This is an open discussion thread for the news [LOCAL NEWS] Jurong Lake District is now the eighth cycling town

Jurong Lake District has joined the ranks of Punggol, Tampines, Pasir Ris and Yishun, as it turns itself into the eighth cycling town. With the launch of a 15-kilometre cycling network on Saturday (1 July), commuters and residents will find travelling easier in Jurong East, Chinese Garden and Lakeside.

I explored a substantial portion of the Jurong cyling network over the weekend.

Whilst it's certainly an improvement over the previous infrastructure (pavements), I would hesitate to really call it a full-fledged cycling network. It's basically some widened pathways using bicycle-friendly surfacing, stitched together wherever possible.

But it's a step in the right direction, and I hope they don't give themselves a pat on the back and stop here as though the job is done :)
