Ride with me
In 2015, 1 in 8 Singaporeans was a senior aged 65 year and above. In 2030, it will be 1 in 4. We will have over 900, 000 seniors. Per Ministry of Health (www.moh.gov.sg) press release in 2015, a 3 billion-dollar action plan was announced to enable Singaporeans to age successfully. Part of this plan involves NParks enhancing the network of paths to incorporate more senior-friendly amenities such as upgraded toilets, footpaths, lightings, and exercise equipment.
When we empower the silver generation to enjoy life fully, their physical and mental well-being improve. Starting March 2017, on every first Friday of each month, we will organise a Silver YOLO Bike Adventure. Last Friday, our first team of 4 silvers conquered the Eastern Coastal Loop.
“Cycling along Marina Bay is so relaxing. I am very happy to discover so many beautiful places like Marina Barrage and the F1 Building connected on cycling paths. I have never been to such places before! Although it was drizzling, it did not lessen our cycling spirit. We felt so safe with one staff leading the front and another staff guarding the rear.” – Silver YOLOist.
We were enlightened when the silver team shared how times have moved on, and for the better.
“It was a 90-minute ride from House of Joy to Gardens by the Bay and back. A lot of preparation work was required to ensure safety of team. Protective helmets were worn and we made sure to cycle in single file on the left side of the track. We chose the Park Connector Network so that our silvers could enjoy without worrying about traffic. Next, we will bringing them to the Changi park connector.” – Herman.
If you would like to enjoy the benefits of cycling and soak in the views of ‘City in a Garden’ with great company, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and be a part of the team.
#YOLO – You Only Live Once. Regret not the things we have done. Instead, regret the things we have not done. The lovely moments we had today will always be cherished and remembered.
