Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) chief executive Lim Eng Hwee has been cycling to work since he was chief planner for the authority some 10 years ago.
He is heartened by the uptrend in cycling and is hopeful that more people will take to the “iron horse” when cycling infrastructure becomes more developed.
At the URA, he has encouraged fellow colleagues to find biking buddies to cycle to work when they can.
The URA office in Maxwell Road is cyclist-friendly, with shower facilities and ample bike rests.
Mr Lim, 55, told The Straits Times that he has not cycled to work
