00 - Singapore walk135 viewsI decided to walk from my hotel to East Coast Park, one of the only places with bicycle rental in Singapore. It was about 10 miles and took me nearly 3 hours.

I took the MTR (public transit) back, though.

07 - Rental bike in Singapore175 viewsThere were only mountain bikes for rent, but it served its purpose. It cost me 7 SGD (about $5) to rent it for 2 hours. I tried going out in the street, but after almost getting hit by a police car I decided to stick with the park (nearly as dangerous with clueless pedestrians, roller bladers, and novice cyclists). I rode up and down the park a couple of times, one time passing a charity ride (Bike'n'Blade).
