 3-4 other cars....

The view at the peak of the peak should be stunning
