anyone interested to join?? #2: A bike ride around Pulau Ubi

Changi Point Ferry Terminal
Hop on a bumboat for the 10- minute trip over to Pulau Ubin – a journey that will take you back half a century as you explore the last kampong village in Singapore.
Cost: $5 round trip (additional $4 if you’re bringing your own bike)
Rent A Bike
Depending on your riding skills and budget, choose a bike to venture out on.
Cost: Bikes vary in price between $4 and $12; they are willing to bargain, so work your magic.

Spot A Wild Pig
Keep your eye out for these when riding through the forest – they like to hide in the trees and chomp on fallen coconuts.

Watch Out For Web
Huge spiders dangle from trees alongside the paths. Stop to check out the size, but most likely you’ll want to see and not touch.

Take A Coconut Break
Use the pigs as inspiration and sip on a chilled Thai coconut to regain energy.
Cost: $2.50 at most restaurants and rest stops along the way.

Stroll Down The Boardwalk
Give yourself a break from the bike – look out for a peculiar tree growing in the middle of the water.

Continue Down The Path
Wander alongside mangroves, and try spotting a few mudskippers scurrying along the shore

Climb To The Top
At the end of the boardwalk, on the eastern tip of the island, is a tall viewing tower with great views of Singapore and Malaysia. Just make sure you have restored enough energy to make it up the steps.

Become A Beach Bum
Rest on the sand and meditate, read a good book or just enjoy the view.

Taste The Local Flavours
Feast on fresh seafood by the water; you just might catch a glimpse of what’s on your plate if you look over the deck.
Cost: Dishes at most restaurants range from $6 to $15. ... olo-part-1

how about cycling at east coast park this weekend?
Without PASSION, there is no DRIVE. Without FOCUS, there is no DIRECTION. Ready for the big plunge...
