Lots of fun and lots of smile, that’s what keep us going!
I lost count, but from the group photo above I can tell there was a least 60+ riders, all prepared to start at 7:00am on a fine Sunday morning. In total, there were 50 registered riders from LovecyclingSG and 14 from Han’s group and another 15 from PUB. Some riders who join as we rode accross the route from Alexendra Canel, via Singapore river to Marina Barrage.
This is the first time we ride with such a big group. Tai Woon proposed the route. The objective is to define a route safe for family rides and along as many water ways as possible. We have been on most of the places during our earlier rides but never for such a large group. We decided to split into 3 sub-groups , each group has a leader and sweeper, Tai Woon, Clarence and Zack are the leaders (with red flags) and Andrew, Daivd and Andy are the sweepers (yellow flags). We also have additional helps from Brandon, Vince and Steve. Roaming photographers are Matt, K.C. and I. Even the day before Vince and Steve join the final recee ride with Taiwoon and I. We identified the final crossing points where we need additional help from AETOS Auxillary Police Force who will be riding motorcycle as our outriders. The even turn out great fun. We took photos along the entire route, crossing at the busy Zion Road and Kim Seng Road was not an issue with the great help of AETOS outriders. Riding from Bay Front Avenue onward was all on main roads and shielded by the AETOS motorcyclist outriders. Thanks to all the helps from everyone, our little princess 8+ years old Celeste looks relax and happy, and so did the rest.
I selected a few pics to post here, more high-res photos can be found at my flickr site.

hello guys, gals
Ride update and route change..Please note. ..
World Water Day is an initiative that grew out of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED)and held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of water and advocating for the sustainable management of water resources. The World Water Day activities here in Singapore follow the theme “Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters for All”. This is in line with PUB’s ABC Water Programme where our waterways and reservoirs are transformed into beautiful community spaces. There will be a host of activities island-wide over the weekend of 19th and 20th March, thanks to community partners All these activities takes place thanks to the stewardship efforts of community adopters of ABC Waters sites..
