3rd June night ride 2011

lovecycling crew, lighted by our own lights @ MBS 
I don't usually do night rides as by the time I reached home and settle my little momo(I pat her to sleep).. I am usually konk out too... But on 3rd June, I rode from Pungol to meet my friends at Kallang MRT, with Poh huat riding with me. On reaching the meet point I was pleasantly surprised at the turnout... 70 riders!

Apparently another group - West riders also joined us..Wonderful! After a safety/route briefing by Steve and Zack, the whole group started off around 1150am. We rode around Geylang toward Paya lebar. The roads were relatively quiet and the weather really cool and nice.

Esther and Joeel almost reaching Chomp chomp
We rode as a group blinking lights and some with blaring music setup. Great feeling... seeing all bikes of size and types riding together.

Very soon, we reached Chomp chomp for a pitstop. Many went for sugar cane juice, some had dessert...I had Wanton noodle from the end store. Nice! Also met Cat and hubby who was waiting for us there. I could see from their faces.. they wanted to join... and I think they will soon!

Blurry eyed.. beautiful night
Zack on Sweeping duties... thanks man!
From Chomp chomp we headed to Ang Mo kio> Marymount road> Thomson road> Novea Square > Newton circus.  Around Marymount road, xalvinkwax  had a small spill on the road...which he looked alright but decided not to continue. KS and Clarence did the gentlemen thing and waited his dad to pick him.  Thumbs up for the lovecycling crew!  We did a short break at Newton circus and then rolled once more toward Scotts road... it was then the heavens opened. Luckily we we near Orchard road and took shelter at Paragon.
James from Australia. Welcome!

It was already 2.3am then.. so it was relatively quiet... goofing around and just chatting to wait out the rain. Half an hour later the rain stop and we cycled toward Bras Besah > Esplande>MBS. Along the way, we also saw some chaps sitting on the kerbside.. puking (drink too much)...also had 6 young man riding MTB joining us for awhile... We ended the ride at MBS...looking at the beautiful night scape...I think we will be doing this soon again.
Distance covered: 65 km
Thanks Zack, Steve, Bernice, Steven, Clarence and other for making this ride a pleasurable and safe experience!
