Jan distance: 716 km
Punggol, 35 km. I’m supposed to go for a walk with friends today. But it became a solo ride when one of them calls in sick at 4 am.
The weather is cool, the roads almost empty. Rather than let the time go to waste, I go ride. At one point, there are more cyclists on the road than cars. I’m overtaken by a mini velo. I want one of them for travelling. It should be able to fit into a standard suitcase and taxi.
At Seletar, I reminisce about riding abroad: cool weather, cool sights, no traffic and no traffic lights.
This ride serves another purpose: if my bicycle was damaged during the trip from Myanmar, I'll know and will claim insurance.
