Pedalling Peddle Power…

I missed slotting this post in with those of the Marina Bay Sands, but since I am still not so far away I will add it now. There are bikes for hire in various places around the city, these one sport bright colours which caught my eye. I think it’s an excellent idea for hotels to have bikes for hire: who needs the gym when you can combine exercise with sightseeing ? Excellent for combatting deep-vein thrombosis and jetlag after long international flights, these particular ones have the added bonus of being on the edge of the Gardens by the Bay, which is so large that a bicycle really does come in handy. Added to that the Singapore Flyer is just a short distance away, as is the Marina Bay, with features like the Merlion to see.

  1. Does a bike work for you?

    • lulu,
      Sadly, not unless I can find some way to eliminate having to push down on a peddle with my left foot. An e-bike may be an answer but it still requires some peddle pushing, which if you can only use one foot is a bit of a problem. Dystrophy makes my foot highly sensitive to pressure, and painful in the extreme. That’s why my cross-trainer sits unused.

      I am trying to get an electric wheelchair so that I can go outside without assistance more often, not long distances, but to the local shops a few streets away. It would be nice to not have to rely on Himself to take me all the time.

      • I am so sorry that your foot continues to be disabling.

  2. lulu,
    The situation with my foot is fairly permanent at this stage sadly… I’m hoping that maybe some development in medical science may help one day in the future. Let’s hope that this happens sooner than later.
