This year's OCBC 39k cycle was even funnier as there were actually 4 quite demanding slopes to negotiate. There were loads of locals with their 4 digit bikes pushing their bikes up the 1st slope which was only after 1km![/quote]

I've not been out around Singapore much, (I arrived from Bristol, UK a month ago) but where can you find 4 demanding slopes???

LOL - good point though. Most people do their 'hill training' at Mount Faber where you can repeat the loop as often as you want - and the hill is pretty hard work after the 10th time.

I'm so glad they've included this text in the rules because otherwise everyone might think that is is the correct way to ride :roll:.
