My current cycling goal is... to do a cycling tour around Asia

When I am on the bike... I have a clear mind and I always push myself to the maximum limit

How did your love for bikes come about? When I was 4 years old, my older cousin brought me to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve to do my first ever trial riding. There afer, life was never the same again without wheels.

Share a cycling memory: Once I was cycling along Kranji Road and was chased by 15 dogs. Incidentally, my tires punctured and my chain dropped. I was forced to stop and I feared I would be bitten by the dogs. Without further ado, I whipped out my power bars and fed the dogs as I walked as fast as I could to the next lane.

I love to ride becauseā€¦ I get to meet people from all walks of life and seeing the abilities of what man can do with their bikes.

Thanks Sherman for sharing your story! That was some quick thinking of feeding the hungry dogs your power bars. We hope you didn't bonk from that ride!
