Yes, I have been cycling to University for the last 2 weeks. You might have seen the last post I made when I bought a cycle here in Singapore. Someone stole that cycle soon after I bought that. I was not using that cycle much anyways and it was not my first experience in loosing a cylce. Anyhow, I bought a new one a couple of weeks back and the new cycle costs three times of that of the first one.

From Once upon a time in Singapore

Shimano gear system, shock absorbers and the wide handle accounts to the extra money. I also changed the seat to a ladies seat to have a good cushy seat. Seat in boys’ cycles here are so hard and small. Why do they think that only ladies’ bums need to be cared.

Now, that I shifted my apartment, cycling is the best way to reach University. It takes me around 15-20 minutes to reach my lab in the cycle.  Earlier it used to take a minimum of 20 minutes to reach the lab in bus (with all the walking and waiting for the bus). Also, I know the streets around the University better now. Cycling always make you explore the shortcuts.

P.S: The funniest thing about the cycle is its name – “Uranus Conqueror”

    Uh what!!! Thats your cycle!! First of all, it is a shade of pink. Second of all, it has the trademark ‘barbie carrier’. Third, you mention the seats being changed. Why didnt you go get yourself a ladies bike straightaway?? :P :P

    1. The shade is red not pink!! :P.
    2. It is Singaporean i guess, most cycles here have that carrier. See, it is convenient and since it is not considered girlie here, why shouldn’t I have one.
    3. The comfort provided by the seat is way more than the embarrassment of having such a seat in the cycle. :P
