Cycling three consecutive days for the first time

Saturday was to the SGX centre, Sunday was to Hotel 81 at Jalan Besar, Monday was to China Square Central. Nothing much to comment on for the first 2 days. Just that they took about an hour each. On Saturday I took the Dover- Holland Road- Orchard- River Valley next to Great World City- Chinatown- Shenton Way route. Sunday I took the Dover- Holland Road- Orchard- Prinsep Street- Jalan Besar. Monday I took the Dover-Holland Road- Queenstown MRT station- Redhill MRT station- Tiong Bahru Mrt station- Outram MRT station- down Chinatown to China Square Central. An interesting finding, however, is that on Monday, I found the road next to the car showrooms at Redhill MRT station is very smooth. Good for test drives. Very importantly: leave the house earlier than you expect to reach your destination because cycling can be unpredictable- road diversions, joining of roads to a major artillery: case in which you find yourself in the middle of the road with fast traffic on both sides. Also, if there is no bicycle park available, park your bike considerately at a place where there will be no obstruction to both human and vehicular traffic. Preferrably, some place where it is quiet. Also, find locations which you are going for the first time will take more time. Not tired at all. Attire: Singlet and short skirt with shorts underneath. Did not smell sweaty. Lesson to learn also: bring a towel to wash your face before putting on make-up for meetings.
