This is another unique place which will be gone very soon. Partly that is. Last year we visited the place and met some really passionate folks who wanted to preserve it. They call themselves Brownies , if u like to know more, click the link.
And please go there quick... almost going be start clearing out and it is in the Straits time too.
The route was quite complicated as I have not really ridden there much. Luckily I have someone who do. That's our veteran LCSG old bird, Steven Tang. He even made the extra effort to recce the route and find out the history around the place. Starting from Caldecott MRT station, it was a gentle roll toward Andrew road and then getting hopelessly lost at mount peasant area.

Due to a minor accident, we asked the main group to proceed while we took care of the young man.
He apparently jammed his brakes as he approached a speed bump down a slope. Luckily, Eugene LA was there and help dress his wounds. We decided that it would be best he went home and seek medical treatment. After the drama, we went to look for the main group and the heavens opened at Mediacorp. Uncle KC shouted to me: "Call Zoe Tay and see if we can hide at her house.. haha"
It continued raining as we approached BB and we didn't explore much. Still there were quite afew people walking and braving the rain. I guess in the forrage, Claire must be still there, sharing the BB stories.
From Bukit Brown, we cycled to Kheem hock road towards Adam food centre. A hot coffee and yummy makan made every one feel much better. Stomaches filled, we dispersed at Adam food market and guided the rest back to Caledcott MRT. Thanks to Steven Tang excellent recce, I now know this place better. And I will come and ride this route again. What a nice way to spend a sunday morning!
