Car Free Sunday Singapore is cool!

We want to join the next Car Free Sunday Singapore Singapore event!
That very much sums up the Fun that we had on Sunday morning πŸ™‚

After all, how often do we get to cycle under F1 route, floating platform, Anderson bridge, or even Singapore’s Business District.

Setting off at 6am was a struggle (getting the kids off their beds!), we drove towards Gardens By The Bay before cycling leisurely towards Padang area.

Blue sky, windy condition, we cycle past the usual tourist spots (take note no cycling in Gardens by the Bay)

Before we reach the venue, you can already feel a sense of anticipation. Every jogger and cyclist around the area seem to be heading in the same direction, everyone wish to experience a car free weekend.

We even caught a sneak peep of the Sun rising from behind the Flyer (and MBS).

Car Free CBD and Padang yeah! I am sure all the cyclists and joggers would agree too!
No need to stop for Red light too, Freedom!

Our convoy of six bikes took us around the central business district, down Fullerton and Robinson road, we could even stop in the middle for some selfie (safety first). Kids would try to pedal faster to catch up with biker who has poodles in his basket!

No ERP today, feels so good to see so many pedestrians and cyclists occupying the lanes. Families and friends were all smiling πŸ™‚

A special shoutout to the marshals and cheerleaders, #CarFreeSundaySg would not have been so successful without all the volunteers πŸ™‚

There were a lot of family friendly activities at the fringe. Nparks’ “Cycling clinic” was interesting for the little ones, “Slowest win” (About balancing) and they did some donuts too :p

After about two hours, we headed back home. Kids were unanimous in their response when I ask them whether they want to wake up super early to cycle again πŸ™‚

This is Singapore’s first Car Free Sunday, and we hope it will be extended indefinitely. A good avenue for families to do sports together.

Kids might only relate the cycling event to fun, but I wish to encourage all road and park users to respect one another, we can all co-exist. Sometimes, a simple give-and-take will make everyone happy.

I had to spend 30 minutes just to mount the bikes, and another 20 to dismount, but the effort is worth it. I had to squeeze 3 bikes in boot and another 3 on our bicycle rack.

I need to remind myself to take less photos, kids were annoyed that I keep disturbing their cycling haha!
Meanwhile, three cheers to the next Car Free Sunday Singapore πŸ™‚
