VELODROME OR NOT

14 Sep

With the tearing down of the 37-year-old iconic National Stadium in Kallang to make way for the new Sports Hub, many of our local sports enthusiasts, novices and professionals alike, are wondering what is line when the project is fully completed.

In four years’ time, the Sports Hub will include a new stadium with a 55,000-capacity and a retractable roof, a 6,000-capacity indoor aquatics arena, a multi-purpose indoor arena that can seat 3,000, a sports institute and 41,000 square metres of business, commercial and retail space.

Recently, the Singapore sports scene has been enjoying the limelight after the successful inaugural Youth Olympics and also at many other international competitions, crediting to the efforts put in by Mr Teo Ser Luck, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports.

What Singapore is trying to do now is promote a healthy and sporting lifestyle amongst her population, and also at the same time explore multiple disciplines which we can possibly excel at international levels.

We have seen success in table tennis, badminton, swimming, sailing and many others. However, cycling as a sport has yet to received sufficient support from the Singapore Sports Council.

Asians have seen success in many track events owing to the excellent, quality training programmes. The Malaysians and, needless to say, Japaneses have been enjoying track success for quite a while. The asian body is ideal for cycling, lean and mean.

Plans to send a Winter Olympic team, build a white-water rafting course, then why not build a velodrome too? I’m sure Singapore can send a decent team to a UCI Track Championship or the Olympics in less than 4 years if there’s a velodrome for us to train in.

Henceforth, I strongly urge the SSC to put more attention into developing the cycling scene in Singapore.

Velodrome or not, you decide!

Singapore Laws on Cycling

It is key to understand what is expected of you on the roads so as to ensure both your safety as well as the other road users.

NICK’S DREAM

29 May

He is training the first black team to win the Tour de France – the third largest sporting event in the world, but with no African presence all these years because equipment and training are too costly. He fell in love with professional cycling as a young boy…

RATSKL/CrankArmSteady/PEONFX/Fixpatrix/Nookmag/The Killer Gerbil unofficial ride

7 Mar

More than a dozen of riders from RATSKL were here in Singapore this weekend. We had a good crazy ride with almost 30 of us mashing down Orchard Road on a busy Saturday night traffic. Rode and hung out at some of our usual haunts together along with the crew from CrankArmSteadyPEONFXNookmag & The Killer Gerbil. It is definitely a memorable one.

Hopefully, we will be able to join RATSKL in KL for some ride in the near future.

Added RATSKL, Nookmag & The Killer Gerbil into our blog links too. With few of the camera wielding riders, I think we will see some photos up soon, so stay tune.

Peace out homies!
