This round the Singapore Island cycling trip was made in February 2018, it all started with my cycling exploration to cycle via PCN to Woodlands for the first time from Sengkang. After my breakfast at 8+am, i unknowingly began my 122.8km journey round the Singapore Island !
I was an occasional beginner Cyclist who just bought my mountain bike late last year, but i had completed a 67km half island trip before this Round Island Route. http://sengkangtopunggol.sg/pcn-cycle-sengkang-punggol-marina-bay-sands-gardens-bay-east-coast-changi/

First time taking my personal “Public Transport” and zipping through the busy Central Business Districts CBD of Singapore !
Marina Bay Sands & Singapore Flyer
Baby Merlion at Fullerton
Garden by The Bay & Super Trees
Flower Domes and MBS
Seafood Centre at East Coast Parkway. By then, the battery of my Phone was low batt. So as to conserve energy, few pictures were taken afterwards
Last water Point at ECP before heading to the Coastal Road
Coastal Road, long straight road heading towards Changi
i was planning to go to Changi via Coastal Road and looping back via Pasir Ris then back to Punggol and Seng Kang. But to my dismay, there was a major road block and no one can pass though as these were security blocks for aircrafts unloading for upcoming Singapore Airshow !!! i had to make a detour U-Turn !!! i literally begged the security officers to let me pass, but there is no way !!! it was already late and i had to give up the distance covered and make a Detour !!!
Taking a detour, i headed for the nearest Underpass. Travelled via PCN to reach Bedok Food Centre for a pit-stop.
Passed by Bedok Reservoir and then Tampines West MRT.
Reaching Pasir Ris New Hawker Centre for a drink. My bike was parked at one of the racks. The one and only at this late hour !
Finally reaching Lorong Halus bridge and crossing it to reach Punggol
Completed my Round Island Route of 122.8km, utilised mainly PCN and road pavements. The whole journey took me about 14hours !!! ( Slow ride as it started drizzling at the second half, Makan & pitstops, also, Stayed in shelter due to Rain ). Pro cyclist with super light road-bike can go round island on roads in about 2-3hours. to me, it was a Personal Achievement with my mountain bike !
