    Default Location suggestion for Dirt Bike Shoot?

    Hi, I am looking for a place for a dirt bike shoot. Dont want to do it at Tuas Motorcross.

    Ideally for the location, i dont want to have HDB flats in the backgrd but if there are some place rugged. Also, if there are lose soil on the ground where the bike can kick up some fine sand particles would be great...

    Does anyone has other suggestions/ pictures/ maps of other accessible areas?

    Thanks for the info in advance...

    Am not a biker though I have seen dirt bikes practising on the the open ground directly above the subterranean Malaysia-Singapore main water pipes, which happens to be just next to the Zhenghua cycling trail and Belukar mountain biking track leading into Bukit Timah nature reserve.









    I hope this helps.

    Found some photos of the location online. The length of the Malaysia-Singapore water pipes from Chestnut avenue till Rifle Range road is approximately 2.26km long and divided into three separate sections, there is also a water spring beneath one of the exposed pipes though I'm no longer sure if it is still bubbling.

    yah that is the place. I did my navigation there during my army days . Somewhere along the path there are a few humps for bikers to do their stuns. But i seriously think its for bicycle only...

    Hi, i was told that Tuas and normal roads are the only legal ways to ride bikes. Any other areas, places are deemed illegal... haha...

    Anyway, thinking differently how to do that bike shoot...

    a really old photo from when i used to ride, to illustrate my point on type of terrain needed (this was taken in the early 90s)
    so please forgive my bad framing and general lack of quality
