We Did It!

We did it! The round-island cycling trip I've been wanting to do, and it was great!

We did 92 km in 7 hours (5 hours on the bike, plus 2 hours for rests), and we went through these estates:

Woodlands - Sembawang - Yishun - Seletar Air Base - Seng Kang - Hougang - Tampines - Simei - Bedok - Geylang - Bugis - Chinatown - Outram Park - Tiong Bahru - Telok Blangah - past Sentosa and all the way down West Coast Highway - Clementi - Jurong East - Boon Lay - Bukit Batok - Choa Chu Kang - Kranji - Woodlands

It was a hot day, but we managed with taking lots of water and salty snacks. We had divided the trip into 4 legs (Woodlands - Tampines, Tampines - Chinatown, Chinatown - Jurong, and Jurong - Woodlands). We figured roughly 2 hours per leg, but managed all of them more quickly than that. This was partly due to some roads that have been newly opened in some areas I have not cycled in some time, and partly just because we kept a better pace than I expected.

It was a great day, and I am glad we did it.

Watch for pictures here soon!
