a group of 60-84 is on a cycling trip around Singapore (140km). This is a great demonstration that cycling produce fit people.

I read with sadness that a cyclist had vent his anger on a private bus recently. The bus driver claimed to have done nothing wrong by over taking the cyclist and got a broken glass door because the cyclist use his "kungfu" fist to punch the door.

The above photos are taken at Bukit Batok MRT and Bukit Gombak MRT stations and the bicycle docking points are clearly inadequate as bicycle are seen parking without a proper secure point for them. In today's transportation system, bicycle had becomes more and more important in many people's lives to get around the estate cheaply.
With crude oil prices skyrocketing to near $140 today, I can certainly bet more people will move towards park "bicycle" and ride MRT instead of taking bus or driving privately owned vehicles.

The foldable bicycle must be packed in a bag not larger than 81cm by 58cm by 30cm. Similarly, folded bicycles are allowed on SMRT buses. However, our Service Leaders can use their discretion to stop any passengers carrying bulky items from boarding the bus if they cause discomfort and inconvenience to our passengers...
Referring to the SMRT luggage size limit of 81×58x30cm, I conduct a graphical study to check how well are the popular folding bikes fitting this MRT-size-limits.

I enjoy taking the MRT but hate waiting for buses. However, many places I need to go is just too far away from the MRT stations and require a connection bus service. If I have my bicycle with me I can easily cycle there without waiting. I start to explore the “MRT+Folding Bike” method a few years back and since then helped others to do the same.
