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.

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.

骑行新加坡河

下午天气很好,等过了5点,气温稍微降了,打算从住家Queenstown骑行新加坡河。

沿着骑行车道,河两侧都是高档公寓和旅馆饭店。虽然疫情看似严重,病例增多,挡不住人们出门吃饭聚会的欲望。当然人数比疫情前少很多。

进入市区,沿河边一边是金融区的高楼大厦,一边是新加坡国家博物馆。在新加坡博物馆附近,有不少准新人在拍婚纱照。

远远望去,河对岸是著名的金沙赌场,楼顶上矗立着船型的游泳池。在游泳池里可以俯瞰新加坡的全景。

然后进入摩天轮附近,因为疫情,摩天轮上没有看到乘客。

F1赛道

摩天轮旁边的路很宽,刷着鲜艳的颜色,还在想怎么看着像F1的赛道。

Singapore F1

这么多年,还是第一次跑来看F1赛道,F1的从这里开始。

天有点黑了,返程回家。让我们看看新加坡的夜景。
