This week is gonna be the last week that I can at least slack a bit.. Next week onwards, it's gonna be nothing but school work. So yeah, I took the chance of my Tuesday free day ystd to test out the bike after changing the damaged front tyre during the weekend. Maxxis High Roller is the new one, replacing the 10yr old Panaracer. Check out the pics
The day started with dim sum bfast at Crystal Jade with mum
Set off my journey from home at 2pm.. It drizzled a bit in Tampines when I left hse, but by the time i hit ECP, the sun shining like crazy.. It was scorching as u can see..
Finished the whole stretch of ECP n went up the bridge
I haf no idea wad they gonna build here.. It used to be heavily forested..
The F1 paddocks... N thanks to this F1 event slightly more than a month away, I was stuck in my planned route due to barriers erected around the track after i descended from the bridge.. Ended up i need to walk/crawl/fly on terrain that's not meant for human..
I was then stuck within the loop of the F1 track.. U can see the overhead floodlights here on the metal racks.. Shortcuts were impossible and i need to travel almost the whole loop of the F1 track to get out of it..
Stuck with nowhere to go..
After much trouble. i reached Pasir Panjang via Shenton Way/Keppel Road
Taking a break outside Vivocity, overlooking the bridge to Sentosa
The 2nd IR of SG on Sentosa.. I can see it taking shape pretty quickly..
N went to Seah Im hawker centre opposite..
My much needed hydration boost.. The sun was amazing...
then headed down to Orchard Rd via Tiong Bahru.. this is the new Ion Orchard shopping mall...
Eh, wad fruit is this? Avocado? When i saw the huge "Cartier" brand outside the mall, i noe this isn't my type of shopping mall..
Headed back towards the east after this.. Cycling along Orchard Road in the midst of the peak hr is one kinda experience.. The new tyre feels good, hopefully there will be more time for such rides next time..
