Ride for Hope flags off!

Category : cycling

After months of planning, briefings, preparations, training rides and fund-raising, Ride for Hope 2005 flagged off at 6pm (the photo EXIF data says 5.56pm); right on schedule. Organiser Eric Tan must be a very happy man right now!

Here are 100+ photos taken just before and up to the flagging off. The riders headed out towards East Coast and Changi thereafter. See the route (forgive us the "Changi Coaster" error!)

Ladybug, myself and others will join them tomorrow morning to take over the lead cyclists andd blocking duty from the first leg cyclists. We'll have to ride down to China Square at the unearthly hour of 3.45am, to be there early enough to sort out the marshalls, prepare the briefing etc.

Meanwhile William and his entourage of 150+ riders should be reaching Kranji Resservoir now, their supper point. Most intend to ride the complete 300km with him. William should be in prime condition, having just completed 7 marathons (actually more since he had backup races) in 7 continents.

Since I have just recovered from the bout of fever and the flu myself, it'll be a challenge. Off to bed now, as I will have to be eagle-eyed and on full alert for 12 hours of traffic from 6am tomorrow. Well, it'll be a priviledge to witness William's endeavour. And hopefully we've met our fund raising targets and keep at least one of the Senior CitizensŐ Health Care Centres open.
