Our rides attendance is steadily growing and often we get responses from people why they do not join mostly centering around a few reasons:
“You guys are too fast”
“I do not like riding on the road”
“I do not ride at night”
We FULLY understand but we have a growing number of riders but we observe a few things:
- We ride at speeds we are comfortable
- We advocate safety (Helmets, lights and observation of traffic rules)
- We wait for each other and especially newbies
If you look at our photos shared, a number of our riders are women and young adults and our rider ages have a wide range from 16 to 60 years. We typically split into 2 groups: the regulars and the noobs.
Routes on Fridays are the Western side of Singapore, at that time of the evening, traffic thins after 9pm.
With the new rules and speed limits on PCNs, the newbie rides for Saturday mornings have to be at locations where the roads are quiter and so far, we have identified Seletar Aerospace Hub as a good route. We will be encouraging riders to ride the “horseshoe circuit” on the road as it is 10km each time. Also it allows riders to build up confidence while on the road.
For those who are thinking of joining us, below is a guide
Last but not least the Monday night rides:
3-4 loops around Seletar Aerospace hub at night. This one is just sustained rides at the average 28-30km/h pace. We have strong riders who pull the rest and it is a ride regime that allows you to train up your stamina.
See you soon!
