Like or dislike?
To Lim Chu Kang via Changi, 110 km. I look at the grey sky and feel blue. It's been raining all day, all over the island. When the rain stops in the evening, I hit the road. But it feels like a chore. Which spells trouble. Without cycling, there's no "cycle-therapy" and I'll go crazy (since I can't afford psychotherapy). If the cure is driving me crazy ... A family of pedestrians try to kamikaze into me. Then a bus gets so close. A a pair of cyclists weave into my path though the road is three lanes wide. Ah, I get it. I just dislike cycling in Singapore, not cycling as such. Proof: I'm looking forward to cycling in Malaysia in two week's time. And grimly satisfied that I log a century ride despite the weather.
