Cycling in Singapore: PCN is the way to go
Call it the perfect storm if you like: the convergence of sky-high COEs, packed MRT trains and buses and frequent train breakdowns.
All this is enough to make you tear out whatever remains of your hair.
However before you do that there is a perfect solution to our transport woes.
And that is to take up cycling.
It’s now a worthwhile idea as pavements are generally wide and the Park Connector Network (PCN) has been expanded.
You not only save on transport fares, car parks but get some exercise too. And ,of course, the days of inhaling armpits are over.
Last evening, I discovered a route to Marina Bay from Yio Chu Kang Road using mainly the PCN without needing to cycle on the road.
The route: AMK Ave 5 PCN-Ave 10-Ave 1-Bishan Road-Bishan Park PCN-Kallang River PCN-Marina Bay
I covered the 15 km distance in an hour.
Being a compact country, Singapore is ideally suited to cycling. Perhaps, with the political will Singapore can become another cycling capital of Asia like Taiwan. We are already rivals in the culinary domain.
