you can cycle from the waterway to lor halus and exit into pasir ris following the foot path, you'll reach the pcn after downtown east. the following the pcn you'll reach changi V and cut thru changi beach park. on which you get on the coastal pcn and end up at ecp.


If ya legs ain't stopping, y'all gonna get there.

You may want to start cycling around dawn, when mtorised traffic is minimal along almost every route, to built confidence. Especially on Sundays/Public Holidays mornings.

http://goo.gl/maps/zcy6Y - This is roughly one of the routes I take to cycle from Sengkang to East Coast Park.

Actually, if you look above Kembangan MRT, just above that wiggly route below the PIE, there is actually a PCN above the PIE that Google can't detect for me. The entrance is just before block 620 that you can see here:  http://goo.gl/maps/PZ82K

Total distance is about 15km and depending on your speed, it can take at least an hour to reach ECP.

Happy exploring!

Just take it easy and you will be fine don't try to go as fast as you can. Also try to go very early morning  or late afternoon evening - the heat during the day is pretty strength sapping at the moment, . If you make it as far as the ECP you can cycle back via the Underpass at Area G and follow the Bedok canal up to the reservoir then the Park Connectors through Tampines to Pasir Ris and back to punggol - about 50 Km - allow about 5 to 6 hours at a steady pace with breaks.

I use that quite a lot with the kids - its quite narrow and twisty and good fun. It brings you out at a bridge over the PIE to the path right next to Windy Heights Condo. Alot more direct and less hassel than Bedok / Chai chee back roads.
Only issues are the massive construction site at block 620 for the MRT and the fact that even though it is a dedicated cycle path with an adjacent footpath it is usually crowded with joggers
