I am looking for candidates to replace my 6am, 32km Marina South ride that had us meeting at the Kent Ridge marker stone at 5.45am and hitting campus by 7.30am. So I plotted the Inner Central Route which turned out to be 42.4km, after avoiding Bukit Timah and entering the Ulu Pandam Park Connector for the last bit.
It’s 10km (i.e. half hour) longer than the Marina South ride. Estimated intersection with traffic/roads are:
- 6.30am – Upper Thomson Road near AMK Ave 1
- 7.00am – Mandai Road (after Seletar E’way)
- 7.30am – Bukit Batok Road
- 7.45am – Boon Lay Way
- 7.50am – enter park connector
Its obvious that for this route to be safe, I’d have to leave at 5am instead. Sheeesh. I’ll look some more.
Postscript – Not that the old route was wonderfully safe, but its good to consider when planning at least!
looks like this is out for me.
Well unless you’re riding from campus. Might organise one for TKX to try, very early morning.
