DON'T TARGET US MOUNTAIN BIKERS, GO CATCH THOSE EBIKES INSTEAD

A reader is against the requirement for mountain bikes to have handlebars shorter than 700mm. He thinks having a longer handlebar will provide more stability when cycling and would rather the LTA catch those errant ebikers instead. "Shouldnt LTA be educating pedestrian as well? Most pedestrian are hogging up the entire pavement, walking in all direction, and causing misunderstanding between cyclists and pedestrian. Not all cyclist are dangerous, most of the mountain bikers that ride the local trails respect the pedestrian and care for the safety. Do not let one reckless cyclist give you the idea that the whole cycling community is dangerous!"

CYCLING GROUP TAVELED 1,000KM TO RAISE FUND FOR KIDNEY PATIENTS

Kudos to the local cycling group who traveled 1,000km from Belum in Perak all the way to Singapore to raise funds for the Kidney Dialysis Foundation (KDF). This epic ride for charity involved 67 cyclists from EpicCyclist.

In their efforts to raise funds for KDF's patients, they had to cycle 10 hours a day, and all of them returned home safely to Singapore. The group hoped to achieve the target of $350,000for the KDF patients by June. The cycling event itself, which took place on Friday and ended on Monday, managed to raise $320,000.

SUGGESTIONS TO MAKE CYCLING MORE VIABLE IN SINGAPORE

AMK Phase 1 and Car Free Sundays are excellent piecemeal initiatives to promote a Car-Lite Singapore but have 1 common shortcoming to overcome: Convince & Convert drivers into cyclists.

To achieve a Car-Lite Singapore, the govt agencies will need to have a successful formula in converting people from driver to cyclist/public transport commuter.

A Car-Lite Singapore goal would be to keep reducing the % of trips made by car, while simultaneously increasing the % of trips made by bicycle / public transport.

WHAT PROTECTION CAN ROAD USERS GET AGAINST SELFISH CYCLISTS?

As a road user, I find cyclists like this very selfish.

Most cyclists and e-bikers have this sense of entitlement on the right to user the road. Also, they think that is the job of the drivers and motorists to pay them extra attention as they weave in and out of lane or cycle in the center lane or in huge groups.

They want people to give way to them. Yet they ride in groups like this, Rarely do they follow the traffic rules. They choose which ever light is convenient for them.
