Dear all seasoned cyclists, please kindly help me identify a good cycling route from my home to camp ^^
I'd be travelling very early in the morning and wish to note the distance and how safe the route is.

Thank you!!

shortest route which I can think of is
tampines rd->cut thru serangoon and amk -> upp thomson->mandai->kranji

however you need to consider traffic flow and other on-the-ground conditions(eg. constructions going on..), others can comment more, sorry i westerner...but be aware of the hills at thomson and mandai.

Hi there,

Perhaps you would like to share with us how many years of road cycling experience you have? Reason is that it can be quite dangerous cycling, let alone in the wee hours of the morning and by yourself.  The more we know, the more willing the old birds would be able to advise. :)

Alternative route that has less traffic (until Mandai Road anyway).

Rasir Ris Dr 3 (westward) -> Pasir Ris Dr 12* -> Pasir Ris Ind Dr 1 -> Pasir Ris Farmway 2 -> Pasir Ris Farmway 3 -> cross Lor Halus -> un-named road northwest to Lor Halus Wetland Park -> cross red bridge (you are in Sengkang now) -> from bridge turn left (southwards) along PCN till you reach makan place (Popeye's) -> Tebing Lane (Chinese Temple) -> westward along Punggol Field (Punggol Central OK too) -> Punggol Walk (northwards). New road here not shown in map -> cross nice bridge -> left (west) at traffic light -> Punggol Way -> Seletar North Link (you will pass by Marina Country Club on your right) -> cross the dam and continue along Seletar North Link (this is a long stretch) -> turn right (west) to reach Lower Seletar Reservoir dam -> cross it to hit Yishun Ave 1 (you are officially in Yishun now) -> Yishun Ave 1 southwards will connect you to Mandai Rd. Rest of the way you should know.

*At the corner between Pasir Ris Dr 3 and Pasir Ris Dr 12 (near entrance to Pasir Ris Farmway 1) there's a shortcut along the canal that brings you to Pasir Ris Farmway 3.

Oohh... the link is open finally open after so many years ! That's good news !

Only problem for now is that the roads in the Seletar Link area are pretty dusty and some parts need to carry the bike.  But hey ... if the link is open, and IF the road condition is good, its actually a shorter route!!

There's a physical barrier (chain) across the Punggol River dam where you need to carry your bike over. It's to prevent 4 wheelers from using the road. 2 wheelers, including motorbikes, has been using this route regularly now.

Only problem is this stretch has quite a bit of debris like small pebbles. I've ridden this stretch quite a few times for the past 2 months.

Another thing is right behind the Marina Country Club, next to the road, is the beginning of a PCN that takes you all the way to Punggol Jetty. Southwards is a partially completed PCN that takes you all the way to Sengkang Riverside Park, ending at the Malay Kampong at Lor Buangkok. This PCN follows the Punggol River.
