NTU Bike Rally 2009

The NTU Bike Rally is the best long distance public ride in Singapore and I have ridden with them since 2003.

This year the bike rally falls on Sunday, 15th March 2009 and for the second year, there are two start points - East Coast Park (128km) and Nanyang Technological University (85km).

The 128km route passes by Labrador Park, NTU, Kranji Reservoir, Seletar Reservoir, Pasir Ris Park and Changi Beach before ending back at East Coast Park.

Hi.
We were a victime thrice. In separate ocassions at Blk 129, Pasir Ris 11, our bikes properly secured with big chains and padlocks and just so easily were cut and gone.

I feel, police has to deal with this case seriously by searching individuals with suspicious big bag that can hide bolt cutter and roaming aimlessly. This happens at time where most people are quiet and resting.

One time I notice a man holding a big black bag looking left and right and who pretended to be just a passer by when he saw me. I didnt immediately suspected until I told my husband about his suspisious look. He was too rugged to be holding a big bag.

My neighbor said, my case is not extra ordinary for he lost his bike parked alongside the wall of his unit chained at a pipe.

Belen, do u meant to comment on the previous post Multi Level Automated Bicycle Parking?

I have been cycling to commute for many years, and surely I have lost a number of bicycles, locked at MRT bicycle stand, lamppost, railings, water pipes outside my flat, etc. However, I see it as I am locking a piece of "junk" at a public place (except at bicycle stand) for the free and convenience of it. Thus, I accept the risk that whatever I locked could be taken (not stolen) away.

Yet, the bicycle I am using most frequently since 1996 hasn't been stolen suggests that it is really a trick of balancing the security and the worthiness of the bicycle. It seems the latter is much more effective.
