As the storm clouds languidly gathered overhead, any lingering thoughts of an afternoon training ride seemed slim. But alas it was just a false alarm as those threatening overcasts parted to reveal a glorious deep blue of a sky. With the sun still in hiding, there was not a better time to be outdoors while enjoying the luxury that nature provided.

What better way to ride then to be accompanied by a picturesque backdrop of the turquoise sea, helping to distract the torture of pushing the mucles to brink of their threshold. One can be mistaken that he was in Kona, the mecca for the ultimate event of the Ironman series, as those same crosswind battered the exhausted body of the said cyclist.

But a sudden wift of the bbq smoke, brought everything back into reality, as the weekend park-goers started to congregate again. While Pasir Ris Park is not Kona, I think it’s close enough to daydream.
