Kranji Ride photos

The rain came but didnt dampen the spirits of the 20+ riders.
We pressed on to visit Kranji War memorial, Kranji dam, Bollywood veggies, Hay diaires and Lim chu kang Jetty. Wonderful ride with friendships being made. This is what riding is about. Ride on!

Sunday ride 17th Oct – Kranji, here we come!

Ok folks, this coming sunday we will explore the Ulu side of Kranji! Meet at Kranji MRT at 0730. Place of interest are Kranji war memorial, Railway tracks, Kranji Dam where u can see JB, nice BBC radio tower, Bollywood veggies, maybe Hay dairies if our legs can cope… oh of course there will be lots of greenery and maybe mossies too!  I would strongly suggest u bring more water as I have no clue where I can find water points along the way:)No lah.. there will be food/drinks stop… at Bollywood. 🙂 Again, no discrimination to wheel size, gear and brands.. all are welcome. All I ask is that u come with an open mind, ride as a group and plenty of smiles…. It should all end by 11ish… if i don’t get lost 🙂

Interested to join us for a ride?  Come on, I know u want to … it is easy and it is fun!

bottle tree to Zoo ride

Another cool ride with new friends.  Jimm, Brandon riding their fixies and Chris in his super duper Timetrialish bike  took on the hills and led the way.   From bottle tree we rode towards zoo, stopping at the water line to look at the monkeys. Also did a detour to visit the nice upper seletar.  Some of the folks havent seen it and from their looks, they like it.  To top it all, we had Yishun very own, Ampang niang toufoo. The best in SG and many many thanks for Mr Teo treat!  So here are the pictures of the ride!

Latest update route for 10th Oct Sunday

Let’s keep it simple. Meet at Bottle tree at 0730. It is near Khatib MRT for those who is not around this area. We will ride along Mandai road, using PCN and then head towards the Zoo. There are some nice views of the reservoir and some monkeys hanging around. This is about 10 Km each way max, if we are all feeling ok, we may go a longer route to check out Kranji reservoir… it is nearby Zoo. We will play by ear.

Thomson ride to see monkey alley

Hello all, lets do a ride to see the SG monkey community and the nice reservoirs. We will start 0730 at Casuarina Road car park , where the prata shop is. Ride along old thomson road, nice and shady. Say hello to the monkey families..guys, gals.. there will be plenty and pls dont feed them… I don’t want to cause riot.. we will just roll along slowly.

Short ride but hilly one, rest at the lower pierce reservoir. Then we will head toward Mandai road, nice photo opportunity at upper pierce reservoir and end at the Singapore Zoo. Then back to where we started. I think we should be back by 11 if we stick to the timing.  Interested ?
