That's quite a good distance to cover. Keeps you pretty fit and gives you some pretty nice views all the way too...from urban town, major office area to green parks and sea side and then back home again.Ya dude. Cycling at night indeed is more relaxing.
Not to mention cooling, cars and crowd will be much lesser.
Used to cycle from my place at Harbourfront to East Coast Park/Pasir Ris every saturday night.
Yup, always cycled past Shenton Way. Sometimes still can see pretty OLs just knocked off. Then on the way back, will choose the Kallang route. Went past Geylang towards Bugis, followed by heading to Orchard Road, by the time was around 12am+ already, so Orchard is deserted.That's quite a good distance to cover. Keeps you pretty fit and gives you some pretty nice views all the way too...from urban town, major office area to green parks and sea side and then back home again.
Everyone should check out to see if there is PCN route, it would provide a pretty safe pathway for you to cycle away from the motor roads. But if you can, it is also good to ride short distances and progressive work your way up to long distance cycling on roads with other vehicle. Confidence in tackling those roads will make you a more competence rider. Accidents usually happen when newbie bikers ( or those who take riding a bike for granted) panics and don't know what to do...that when really bad things happen.
Maybe you could... hard to say, it is not often you get bicycles featured at exhibitions as far as I am aware. Even if they do sell it, I doubt you will get to pay and take it home on the same day. If they are selling the bicycles you most likely have to pick it up another time. It take a while to unpack a bicycle kit and put it together component by component and set it up. It is also troublesome to do that at a exhibition booth and bicycle comes in various sizes..so how many piece do you think they will have time to do it at the booth? You might have to go pick it up at their office or workshop/shop. It takes hours just to fit up one bike and tune it.Guys
Do you think buying bicycle during Bike Asia will be cheaper? I base my experience from Sitex or other electronic fair that buying camera from these fairs usually will not be cheaper except you'll get more free gifts. Does it appplies for Bike Asia fair?
Sorry, I've never been to Bike Asia n I don't know what to expect. I'll be getting my bikes from Cheap John tomorrow so a little confuse after I found out that there is a bike fair coming soon.
Many thanks again for your advise
Think NTU is having a cycling event tomorrow that starts fron sun plaza at 6am to macdonald at east, you guys may bump into them.
Why do some cyclists want to ride both road and mountain bikes?hmmmm.... then i'll have to do more research... I don't really want a mountain bike.. more like hybrid or maybe a road if my budget permits. I hardly go on dirt trails so don't really see the need for a mountain bike.
Yeah. I do feel pretty worried if the road tyres cannot stand the kerbs or other funny stuff when riding on pavement. The MTB tyres feels for tough to me.I ride road on a MTB.
To me MTB is more versatile.
Wanted to change to semisllicks when I first bought my bikes but the trade in price of my knobs were $10 bucks.. so I though I cycle on knobs first..Nothing wrong with that. It may surprise you to know that 95% of MTB bought never see offroad. Change to some semi-slick and you will really be flying faster and use up less energy and see more of Singapore.
Not many choices out there for you if you want to stick to tires that cost less then your bike. (My tires cost me a total of $120..and that is average and getting good discont from the shop) And as you get to know more about biking stuff you find...if you are one of those who buy bikes that cost like less then a hundred. Paying that kind of price will seem strange to you.Yeah. I do feel pretty worried if the road tyres cannot stand the kerbs or other funny stuff when riding on pavement. The MTB tyres feels for tough to me.
BTW, does anyone knows how much is it to get a 26in tyre for a cheap (<$100) MTB? How much cheaper is it to change myself than bringing to the shop and change them?
Also, how much more expensive are the wider tyres? My standard tyres are wider than the other cheap bikes and will maintain them wide as long as it's not too expensive.
You are great! How many bicycles do you have?Just gave my bicycles a thorough clean up after rotting for years.
Washing, waxing, de-rust and lubricate all parts.
Most likely will go explore the Southern Ridges soon.
Own 2 bicycles, took me about 3 days to get both up and running.You are great! How many bicycles do you have?
Must have taken you a couple of days to get them up
Do share with us your experiences with your exploration at Southern Ridges.
Keep yourself up on the saddle and ride to
discover and explore more about yourself and the world.
Good way to keep fit. :thumbsup:Just sharing...huffing and puffing at the upslope just after the quarry towards Chek Jawa
Somewhere between Kampong Melayu & Nordin
Occasionally will ride out to ECP every Sat. Round Island once in a while.
Used to cycle to work every Friday from Pasir Ris to Shenton Way at Temasek Tower but since moving to Revenue House...I haven't tried it out yet.
BTW, there's Singapore MTB Carnival coming this Saturday 28 Feb at Tampines MTB Park.
It'll feature several category including 100KM Night MTB Marathon.
Any CS'er going for photo shoot or participating in any event?
