Hi, wanted to share vid of my commmute to work, going from Tampines to Sports Hub. The video captures most of the turns I make, so people can get some ideas if they are working out the best route to take for their commutes.

Hi Ryancy. The trip took exactly 60 minutes, which is a normal time for me (you can see the time on my speedo). So technically my average speed was 18km/h as the length of the route, but that includes all the stops and dismounts at traffic lights, overhead bridge and underpass. I was going at 15km/h on pavements, 25km/h on park connectors and 30+km/h on roads.

It's a bit hard to make out, but you can see the progression of time on my speedometer (the smaller number is a clock).

Are you an Easty as well?

Traffic along that stretch of road along upper east coast road isn't so heavy and not many vehicles turning out of small lanes like other areas closer to city. I think it's the wide angle lens that makes it look scarier than it actually seems haha.

Hi just to clarify : you went on the main road after passing by the Guards Camp exiting Bedok PCN right? When u went down to that underpass were you linked to the East Coast Park @ Area D? Is that portion part of Siglap PCN as i would like to try your way ^^ What i usually do is cut into the lane entering the Guards camp (IIRC it's called Guards Ave) and go under an underpass where i would hit Area G i believe of ECP and continue on towards Tanjung Rhu bridge

I went by the Bayshore underpass linked to Area F. From Upper East Coast Road I turn left to Bayshore Road. You should definitely try this route out, the detour in the opposite direction if you go by guards camp underpass is fairly long.

On my way home I actually use the underpass at guards camp. In the morning's I'm more time concious, in the evenings I don't mind taking a longer route + I hate right turns on roads!

Ok finally took this route and liked it - was a bit rustic and reminded me of Tampines Road haha Thanks for sharing the route man ^^

Just curious, do you have a shower facility at work? 


I've tried riding to work once and when I arrived, I was definitely in need of a shower.
