NTU Bike Rally 2007 briefing

Category : cycling

It was over real quick.

We will be starting out from East Coast Park and head west pretty much along the usual routes, but the rest points will be fewer, I think. From previous rides, it will take between 6 - 7.5 hours.

There are apparently 300-400 of us and we'll be flagged off at about 6.30pm. I suppose they will let the riders sort ourselves out and safety riders will be scattered amongst the cyclists. CISCO riders will look out for us but we'll have to follow all traffic lights, as usual.

They will provide sandwiches along the way so my high-metab kakis got worried so I whipped up some car support. Since I am just rediscovering my cycling legs, I also thought it prudent to have some 100+ and ice support! KMY's butt was traumatised so badly by the 2002 ride, he decided not to go for this ride - so he has very nicely agreed to provide food and drink support!

Chi's singlet was too small, so I passed him my larger one and will have to cut open the other one and sew it to one of my jerseys! For photos, I will dust off my old Sony 2MP camera.

Ladybug and I were impressed by the NTU organisers yet again - they were pleasant and gracious. One reason why this is a favourite event of ours. Thus when I heard about the NTU 2007 Rally a day before the registration deadline, I immediately said I was going and filled up my form. Ladybug, Cat and Chi joined me and I sent off our check by Local Urgent Mail the next day.

It's just a week away now and I better read my recipe for a long distance ride (2004).
