My Bike Hour Ride

I’ve been going on about it in the Cycling in Singapore and worked myself up to run home and jump on my bike. That was actually a little more complicated that it appears, but I did it!

I saw one likely Bike Hour cyclist who smiled and bobbed his head as we passed each other on opposite directions at the Ulu Pandan Canal.

Bike Hour

I used it to get myself on my bicycle for my first mid-week ride. I realise why I have not been doing it sooner though, the air is not wiped (relatively) clean as it is on a Sunday morning and there is plenty of construction along the route. The best part was riding next to a cool forest patch along Clementi Road!

For my mid-week ride to survive, I must plan a route adjacent to forest, well after peak hour for this to work – a Mandai loop beckons.
