Stay on Bicycle for quick return

BICYCLE is a totally different horse these days and should be backed accordingly in tonight's fifth event at Happy Valley.

Import duties on bicycles to be slashed

CHINA says it is cutting back import duties on motorcycles and bicycles by almost half from April 1 as part of its drive to enter the World Trade Organisation (WTO).

The government said tariffs on motorcycles with engine sizes of up to 800 cc would be slashed to 70 per cent, from 120 per cent.

Larger motorcycles would see tariffs cut to 50 per cent.

Switch of stables always good guide

ANYONE doubting the importance of a stable change only had to look at the way Bicycle won at 28-1 on his first start for the highly promising local handler Ricky Yiu in yesterday's Class Six event at Sha Tin.

Bicycle fare

I REFER to the letter from bicycle owner Alan Sargent (South China Morning Post, April 5) and the impending barring of bicycles from cross-harbour ferries.

This seems to be most unreasonable and an easy solution is obvious: charge the bicycle rider the same fare for his bicycle, as for himself.

This should satisfy both parties.

Repairs undertaken at indoor games hall

I REFER to the letter headlined, ''Good indoor games hall, but defects need to be rectified'', by Paul Stephenson (South China Morning Post, January 8).

The loose wall tiles in the male changing room were a latent defect inherited when the games hall was built. The building contractor was therefore responsible for its rectification.

Lucky escape

AN 11-year-old girl escaped serious injury when she was hit by the handlebars of a children's bicycle thrown from a building in Hang On Estate, Ma On Shan, last night. The metal bar hit the ground before hitting Chan Wing-yee in the stomach.
