OCBC Bank and Spectrum Worldwide, title sponsor and organiser of Singapore’s largest mass cycling event, today launched the OCBC Cycle Singapore Safe Cycling Campaign, to promote cycling in a safe environment.
 
With a growing number of cyclists seen on the roads due to a heightened interest in cycling as a sport and a mode of commute, the OCBC Cycle Singapore Safe Cycling Campaign aims to raise the awareness of the need for both cyclists and motorists to respect each other and share the roads. Safe cycling on public roads can be achieved as long as both parties play their part in observing traffic rules and keeping a safe distance from each other. The key message of the campaign is therefore - ‘1.5M Matters. Share the Road’. Observing this safe distance of 1.5 metres from each other and obeying traffic rules will enable both parties to enjoy a safe journey on our roads.

They were up against top teams from China, Uzbekistan, Japan and Kazakhstan but the Singapore side more than held their own with a respectable timing in the women’s kayak four 500m race at the 16th Asian Games in Guangzhou yesterday (Thur, 25 Nov).

Irene Chua, Geraldine Lee, Annabelle Ng and Andrea Chen came in fifth with a time of 1:40.483 - an impressive performance as they were expected to struggle against their opponents at the International Rowing Centre.

China took the Gold medal with a time of 1:34.440 while Uzbekistan clinched the Silver medal with a time of 1:37.776. In the battle for the Bronze medal, Japan (1:39.187) just edged out Kazakhstan (1:39.703) and Singapore.

Despite our girls not finishing in the top three, Coach Balazs Babella was a proud man after the race. Said the Hungarian who was visibly pleased with his charges’ performance, “Everyone looked down on Singapore because we never had a fantastic record in this sport. But today, we showed that we could compete well. We will eventually win medals in future meets.”
