|Cycling in Singapore|
So... I like to state this. Riding in Singapore is dicey. This is complicated by the fact that cyclists should use the road according to the Traffic laws. Some would ask, "R u sure???" yes really! But there are some roads that even I will not try to ride - some really crazy and hairy places.... Farrer road, Geylang, thomson road, China town, Kranji road to name a few. So what gives? Should we just seek "that drivers respect the cyclists and just let things be". Or can we do it better to make the issue known? How many more cyclists would need to be injured or worst killed before the the situation improves?
I like to share with you what the British cyclists did. They invite all the riders to come visit the 10 most dangerous roads to see for them selves. And in the process document(where are the danger points, what can be improve) the entire ride and bring more awareness to the dangers to cyclists and to the authorities. So that things can move faster and make it safer for cyclists. Bravo!!!
Do you think it can work in Singapore? I am thinking to organise one ride. ...would u ride with me, help me document this ride?
5 most dangerous road in Singapore in my opinion:
1) Farrer r\Road
2) Geylang Road
3) Thomson Road
4) Bukit Timah road
5) China town area
Where else? I really like to know ur opinions and how we can make our place more bike friendly. Come on folks, please help me, help us, make the cyclist's voices heard!
Update: Diane have very kindly helped to do a google map for us to list down the danger areas for cycling. Team, please help to add ur areas of concern.Thanks !
