Change is inevitable

(except from vending machines).

The plan was a 34 km Mandai-Yishun Dam ride, but there was a route change.

Hence, instead of the picture above...

I get to post this.

149.8 miles = 239.7 km

I guess this is what jocks (or himbos) call having a pair?

And you know what?

We did.

That was fun, guys!

Let's do it again sometime!

Ride on!

This reminds me of one of the best rides I ever had  :-)

No one's home at the wheel

First, Black Mountain, now this:

What happened 15 minutes into a 21 mile (34 km) race on a highway between Playa Bagdad and Matamoros, Mexico. And there was even a police escort!

Someone's helmet came off.

1 killed, 10 injured.

The 28-year-old driver was allegedly drunk and had fallen asleep at the wheel.

Fatality: Alejandro Alvarez, 37.


Speaking from experience, I would say SCUBA diving, rock climbing, caving, are safer than riding on the road.
