Actually I do support making a "senior" rider group if we are all around the same generation, it helps us set priorities and plan more safer. Last time I see a lot of younger folks, they don't really follow safe or relax riding style and just chiong around cutting off traffic.

Not my kind of riding lor, I want to beat 50km/l efficiency at highway speed, help new riders and drivers along the way, rekindle the old cooperative spirit from our grandfather time. 

Drivers when I was young used to be super friendly, all waving at each other on the road. Nowadays not so, unless you run into friendly uncles or come across drivers who allow a motorbike to keep a proper safety distance in lane. 

There are quite a lot of improvements to road safety now, compared to 10 years ago. I don't get tailgated or pushed out of lane ever since I got the current bike. Despite maintain 70-80 lane 2 all the way. 

A few friendly makan and photo sessions to get used to ride styles and we can start planning more ambitious activities.

Managed to have a mini meet while grocery shopping 😂🛒🛍️

Thinking of going Pasar malam one of these days but need to decide on venue and suitable meet up locations. As it will be crowded there and need to go slightly earlier in the evenings.

Thumbs up for dawn rider. Honestly early morning weekend is the best time to run the bikes, if west side or central I got plenty of routes to cruise on. Many of them can just relax drive straight on and just enjoy sightseeing then end up at some breakfast place. Like classic Cafe racers haha 

After meet a few times can try going to scenic spots at just the right time to catch sunrise.

Haha, same sentiment. Haven't visited LP1 due to the same reason, but would consider riding a bicycle to Tuas area rather then sharing the road with the speeding trucks, and i remember alot of debris and pot hole on Tuas road too.

Modern name is still known as 99 bends. The GAP is as in 'gap' between the hills, just an old name used long time ago during British days. But it's still a dangerous route given that road is 1 lane and narrow too, 1 accident and the whole route will be jam.

Here, already went LP1 last year several times to break in engine at night. A rider asked me to take photo of his bike. Then a kaki brought me to find the elusive Tuas carpark beside the beach, no more already, Tuas Coast area is now reclaimed land. 

There's a lot of stuff pasted on LP1, can act like pilgrimage and look at it 🤣

There's a very fun viaduct super high up following MRT line at Tuas, but don't go at high speed if you're scared of wind. Giant windshields might cause unstable handling. 

There are a lot of photo op locations at Tuas but got to follow me to find them 😂

actually I heard there's a light house around LP1.. I dun mind visiting the light house.. but I heard need to walk in.. haha...

Bicycle? nvm.. I go from Punggol to MBS and back to Punggol already 6-7 hours.. (almost give up but no way to give up).. LOL..

 

Icic.. maybe the group that I'm with usually speaks in Chinese and hokkiens.. so we always say 99 bend.. I only recently heard GAP when people showcase their videos.. LOL..

You all ask for routes hor, try to just use your daily commuting or dispatch routes but go at night you will see they are completely different feeling. 

One route below is "Visiting Desmond" route cos it goes thru Mandai Rd to the North East via Seletar Link, which is fun to cruise at night when no lorries around. 

The other one is West Coast highway just go straight until Tanah Merah. Try going non stop and see if backside pain 😂

I have some other secret routes such as doing convoy thru Turf Club area (totally no lighting), various industrial zones near CCK and Kranji useful to "charge battery". 

West Coast Highway on weekends please be wary of cyclist groups they cycle on the highway viaduct blocking heavy vehicles sometimes.

hahaha.. nice way to put it across.. visiting Desmond at my favourite "ride pass" hang out place.. haha..

night time is good to ride but most places too dark to take nice photo.. day time photos nice but too hot to ride.. haha
