Hi LCSG,
On June 2010, Francis, Tai Woon and I cycled Balestier area (pre LCSG) and passed by the Sun Yat Sen memorial hall but it was closed for renovation.

More info here:
http://wanqingyuan.org.sg/ENG/
Now that its finally re-opened, come join me to visit this elegant building, this time inside.
Along the way, we'll get to smell freshly baked Loti (bread) by bakeries thats been around for as long as the place.


Pls check out sneak preview places:
http://flic.kr/s/aHsjwQn2f9

Route highlights: we'll start at Novena, Mount Pleasant (humongous Banyan Tree), Caldecot Hill (Mediacorp, moving to Mediapolis in 2015), peaceful MacRitchie Reservoir (walk along boardwalk if you've never been), Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall, forgotten Shaw Bros Malay Studio, legendary Whampoa Dragon, Loti bakery (smell so good!), quaint old bird shop, pretty pre-war houses and yum yum eating at Whampoa Market before heading back to Novena.

Balestier area is congested and majority will be riding on quiet roads and a short PCN. A few unavoidable busy roads (Thomson Balestier) and some major junctions, some slooOooOpes along the way but we'll ride slow with stops for inexperienced road riders to smile and take in the sights.


See map of route:
http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/56482314#share

Time: 7:30am
Meet: Novena MRT Thomson road exit
Gather at open space behind bus/taxi stop.
Those driving free parking (Sunday) along Tan Tock Seng Link (top right of map below).
