Difficulty Level: Strenuous, because it is long and has lots of turns and crossings, with a little bit of off-road trail.
Route Start/End: Botanic Gardens, but it is a loop, so wherever you’d like to jump on. Instructions begin at the NE corner of Botanic Gardens, at the corner of Kheam Hock Rd and Bukit Timah Rd.
Route Length: 26km +/-
Terrain: Mostly flat with a few ups and downs. A bit rugged between Bukit Brown cemetery to the National Equestrian Centre, a dirt trail for about 450 metres – not for road bikes and narrow tires on that portion. Otherwise, it is all streets, sidewalks and PCNs.
Route Comments: The instructions for this ride begin at the NE corner of the Botanic Gardens, at the intersection of Bukit Timah Rd and Kheam Hock Rd. This ride covers a lot of ground, from quiet streets, to the historic Bukit Brown cemetery, natural parks, river-side PCNs and urban downtown busy streets. There are lots of opportunities to see otters, dragon boating and to visit some ancesters!
Caution: This route follows a fair number of streets without sidewalks, busy sidewalks and busy PCNs. Please alert fellow pedestrians and cyclist to your presence by ringing your bell.
