Explore cycling path from Singapore river to Bishan park

In this afternoon, I plan to cycling to Bishan park along Singapore river. But after Kallang river, the path is becoming worse, because there is not direct path along the Kallang river. I must cycle away river, enter into motorcycle road, cross red light and then enter into river path. So when I arrive Whampoa, I decide back.

Early back will me time to explore OCBC stadium and golden garden in the day.

Good morning Friday, friends, relaxed and exercising

On the Friday morning, a little relaxed, do not need wake up early to prepare breakfast for school children because secondary school open later on Friday. So I have time to do long-walking morning exercise in neighborhood park.

It is Friday morning, not too many exercising people like in the evening. Pigeons, squirrels are looking for their breakfast. It is not the scene what I can find in the evening.

Cycling path summary explored in Singapore up to now

Since moving into Queens town and buying bicycle, weekend cycling is not only a must exercise but also is a way to explore Singapore. Without bicycle I normally walk at most 5-km around my living. Now 20km is normal. It gives me more chances to explore every corner in Singapore, which cannot be when taking bus or driving car. Up to now, I have explored some neighborhood cycling path. Although I have written posts about them, here I will summarize the paths I have explored.

Top-1: cycling along Singapore river, garden by the bay, Marina barrage, east cost beach, until Changi beach (I only reach east cost park, 1-way already >20km. Maybe next time leave home early to arrive changi beach). It is cycling friendly, flat road. There are many featured spotlights, singapore-river-and-beautiful-night-scene. If tired and hungry, there are many places to resting and eating. In the evening, there is amazing night view.

Top-2 green rail way. Currently in central, the segment is open between Tanjong Pagar railway station (old) and Bukit Timah, about 12km. The final destination is Wooland railway station (old) , which is not connected with Bukit Timah segment up to now.

Besides cycling in the railway, you can challenge yourself, and cycle in the hill road. After Bukit Timah railway bridge, you can switch to the direction of Temasek club, and into the hill road. It is up, down, and winding mountain path. The destination is one entry of MaRitchie nature trail & reservoir park.

It is better cycling in the morning, enjoying fresh air and wild view. The road is narrow, and there are many cyclists and jogging. So you must be careful and not too high speed (limit 10km). In the weekend morning (~9:30am), there are traffic police in the Bukit Timah to test cycling speed. Be a good cyclist careful for you and others.

Recommend cycling in the day because in the evening, there is not light in the railway green road.

Top-3: Ulu Pandan river. If you live in central, you can cycle along the railway road and exit in Ghim Moh. In the morning, you can have a short rest and eat breakfast in Ghim Moh wet market, then enter into Ulu Pandan river. Along the river, you can cycle to Jurong east.

Recently I cycles into Sentosa. Because it is a little later after 6pm. There is cycling road from Vivo city to Sentosa Cove. It is also up-down hill road. But at the Sentosa Cove, there is nothing to see because many hotels locate there, and there is no way to beach. Then I cycles to Siloso beach. Because of Covid’19, it is quiet in the evening, and beach is closed.

For cycling, it is no recommended to Sentosa. There is no cycling path (except to Sentosa cove). You must share with car. So you must be very careful.

Ghim moh carrot cake

This morning 30-min cycling to Ghim Moh to buy my favorite carrot cake. My son said carrot cake in Redhill market not good.

As normal, long queue. The family cooker is busy to cooking white and black carrot cake. The young boss is preparing eggs and ask each customer preorder. Each time asks 4-5 persons and still remember what we order. Pretty memory.

Cycling outside city, along ulu pandas river

3 years ago, in the evening, I like to walking along ulu pandan river, near Ghim moh and holland village. Since railway green way open and Covid-19, has never come.

This weekend, cycling along ulu pandas river. Staring from commonwealth ave entry near grim moh, and ending commonwealth near ending hiring east.

There are many upgrading and changes. Many years ago, only one walking road along the river. Now there is another walking road in another side. Great jobs of Singapore government.

I still remember fishing in the river with friends when my child is kindergarten and primary school.

Ulu pandan river is great cycling, sport, and rest for neighborhood. You can cycling from west along the river then connect to city along the railway green road.

Hen, chick, and hen in neighboring park,楼下的母鸡小鸡和公鸡

母鸡和小鸡, hen and chicks. How many chicks you find?

In the neighborhood park outside the Hdb house building, there is a hen with her chicks, about 4. Every morning when I and my Huber walking along the small park road, they are wandering the flowers and grasses, searching food. There is also a red cock, he is crowing.

When Huber saw them first time, he wanted to play with them. But they are fighting. My Huber fled.

在住宅楼下的花丛和草地里,1只母鸡带着4、5只小鸡,每天在觅食。一只大红公鸡,大早晨的不断打鸣。

早晨带着我们的小黑狗huber 在楼下遛弯儿,常常看到他们。第一次见到母鸡和小鸡的时候,hubber想上去打个招呼,结果招致母鸡恶狠狠的上来,要啄他,吓得小黑狗落荒而逃。以后在见到他们,就躲远了。
