Century Ride

Did my maiden century ride on this 'small' island last Sunday. Singapore is only 20km x 40km wide.

My route was clockwise from Tampines via Kembangan-Harbour Front - Boon Lay - Keranji (via Bahar Rd) - Woodlands - Yishun-Serangoon - ECP - Bedok and back to Tampines.

The best time of the ride was from Marsiling to Yishun where I rode in the rain. (minus the thunder/lightning)

Highlight: The Teluk Blangah & Pasir Panjang roads are super flat and shaded by the West Coast elevated Highway. While Bahar Road to Kranji is wide (6 lanes) but very quiet. Close view of Johor Bahru from Keranji Reservoir Park. Nice!

Overall: Good weather (+ rain & overcast in most places), Flat Roads, Moderate Traffic = 114km of total distance.
