My Bicycle Commuting - A route into Toa Payoh from Thomson Road

It is usually quite boring to show a cycling clip, but this one has a lady on a fixie or single gear, and my guess is she was commuting.

My Bicycle Commuting - Is this a norm of taxi drivers?

On the next morning after I watched a video of an accident involving a taxi that was making a right turn, I encountered two taxi drivers who expect me to slow down or stop as they force their way out to make a turn.

My Bicycle Commuting - A week after NParks enforcement act

Last Friday I saw NParks enforcing the "No Cycling" rule besides Toa Payoh Garden but there are still many who ride across this bridge. Obviously such enforcement is ineffective, waste of resources, and targeting at the wrong people.

I understand that there are complaints and maybe even incidents/collisions between bicycle and pedestrians. However, there are also many bicycles passed by pedestrians without any issues. Probably there are less than 1% incidents/collisions verses more than 99% safe passing. And for the fault of those minority cases, probably by reckless bicycle users, the other 99% suffer.

How about NParks follow LTA's style? I notice in many places, when it is deemed dangerous to cross a road, railings and obstacles were put in place to forbid pedestrians from crossings. However, I hope LTA does what NParks is doing, to conduct more enforcements to catch reckless drivers, while NParks redesign the bridge and ramp to send out matching signal. Don't build something so inviting, conducive and safe for cycling but legally disallow it. I wish they allow it legally since even speed limits is based on the 85 percentile rule, and I am sure much more than 85% bicycle users find it safe to ride across here.

My Bicycle Commuting - Someone with red blinker in front

I saw this guy with red blinkers placed at front and back of his bicycle along Holland Road. I tried to tell him he should not have a red blinker at the front, but couldn't manage to get the message across.. :( (20140121)

My Bicycle Commuting - Imagine some of these car drivers ride a bicycle instead

Slow traffic along Tanglin Road is common in the peak hours. It always feel good to ride pass cars in jams :)
