We would like to sound you out on our inaugural ‘PCN Appreciation Day’ with the support of Lovecycling Singapore, to be held on 30 August 2014 (Saturday) along the Northern Explorer Loop!

What is PCN Appreciation Day?
PCN Appreciation Day is an event where PCN users like you can enjoy the PCN you ride on and at the same time learn about the work that goes behind keeping our park connectors clean and safe.

In other words, get hands-on and care for the park connectors with us! We will be cycling along Mandai Park Connector and carrying out basic maintenance such as scrubbing of tracks, pruning overgrowth, etc.
