Vicky, I am not able to join u this morning ;( something has come up for my work . See you next tiime
Sharon this is the old train track route of sinapore malaysia train which is now cleared. There are various places where you can start but I start from Hendhede walk just behind the Old fire station( Upper bukit timah road) is its just behind my condo. Once you are on the track you can head to north or south as you wish. I tried last week and headed south towards bukit timah station and further and find it interesting. I plan to ride all the way to starting point which is around 10.9 km from my place this weekend. If you plan do let me know and I will join if possible.

I went all the way down and then back a few weeks ago. The ride from Bukit Timah and back again is about 24 km.
I recorded a track during the ride: http://app.strava.com...
Thanks Elias! This route detail is useful!!
It seems that you took the railtrack sans the route off Hinhede into Bt Timah and beyond. I always thought the railway from Spooner road to Bt Timah was closed off somwhere. Since you've done it recently, I'll try to catch some time soon to do that as well! I hope not to hit much (if any) of the main traffic roads.
HI Elias I plan to ride from Bukit Timah to the starting point and back again on sat morning and I checked on the map that should be around 22-24 km return ride. I think it should be a good ride.
Vicky, your route sounds interesting. I gathered from your post that it is good for beginners. Could you possibly share the route with me/ us so I could ride the route on my own the next time to start off?
How untimely! I'm tied up this weekend.Any other outings for next weekend or the 2nd or last weekend of November?
I'm heading out on Sunday morning. It'll probably be Pulau Ubin. I usually go early in the morning.
I am planning a bike ride this Saturday on the Singapore- Woodlands old railway track. Its an interesting track and I will start near hendhede walk behind old fire station. Its good for newbies to build stamina before hitting the mountain trial as you will learn to negotiate rough path. Will start around 7 in the morning, back by 9. Any one interested can message and join me.
Any more such rides for newbies? I got my mountain bike recently and would like to get initiated into mountain biking!
Guys could not hit last time. Lets make this again this saturday. I have suggested a bukit timah mtb ride this weekend. All are welcome.

I suggest we try T15 to Gangsa and back. or we could just do T15. I will most likely be riding tonight with some friends.

I will have to join the next one. Sent my bike down to the bike shop and couldn't get off work to pick it up in time. Have a good ride!
Ok guess we change it back to 8.30am
0 · May 24, 2012
Changing the time now would probably cause more trouble than it's worth, in my opinion.
Anyway if any1 feel uncomfortable abt 7.30am we still can make it 8.30am. so every1 juz put the time u feel comfortable with it and let the rest know abt it
Other on confirmed list please confirm to start at 7.30 am.
I'm ok with it
Guys lets start early. Better to complete before its too hot. If every one is comfortable we can start at 7.30. Don't know weather some people are coming from long distance.
Lol i'm not too sure is it 7am or 8.30am

Tommy, the time should be the same. Just check weather at the NEA website on actual day and let all know if ride is on. All the numbers are on this page. Have fun and will join u guys next time. My back is killing me right now, can't stand up straight.
So u guys want to meet up wat time this coming sat?
To marcelo:Ok. Take care and hope u can join us next time. So the rest still going right? To mary :yes we have to bring our own bike

Guys, very sorry I cant make it for the ride due to an injury i got riding BT today. Please carry on without me and I hope to see some pics. :(
so I presume there's no bike rental & we have to transport our own bike to Bukit Timah?
Nice vicky we be counting on u
0 · May 20, 2012
Lol i stay at jurong east
Aaah , what I meant was , where do you live tommy ? Maybe I can give u a ride to the bukit timah nature reserve ;)
Sure i live in neighboorhood and know a nice place for bd.
How abt After the ride let's have breakfast together
0 · May 19, 2012
Actually, a first timer would do it in about an hour. If you're experienced you do it in half hour and the pros do it in about 20 minutes.
Yenny first timer may take up to 2 hrs. Pros do it in half an hr.
??? R u asking am i staying in the group or do u mean where i stay?
Tommy - whereabouts are u staying ?
Yes the first portion of the trial - that super duper climb - thank goodness for granny gear !!
Hi this is Yenni . How long do you think the ride will take to complete - roughly ? :) my contact[masked]
Anastasio, I know the feeling.
A while back, I changed the way I get up those stairs, and now it's much easier. I'll show you how I do it when we get out there. :-)
Lol it not seem it's really very long and i have check tat area don't traffic light guess really have carry it over-.-ll
just finished BT toady and the staircase seems longer every time.
You'd better be prepared to carry the bike anyway, since these is a huge staircase (much worse than the overpass) at the end of the trail. :-)
Ladies and Gents, The ride is confirmed. will sms all an update on 26th at 7am. If weather is fine the ride is on..
Tommy, if you dont want to carry your bike I think there's a traffic light junction leading to the PIE. not sure if can cross there.
You just carry the bike over the overpass, I suppose? At least that's what I did when I had to get across the other way.
Next: Invite friends
Well... just pick up mountain bike riding and so thought to start a group for some off road fun as well as leisure riding.
All levels of riding welcome so join in.
The objective is to have fun and make friends of common interest through group rides. The experienced guys can share tips with the newbies.. (like me Haha).
So sign up and be invited to rides coming up!
