To Tanjong Pagar, 32 km. Today is the first day in my life that I've cycled to the office. I do it after work. Turns out to be 10 minutes faster than by train, door to door. On the way home, there are three close calls on the road, the last time involving a lady who goes straight while in a lane for turning. My bicycle feels skittish; I'm back on slicks after being on knobbies since early Mar. It takes some getting used to. And I'm still revelling in this month's race victory; I see the detailed results today. Missed one position by a second. If I'd joined the Weekend Warrior category, I'd have been fifth. And if I was young enough for the Men' Junior, I'd have been 4th!
