Some of you may already know but I have been working on a replacement for the ailing groupspaces platform which this site currently resides on. After searching and testing various options, I came to the conclusion that it was either not cost effective or the UI would be more complicated for the end user. Everybody likes ease of use these days and especially through their mobile devices so therefor I have chosen to go on to the Meetup platform and have started a group on meetup at this address http://www.meetup.com/hong_kong_hikers/ This is NOT to be confused with the larger Hong Kong Hiking Meetup which is a totally separate entity. Just like facebook has many groups, so does meetup. All our hikes for now will be on both platforms until people get used to the new system. Our style and general ethos of our hikes will remain the same. Small groups of maximum 30, easy to hard hikes, with trying to find an establishment at the end of the hike to enjoy dining/drinking options and being social.
The transistion should be complete by the end of September but this site will remain but will have a new look and the RSVP system will be via the meetup system and not on here. All the great content can still be found here along with future hikes.
Also I am looking for any volunteers who are willing to host hikes at night or weekends. If you are interested, then please speak to someone in our leadership team or email me at steve [at] hongkonghikers.com
Hope you all have a good summer and see you on the trails.
