Is the Military Runway off limits for us ? Not This time !
Yup, its true, we had the “AIR FORCE” runway to our self on this particular day , its called the “National Runway Cycle/Skating 2012. Hey sorry if you came here looking for a way to sneak into the Airbase ! TOUGH LUCK DUDE ! you gonna get caught by the Military police or even better the National Security if you were searching for that crap.
This event has been held 16th time and it was started in 1996, and guess what ? this was my first time joining it and I heard its gonna be the last. A little more about this event.
Originally named ‘National Runway Cycling’, the first edition took place in 1996 at Paya Lebar Air Base and has since been held at this signature venue. With increasing interest and support from the inline-skating community, the event was renamed National Runway Cycling & Skating in 2008.
Each year, the event attracts a large crowd of some 6,000 to 8,000 participants. Besides cycling and skating on the runway, participants are also treated to a host of fringe activities, performances and games for the enjoyment of families.
All I can say is that its lots of fun, imagine getting to cycle on the runway of a Military base, get this its DAMM AWESOME !! no kidding and I had a blast , hopefully they will have it next year again. *Cross fingers* enjoy the pictures of the day. See if you can spot me in the picture as well as the F16 fighter jet.
This guy deserves a clap, he finished 45km on a UNICYCLE !!
I was talking to him at km25, he was so nice to explain to me the mechanics of a unicycle. and yet he kept on a steady pace. RESPECT !
