Old Upper Thomson Road was a F1 Grand Prix Circuit in the 60s. As a result, there are some slightly banked corners to make for a great ride. Very little cars and it winds through a forest so it is very quiet. Watch out for monkeys

Customer Service

Start at the junction of Upper Thomson Road and Yio Chu Kang Road and make your way through the former Grand Prix circuit until you reach a junction with Upper Thomson Road up north.

Try the track to Upper Peirce Reservoir at a gate at mid point which has 3 steep hills for good downhill fun. More monkeys here.

Tarmac road all the way. Not very long but tends to be free from traffic. Used to have dogs roaming about there at night but recently didn't see any. I go there at maybe 8 - 10pm. Can be frightening because I sometimes remember having to sprint to escape a pack of dogs at certain points few years back. The street is well lit so should be able to see any holes or obstacle in your path.

Customer Service

Start off at any place you want. At the T-junction of where Ang Mo Kio intersects Thomson Rd. Or at the end nearing Sembawang Rd. Ride the loop, till you feel tired, then stop at the coffee shop for some Prata and Kopi. I can understand why roadies like it so much, it's so near to resonably priced food and you can pose at these places with your rig and colourful tights.
