The NTU Bike Rally is here again! This year it will be held on 1st June 2008 and my cycling kakis are already signing up.
This event by NTU Sports Club is easily the best round island cycling event in Singapore. It’s non-competitive, providing multiple rest points and a backdrop of safety measures to cope with event-cyclists who do not regularly cycle. This year they have decided to have two start points, one that will cover a shorter distance as the many weak cyclists will fade in the heat of the day.

In the process participants overcome mental obstacles about long distance cycling, they “discover” Singapore and get to meet some new friends!
If you are planning to go for your first long ride, check out my “Recipe for long rides”. The most important thing to do is to take one or two shorter rides (e.g. try the eastern park connector) before the event so your rear gets used to the saddle. Else its agonising!
