Korea 4 river, possible?
Shouldn't be a problem if you stick to the path. Very nice! It's something I have heard of and want to do in the future!

Hi all, Iam new to cycling... Pardon me for asking a noob question... I realise my speed is v slow... Other ppl (on road bikes) paddle once already overtaken me by a few ten's of metres... My average speed is only around 9.5kph... I am a buibui riding a 20" Aleoca Foldable bike... So is it the bike issue or just my poor fitness level? And to ride on average 2 hours per trip, my bum feels sore... Especially the tailbone..... So changing to answer bike or bigger saddle helps?

Thanks!

Mechanical better than Di2.

Get an Ultegra Mechanical. Differences to D.A are minimal. Only slightly heavier. (Google it).

But a big difference in price.

Reason for not choosing Di2 is simply you don;'t want to get caught out just before a ride, forgetting to charge your battery!

Mechnical is good enough for 99% of cyclists, even pro cyclists!

Hello all, I am looking for leisure to semi-serious cycling kakis around Woodlands area during the weekends when I'm free.

I owned a mountain bike and road bike however I have not cycled for the past 5 years. Used to average around 25km/h on my road bike. Now I think can only do 10km/h

I should still be able to cycle up to 40km routes. Can slowly train up again. Also don't mind doing some easy trail biking with my hard tail. Drop me a PM if I can join up your group or something!

Hi just wanna ask... I'm currently 130kg, and wanna take up cycling to lose weight. Currently looking at some 2nd hand aleoca and valos folders as its cheap and convenient. But a short google shows that such bikes are not fatty-friendly, being able to support max 100-110kg.

So anyone has any experiences of overloading such bikes? Much help appreciated

HI guys, can I share something? Thought this is interesting for those who like eating as much as they do cycling.

OCBC Cycle is having a Cafe Bike Crawl on 12 August and 16 September, where you get to check out little-known cafes in Singapore and eat to your heart's content. You ride from cafe to cafe to burn off the calories.
