OCBC Cycle 2020 Virtual edition

OCBC Cycle 2020 is pedaling from now till 15th Nov.

YouTube Video : Cycling FUN!

The Sportive (42km) , Straits Times (23km) and Mighty Savers (kids) categories are still the same. There is not fixed routes this year. You should have enough time to clock above your target mileage.

The biggest difference for OCBC Cycle 2020 is no Race queens. Sorry, I meant 2020 Edition is Virtual!

The #DaddyMatters Uncles are still there, we still clocked our warmups and end our sessions with pratas (read previous OCBC editions here). We did skip the dancing this year.

Like all sports events, Covid19 has changed most events to Virtual.

Flagoff at Bishan Park

So we had two groups flagged off at Bishan Park last Sunday. We had a VIP sponsor our breakfast too, thank you J!

Once a year, we gather for the Dads bonding. I really love this group of folks, we are all busy but we make time for each other.

Me and Randy cycled from Sengkang to meetup with the rest at Bishan Park. This fellow went on to clock his own milestone of 100km!

The 23km Journey

Then we followed Kallang River all the way to Sportshub and Marina Barrage. Most of us have signed up for 23 km ST category.

Nick loves this long3 kao1 (manicured drain).

There are so many cyclists on PCN on Sunday! We had to queue up to cross junction, maintaining social distance.

Below fun shot by David got the feel. LOVE!
Glad to have Dana joined us too.

The destination is important, but we make the Journey Fun and memorable.

Remember this famous bridge? When can we roll down ECP again!

Youturn at Helix Bridge, heading back to Kallang\Bishan. Kakis photo time.

F1 pit stop no tourists, only cyclists.

Prata tradition

Prata to refill our energy. We got Lawrence’s nephew (Ryan) to join us for the first time. Fortunately, he was not turn off by Uncles’ weird antics.

We are friendly folks, most of the time.

Remember to upload your mileage and photos after completing your journey. You will get a certificate and medal (later).

Thank you OCBC Cycle for the fun invite, we enjoy the opportunities for Dads and families to hang out together.

With Covid19 and CB, we also noticed more folks turning to jogging and cycling. Was glad my new foldie could join me this round 🙂

My warmup cycling sessions.

Perfect weather, with a constant breeze.
The Best kakis in Singapore.
Prata and catchup.

You really cannot ask for a better cycling setting than OCBC Cycle 🙂

Although I signed up for 23km, I ended up with 42km. Checkout Relive video below.

We hope 2021 OCBC Cycling will be a “real”event (not Virtual), with cyclists going down Nicoll Highway and maybe more venues 🙂

Do pop by our previous OCBC Cycling episodes here.
You may follow our family’s cycling events here (local and overseas)

Cheers to more cycling and exploration!

OCBC Cycling Traditions – 2017

A few Dads will be joining OCBC Cycle 2018 next week.
Let me share a few OCBC Cycling Traditions from the Dads :p

1.Most of us will be attempting 23km again (Two Dads will upgrade to 42km 加油!)

..but we will catchup again at the end point.

2.Wacky Dads performance, never mind about Dad Bods

Age is just a number, #DaddyMatters GO GO GO! (Facebook link)

2017 Coincidance

2016 (Boomerang link)

We can be quite creative and fun loving. We have Hashtag #OcbcUncle and we have a private chat #KahChiaMen (maybe use for OCBC Cycle 2018 )

We were toying with Ah-Pek singlets and even Good Morning towels too!

3.OCBC Race queens 🙂

We must take photos with them right. F1 got Singapore Girls, and OCBC Cycle got Race queens. Maybe they will be trying to avoid the bunch of Uncles this round haha.

We can count on David to lead the way :p

We promise the bananas will be placed in less strategic zones.

4.The only complain we have year after year is the JERSEY!

Iron man (2017) and Captain America (2016).  I suspect the designers are Marvel Avenger Fans! (and Infinity War is premiering 2018).

Unlike running tshirts, there is no reuse value for the bike jerseys, a bit too outlandish haha.

We love everything else about OCBC Cycle.

5.This is the second year I will be cycling with my boy. Hope to make it a tradition in 2019 too.

6.I need to plank or sleep on Benjamin Sheares Bridge.

For REAL, how often can we cycle or snooze on ECP!

What are your OCBC Cycle memories? Do share them with us too, or perhaps you wish to dedicate some cool dance moves for us? Do take note we are not young and tender like those Kpop hunks liao.

If we can motivate one more Dad, encourage one more parent to lead an active lifestyle, that would be an accomplishment for us.

=== === === === ===

I am sharing part 2 (belated) post for OCBC Cycle 2017 below. Part 1 was cycling with No3 and No4 under the Kids and Families category (Blog post).

11 of us participated in the 23Km Sportive category.

Day breaks, final wefie and off we go.

OCBC Cycle always let us enjoy Singapore’s icons from another angle, the ROADS!

Tunnels, Bridges, Expressways YEAH!

Return trip to Benjamin Sheares Bridge.

OCBC Cycle Route will have a few photo points, for cyclists to enjoy some selfies. It is a good opportunity to catch our breaths too :p 

If you are not a regular cyclist, Benjamin Sheares Bridge will make you SWEAT and cramp.

Soak in the scenic panoramic view too. Marina Barrage, Gardens by the Bay, Flyer, Marina Bay and MBS.

Both sides of the bridge, one smiling and the other grimacing 🙂
Just wheel down at top speed and enjoy the breeze.
Water point and bike servicing is at the base of Benjamin Sheares Bridge (direction of Changi Airport). Recharge, repair and carry on.

Whole ECP is ours!

Does not matter your bike type, brand or wheel size. No bike can use Mobike haha 🙂

Golden Mile, going to be demolished soon…

Everyone will end at National Stadium. We feel like winners already.

Thank you for the memories OCBC Cycle!

We Dads hope to cycle more and add more memories to OCBC Cycling Traditions. We are still looking forward to nicer Jerseys :p

d)We heard about Nike Breaking 2 feat, those elite Marathoners must clock a speed of 21 kmh to run under 2 hours! I would be able to clock 50 or 60 kmh during my youth “daredevil mode”, but I mostly clock 15 to 20 kmh on PCN now.

Eliud Kipchoge clocked 2 HR 25 Sec for his Marathon, MAN HE IS SUPER FAST!
