LCSG supports Nparks Rower Cove ride. 30th March 2019

The location was abit off the beaten path, esp if u are coming via public transport. But it did not deter the folks of LCSG coming from all different places to support the event. Here's the Straits time article on the event.  
The ride was actually a very short route from the Seletar Heritage trees to Rower cove. I was very appreciative that riders understood why we came here and didn't really mind the short distance. Thanks guys!

The importance of today event is to mark the location as the node for the on going Round island Route by Nparks. Rower cove is located at the Seletar End of the Yishun Dam road. From Rowers cove, Minister Wong shared today that cyclists, joggers can go directly to the City.  The route, covering about 60 km will be completed by 2020 and for the western sector of Singapore, it will be addressed and completed in due time. Also today was the launch of the C2C app which is more a trail walking app that allows user to find their way and learn more fauna/flora as they walk.  It spans from Punggol Coney island to Jurong lake district and when u take photos on the designated spots, there will be points to collect and redeem - I will share more seperately on the C2C app. 
Here's some of the nice photos by uncle KC and other riders.
