Before that day, the furthest we ever cycle is from home to West Coast Park and back. 13KM. But on Christmas day, Kay Kay broke his record.
==== Updates ====
Updates (27/12/2015) – We brought Kay Kay to cycle again at Garden by the Bay, Marina Barrage to East Coast Park then back to MBS and opposite of MBS. So, we did 25.39KM today (and I only started my RunKeeper after 1-2km later, forgot to turn it on). So, I think he could have easily bike for 26-27km today. hahaha
==== End of Update ====
Here is a video clip of Kay riding his Islabike. His islabike is only 6.6lbs (less than 3KG).
Here is almost at the finishing. Back to our car.
Takes 2.13 hour to complete the 20.36 km ride. Yeah!
It’s just an almost straight line ride.
Oh ya. I bought myself and my wife a present this year. A pair of folding bikes.
It is a tern folding bike. Surprisingly very easy mechanism to fold.
It is the lightest of the tern bikes. 9.66kg. I didn’t get the other brand who has the lightest bike around 8.9kg. Because it has the limitation of 90kg. I am at the edge. hahahaha. And I don’t like those folding mechanism too.
Here is the Tern Verge X10 introduction video.
Once it folded up, it looks like this. Notice that the two wheels are on the ground and you can move them forward (not backward, as the pedal will move if you move backward)
So you can push the bike with two wheels on the ground forward. Very cool.
So I took it for a ride the next day. And it is definitely slower than my Trek hybrid. Much much slower. But hey, I only buy the bike for recreation, so no need to ride fast. It is one of the fast folding bike already. hahaha
I installed a Cateye bike computer.
And a nice looking iPhone holder.
I bought the bike from a near by bike shop, “My Bike Shop”. There is one at MidView City and one at Faber Drive. The one at Clementi is going to move to town area.
So, I fitted both adult bikes in the car boot, and put two much lighter children bike at the back. I feel more secure this way rather to have two huge adult bikes at the back.
The combine weight of these two kids bike is not more than 11kg. So, you can tight it tighter and when you drive on the road it is not as shaky.
Let’s begin our ride.
How I miss those days I spent riding bike, roller blading at East Coast Park. Now as the kids has reached primary school (both), we can bring them out more here.
Let’s take a selfie at every place we ride.
It is a long ride, but the kids actually enjoys it.
Just outside the Safra Golf Club, there is this Tool Station. Cool indeed.
It even has a pump.
Pump Air by stepping on it.
Very happy kid today.
Happy Riding Bike day.
