Cycling is like life. Cycling with no goal is meaningless. What meaning is there cycling in circles? Or living aimlessly? Meaning comes from direction and destination. Join me in my life's journey on a mountain bike :)

Black diamond

Oct distance travelled: 178 km

To Pulau Ubin, 65 km. When the alarm clock screams, I lie in bed thinking, "to sleep or to go?" Stress level rises before I'm out of bed. I decide to go for the "focus group" ride at Ketam Mountain Bike Trail. It is a ride worth waking up for. I like the trails marked "blue diamond" as they are a relaxing ride, compared to the black diamond. One part passes a drop to oblivion. My tyres scrabble for traction and at one point, I hold onto a tree. Semi-slick tyres and road pedals not recommended, but front suspension is optional.
