In 2007, I went night-cycling. A bunch of us cycled from East Coast Park to Raffles Place and then back again. It took about 8 hours altogether because we made several stops to eat (at Lau Pa Sat!), but I remember it as being really tiring albeit uber fun. Let’s face it- cycling isn’t the kindest sport to your nether regions. Being on a bicycle for that long can be very… straining, if you know what I mean.
Well, I was sorely put in my place when I met Axel and Mariana, a beautiful couple from Argentina who are on the adventure (or at least, the first big adventure) of their lives. When I met them at Merida, they were just slightly more than halfway through their 2-year journey cycling from Alaska back to Argentina. Yup, you read that right. These crazy people (and I mean that in the most loving way possible) are literally cycling through the Americas.
