Night Skate Captain
The latest Saturday Night Skate began from the west, with Jurong East MRT Station picked as the designated starting point.
More than 20 skaters attended the skate, including a German skater who was having his first night skating in Singapore.
We headed towards Boon Lay Way, amidst the evening shopping crowd and entered Ulu Pandan Park Connector, which runs along Sungel Ulu Pandan canal. It was nice to cruise along the connector which was relatively quiet and peaceful. The connector ended with a steep climb up a slope out to Commonwealth Ave West. Buona vista MRT Station was right across the street.

We popped by a coffee shop for a short break to indulge in the cool drinks and snacks before continuing our journey into Commonwealth Ave, bypassing a few MRT Stations along the way.

A second break was available at Redhill MRT Station before we embarked on the strenuous climb along Henderson Park Connector at Henderson Road. This connector overlooks Henderson Industrial Park and the Central Manpower Base.

The climb gradually changed to a descend as we approached Henderson Waves bridge. There was no looking back as we enjoyed the full adrenaline rush while charging down the hill to West Coast Highway as the gradient got steeper.

After passing by Keppel Golf Links and the apartments at Caribbean at Keppel Bay, we arrived at Vivocity. We completed the journey earlier than planned and some skaters grabbed the chance to showcase their skills around the area much to the interest of onlookers.
