Secret Pedals: Chinese Gardens, NTU and Dragon Kilns

Ride #7: Chinese Gardens, NTU and Dragon Kilns

Difficulty Level: Moderate

Route Start/End: Jurong Lake Garden/Chinese Gardens Carpark

Route Length: 23km +/-

Terrain: Mostly flat until you get to Jurong Hill and NTU, which are definitely NOT flat. The ride is primarily PCNs and sidewalks, but there are a few on-street sections to be aware of.

Route Comments: This is a ride I thoroughly enjoy because it has long stretches of PCNs, stunning views and parks, quirky history, amazing architecture at NTU, hills for a good workout, and you can find the largest wood-fired kiln on the island (probably the only). Then it’s sidewalks and PCN’s back to Chinese Gardens. (You even go past the City Harvest Church, the megachurch where 5 of the founders “borrowed” millions of dollars – considered the biggest misuse of charity funds in Singapore history.)

Caution: This route is a combination of PCNs, sidewalks and a little bit of streets. Caution required.
