I am editing the Pedal Ubin webpage for what must be the final time. This current version of a 12-year exploratory cycling programme on Pualu Ubin has come to an end.
The current guides are veterans of the 2nd and 3rd cohorts who were trained and assumed duties under the Pedal Ubin banner. Some have served since 2003 – six years!
We had a simple farewell dinner earlier and chatted about regular things. One more in our company will head overseas but the rest hope to meet to cycle leisurely around the island wihtout the responsibility of participants but with the company of friends.
So right now I set about amending the webpage to indicate closure of the programme.
Next week though, I return to the island with teaching assistants for a recce trip in preparation for an upcoming field trip with the new second year undergraduate ecology course. The Pedal Ubin experience will play a significant role in the design, management and logistics of this field trip.
So explorations of Pulau Ubin continue…
Update – posted announcement on Habitatews – Pedal Ubin – ride’s over after 12 years!
