History:

 

Some time ago, two leisure cyclists decided to form a team with the purpose to unite all cycling enthusiasts in the Eastern part of Singapore. Starting with only themselves, the team of two participated in joint rides with other teams such as SengKang Mtbs, West riders, West End Riders, L&T Riders, Friday West Night Rides and more. 

 

As time goes by, the team began to be known to many riders staying in the East, and they started to participate in the team’s routine rides every weekend. Hence the team was given its name, Team Eastern.

 

Since the start of January 2007, Team Eastern has been actively participating in weekly round island and half island rides.

 

Apart from that, Team Eastern has also organized overseas rides to Malaysia namely Penggerang, Sungei Renggit, Kota Tinggi and Desaru:

 

Recent Developments:

 

Team Eastern has expanded through the years and currently has about 20 members.  Regular rides are conducted every week; mostly half island or round island rides on Fridays for training, and occasional leisure rides on Saturdays or Sundays. 

 

The recent Cotes Grand Prix can find some of Team Eastern members participating in the races.  Unfortunately, an accident happened in one of the races, resulting in one bike damage and rider injury. However the others did not leave him behind, and this motivated him to carry on and complete the race. They have upheld the values of Team Eastern: “No one gets left behind”, and “Never Say Die”. This reflected the team spirit and integrity of Team Eastern to be proud of.

 

 

 

Participation in the races has been a pleasant experience for them, and here, I feel proud of them as part of Team Eastern. I am confident that they will continue to strive for better results in future.

Our Vision:

 

It is our pleasure to inspire more people around the East to take up cycling as a hobby, and become part of Team Eastern.

 

We have a vision that Team Eastern will gather enough members to organize a big overseas cycling tour to Malaysia, Thailand, or even Tibet. This dream can only be realized with the support and unity of each and every member who make up Team Eastern and give her the strength to do so.

 

So, guys and girls please give us your support.
