Cycling – Past and Present

The last time I cycled, was more than 15 years ago, with Andrew and Yew Hoong, and my most distinct memories were being chased by dogs along Woodlands road. We used to start our night cycling at around 11pm, and can go on through till 5am in the morning, ending at Orchard Road’s Centre Point. All that came to an end after Andrew went overseas to the US, and myself to Perth, WA for studies. Before I left, I passed Stephen my Farrari Road bike, and three years later, when I came back, had discovered that he had sold off my bike. πŸ™‚

When I came back, I was also caught up with starting off a new career, church, girlfriend, wife, children, family, etc… πŸ™‚ Never really had time for cycling until recently!

A few months ago, the kids had suggested that I get a bike to cycle with them. They each have a nice bike, and we normally cycle at Punggol Park, just around the corner from our place. It would be good, we all thought if I could also join them cycling. I took a few months to think about it, but really got down to thinking about it a few weeks ago.

Needless to say, I finally decided to buy a bike. πŸ™‚ One of the considerations for me, was to have a folded bike, which will enable me to stow it away when un-used. Another condition, was to have a full sized bike.

I trawled the net, and finally found the bike I liked. A Montague Fit!
Montague Fit It is a full size 700c road bike. Beautiful!

When folded, it looks like this…

I’ve had this bike since the 20th of September, and have since covered more than 204 km! πŸ˜€

As it turns out, I’ve forgotten how much fun it is cycling, and the interesting part, is that its become something of an exercise for me, and it is affording me the chance to really get into the act of living and eating healthier. I couldn’t be more happy!

As it goes, I am now thinking of getting a nice little Bromptom for the times when I do need to cycle for commuting.. πŸ˜€
