    Closing of my precious MTB Park & Trail :(

    Hi All,

    Just want to post this for the Good memory of this MTB Park & Trail had brought me and many others that ride there every week!

    We have only a few MTB parks in Singapore, as we are a very small island country compare to others. My beloved "Tampines Bike Park" will be offically close on 15 Sep 2014, to make way for houseing! (why choose our bike park instead of many other flat land around that area!! this question have been in my head for quite sometime). And this bike park was building and use for (UCI certified) Youth Olympics few years back. Anyway, these are few pics I took using my phone during last week short ride.

    I'm sorry to hear about this. It sucks to lose access to a beloved trail.

    I had the pleasure of riding in Singapore in the late 90's when I was enlisted in the Navy. It is the only place I've ridden where I had monkeys watching me from the side of the trail. It ranks pretty highly as far as mountain bike memories go.

    Sorry to hear this. Priorities are way out of whack in this case.

    btw - never thought I'd say it, but nice fender kit. Got a better pic?

    It's never easier - you just go faster.

    Aloha, so sorry to hear. This is why I keep thinking I have things good here (wish I had more trails to access) but I work on trying to keep things open and maintained.
