Punggol Waterway Night Ride

On Hari Raya Haji, LCSG rode along the new Punggol Waterway.

We had our very own Three Bikerteers join us straight from the Woodlands Checkpoint shortly after returning from their ride to Mersing. Respect.

It's really quite a small world and cycling makes it even smaller. We met Mel during the ride. Our dogs (yeah you read that right) are long time friends. Reina and Billie Jean met online about 4 years ago. Reina says hi!

It was really nice having Mel join us for the ride. We look forward to riding together more often in the near future!

Bernard led us through the new Punggol Waterway. NParks and the relevant authorities have done a great job with the new Waterway. Punggol residents can attest to that. Property prices have probably gone up since the launch of the waterway. It is a beautiful place for cycling.

Group shot on the Waterway bridge. About 50 riders turned up for the ride. Massive for a monday night ride!

It was a great ride, more so when you get some love from Taiwan...

Encik George brought home a Brompton basket for us. Since the day we got our Bromptons, Gwyn has been on the look out for a front basket. We contemplated DIY, but ensuring that the construction was firm and stable was always going to be a challenge.

The basket fits perfectly!

Attached to the Brompton bracket and further secured by velcro, stability was achieved. Gwyn spent little time pimping up her new basket with flowers from our Wedding.

And we had our VID (Very Important Dog) grace the basket. Looking good, though it's unlikely we'll transport them in our basket. We'll probably get a dog trailer. The basket is more for our Mee Poks and Char Kway Teows...

  3. Riding at night is fun. This has been also my folding bike experience. According to your report and pictures it must be even more fun to do it in a group. Many greetings from a Bromptin folder enthusiast in Germany, Guenther

  4. Hi Gunther, thanks for dropping by. It is nice hearing from you. Cycling in a group is fun! If by any chance do you stop by Singapore, do consider joining one of the group rides. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

  5. Thanks Kevin. I like your blog and its spirit, so I have just posted a link to it.
    Hopefully, one night we will have also a group ride here in Bonn where you would be invited to join, too.
    Have fun! G√ľnther
