On Sun, 1 Nov, VSS is planning another joint bicycling event with the Singapore Adventurous Meetup Group. This time, instead of ECP, we'll be going to Palau Ubin.

Imagine cycling on rustic Singapore roads. Imagine that you see only green, coconuts trees and barking dogs, with no traffic (not to mention no traffic jams), scenes that are long gone in our daily life on mainland Singapore.

You can take this time travel trip on Pulau Ubin. Cycling is the best way to explore this slice of good old Spore.


8.30am: Participants gather at Changi Ferry Terminal for boat trip to Ubin (best to arrive on Ubin early to get good bikes and to beat the Sunday crowds)
9.00am: Quick breakfast on Ubin
9.30am: Choosing & testing bicycles
9.45am: Safety briefing/grouping/planning of cycling route -> cycling start
12.15pm: Cycling ends/feedback & comments
12.45pm: Arrive back at Changi Ferry Terminal
1.00pm: Lunch on your own or with your newfound friends

Please bring cash for the following expenses

1. Cost of the bumboat: $2.50/person/trip (wef 15 Apr 08).

--- Maximum 12 passengers per trip
--- additional charge if you bring your own bike on the ferry
2. Bicycle rent will vary from $6 - $10 depending on type of bicycle you chose. Bicycles with full suspension highly recommended
3. Breakfast & Lunch

Things you MUST bring or wear:

1. at least 1.5 litres of water/isotonic drinks
2. comfortable shoes & sport wear
3. cap
4. sun block

Please ensure you know EXACTLY how to get to the meetup point and that you arrive ON-TIME. To make sure you arrive on time, it's best to share taxi, as the bus route is very long and unpredictable.
