Cycling at 6pm

Took off from home at 6pm, expecting to get to Raffles City slightly before 7pm, leaving me enough time to clean up a little before getting to the classroom in time. Didn’t work out that way. Traffic was heavy: it was the peak period, and it’s definitely different from cycling in the weekend, when cars were fewer and drivers more relaxed. Drivers at 6pm are anxious to get home, so they drive faster and definitely though not lethally, but more recklessly. On my cycle home at about 8.15pm, I encountered a car cutting lanes diagonally at high speed, just in front of me on a broad road. Cycling is definitely not for the faint hearted. Also, there were no decent bicycle parks in that area, so I had to contend with parking at a backlane next to the abandoned Capitol Building. It was the best choice available. Also remember to put up your safety light at the rear when riding in the dark.
