I've recently added a new gadget to the handle bar of my Scott Contessa - my iPhone 3GS! Techie as it may seem, but I am really loving the fact that I now have a GPS, Street Directory, Music Player and Hands-free phone!

Earlier in the year, I picked up the Marware Sportsuit convertible sport armband at the ITShow. The convertible's neoprene skin and durable vinyl screen-cover completely enclose and protect the iPhone while giving you full usage of all screen functionality and buttons. It is a sturdy case and so far, no painful abrasions from the armband.

My objective was to strap the iPhone on and train for my runs. However, I soon found out that an iPhone is just too heavy a device to run around in comfortably for marathon length runs. Short runs are quite perfect.

It wasn't long later that I found out that the Marware Sportsuit convertible has another nifty add on - the bike holder! For USD$9.95, the bicycle holder mounts any Marware cases that uses the Multidapt® clip system.

Kenny took home a piece for me from the states. And I was really excited to take it out for a spin, at the same time to travel the distance of the Kallang Park Connector.

Before hitting the Park Connector, I checked out this barren plot of land near the unopened Woodleigh MRT Station. I've zoomed passed this place numerous times and have seen people jogging and training. It looked like a good place to spin.

Nice open space, but it is definitely not a park. There are no benches and a good part of the track is graveled with tiny rocks; not the most ideal for sleek tires.

Towards Kallang from Toa Payoh. Cycling by our catchment canals is as good as it gets to riverside cycling!

Smooth tracks with good shade. Almost a luxury compared to what cyclist have to fight with on the roads!

Passing through Potong Pasir to The River Vista @ Kallang. Disgustingly modern looking HDB flats with river views!

The morning's exploration cycle took me around 1.5 hours with total cycling distance of 25km. I await the opening of the Bishan Park Connector stretch. Despite the need to lug the bike up and down numerous overhead bridges and flights of stairs, the connectors are safe for a lone cyclist. It beats getting killed on the road.
