Pandan Resevoir Ride

Today, lovecyclingsg turns 1 and it coincided with a short 1 hr ride around Pandan Reservoir, coupled with a special workshop organised by MyBikeShop, which was in the vicinity.

If there is one thing that we've learnt through riding, it's to always expect the unexpected.

The trail around Pandan Reservoir was flat but "pebbleful". We rode along slowly and steadily (with both fingers and toes crossed). A puncture was the last thing on our minds.

I do have to say that we're delighted with how our Bromptons handled the terrain and pebbly conditions. Thumbs up!

The scenary around the reservoir was quite stunning, though the extremely hot weather conditions (near noon sun) made it a bit harder to enjoy the view.

Riders rode on...everyone determined to complete the loop.

Hide from the sun! Most riders seeked refuge in the shade...

For a while, it did seem as if the workshop had started early and off site.

It turns out that someone suffered a puncture but fret not, George Lim to the rescue, illustrating how important/fortunate it is to have experience within the group.

With the intense heat building up, we broke away from the group for a quick chill down at Ayer Rajah hawker centre.

Came across this very interesting drink. Have you ever tried ordering a "Michael Jackson"?

That's right, Micheal Jackson = Soya Bean + Chin Chow...We learnt something new today.

The workshop at MyBikeShop got underway...

Here is Gwyn's first encounter with the pink moulton poison...

Riding around Pandan Reservoir offers a mini offroad experience with quite a view of the scenic reservoir surrounding. Just make sure that you have the right tyres and preferably, do it at the right time of the day to fully embrace your surrounding.
