Nparks cyclist park at East Coast

Nparks cyclist park is the latest park in Singapore. This would be a welcome attraction for families during the school holidays.

Located at East Coast Park, cyclists can try out the tracks and even humps. We heard this green node will be part of Singapore’s Round Island Route (150km).

Carpark D3 is nearest to Nparks cyclist park, which is built over the old Goldkist chalets.

There are two circuits in the 5.4 hectare Nparks Cyclist Park.

L-Plate (Learners Circuit) landscaping and slopes, for kids and cycling newbies.

Kids hone their bike skills and awareness. Once they are confident, they can upgrade to Advanced circuit.

Basic road safety and courtesy etiquette. Take note these “workshops” are only available during the “opening” day.

There are new F&B options for families too. Aircon comfort, meals and cold drinks for tired legs 🙂

There is a Nature Playgarden for the little ones. Practice balancing on the logs and admire the butterflies.

Boon Xin prefers the Advanced circuit.

These humps would be major attraction for little daredevils. Do be careful as the humps can be challenging for first timers.

Momentum and Balance is key

Ok, Nparks call them Pump track, but it would be challenging for our bikes to lift off. We are not skillful or agile yet 🙂

A father and girl moment

Bliss moment as we enjoyed our beverage and a quiet moment. She indulged in her mobile game but I was just contented to have her company.

Do visit Cheekiemonkies’ review too. Their whole family had a fun cycling day too 🙂

Sesame Street Run Singapore

Sesame Street celebrated its 50th Birthday with a series or runs in Asean cities. We ran in Singapore’s edition last Sunday.

Can you tell me how to get?
How to get to Sesame Street

The venue was at Tampines Hub.

Colourful Tees dot the stadium.

Cute characters sang Happy Birthday but Bid Bird was missing. Hello Ernie and Bert (waves!)

As the horn blasted, participants could run or walk, 2 or 5km around Tampines. Those who started in later waves could only walk as walkers packed the paths.

I had voted for 5km run, but overruled by the majority. So we end up completing our laps in 2 km.

There are cute alphabets along the way. Boon Xin and Dana (Life’s tiny Miracles). Good kakis make the journey shorter and more memorable 🙂

 

A little foam party to welcome finishers. Kids wanted to linger longer but were Encouraged to move on haha.

Some folks were already infront of us, but man more lingers behind.

You can watch our running videos here.

There were some activities and photo opportunities at the end point.

Another Fun family outing for us. these occasions are getting rare as teenagers have their own social life.

We collected our medals and headed for breakfast 🙂

We had an enjoyable morning but we understand why many families had expressed their disappointments on Sesame Street Run Singapore Fanpage.

Pity the volunteers and runners, and we hope the organisers can do a better job next round.
