~ Cycling at Pasir Ris Park ~

It's a Sunny Christmas Morning! As planned, Hubby drove us down to Pasir Ris Park for some morning exercise. Parking is free, so we only need to pay for the rentals of the bicycles. Apart from Cycling, the park also offers other activities and facilities like inline skating, pony riding, children's playground and BBQ pits.

You can go to the following website to download the map : http://www.nparks.gov.sg/cms/docs/parks/PRP_Brochure.pdf

Since Gladys is still young, she will be riding with Hubby while Denver & I will ride on ourselves. It has been many years since I last cycled... Wooo.. my cycling skills really getting rusty and needed some warm up!

Hubby gave Denver some basic tips on how to ride the bicycle and how to brake correctly. Hehehe.. He definitely needs more practice. Denver started off really slow and had difficulty cycling up the slope. (He nearly roll back when he wasn't able to go up the steep slope!) Hubby & I stopped many times in between the rides to make sure he catches up with us and we have to keep reminding Denver to keep his feet on the pedals cos he always tends to lift them in mid air while braking or moving down a slope.

You can also enjoy the scenary while cycling around the park. :)

At the end of the 1 half hour ride, Denver starts to get the hang of it and managed to increase his speed with no injuries and falls. :) I can definitely feel the tension on my thighs after going through such a slow ride. :p Still, it was fun and a good workout!
