I was introducing a friend this morning to a relatively safe cycling route to NUS campus from Sin Ming. It’s a longer route but goes through several peaceful havens. Except that lots of things have changed and the ride was not half as pleasant as I remembered it.
But one refuge remained true to memory, an that was Kheam Hock Road – yup, the Bukit Brown cemetery. I used to love riding up the slope on cold nights and enjoying the cold air and pleasant night sounds.
I wish this refuge was safe from developers though.
Man that’s so beautiful! I was just telling my wife today that we should try to join you one day on these rides… Maybe I will start first by dusting out the old bicycle (or getting a new one) and investing in some decent gear too.
Was first introduced to the cemetery a few years ago. Love to ride there on the way to early morning Mandai rides. Only complaint is the scary wild dogs. 😀
Hey Jungle Runner, I remember the dogs well. It was exciting and fun to encounter them!
