Briskwalk photos/Carine on a long run

Category : Singapore Naturalist

Just put up the briskwalk photos I took when I biked down to look in on them. The briskwalk guides each had an orange sweat towel and everyone had green name tags; it looked very organised. And everyone made it up to the Bukit Timah summit between 1:40-2:00. Pretty good timing! The participants were well looked after throughout by a competent bunch of briskwalk guides who looked it! Quite a joy to see.

I grabbed a chance to do a little offroad around Bukit Timah as well, and recall the feeling of what its like to nearly fall off a bike! I have to go back and recover my skills, with a group of patient mountain bikers from WheelsAreTurning some day.

When I rode out to meet the group at the Bukit Timah Vistor Centre and report the number to NParks, I got to see the train. Such joy! Always reminds me of Mandai mangroves where we have to cross the train tracks to get into the forest.

As I rode in at 7.45am, I realised that Rifle Range Road is a VERY long and undulating road - I salute all the joggers who run through there and further onto MacRitchie.

And who else should I meet at 8.20am, but Carine on a long (LSD) run from Bukit Timah to MacRitchie. As I prepared to take a photo of the briskwalkers at the narrow pedestrian way on the Rifle Range Road bridge over the BKE, a jogger appeared at my arm, and very considerately waited for me to finish taking the photo. I looked up and it was Carine!

Later, while riding back after breakfast, a heavily-laden truck peruaded me to take the Ulu Pandan-Ghim Moh park connector instead of Holland Road. As I headed past the Ulu Pandan-Clementi junction, I saw her again!
