On 20th April 2014, the Longhouse kopitiam (coffee shop / food court) closed down for good. A longstanding institution for Singapore’s cyclists, Longhouse used to be the daily meeting point for morning riders from 4am onwards. Another Singapore institution making way for condominium development.
This used to be a regular starting point for my rides around the Macritchie reservoir and the Mandai marshlands in the northwest of Singapore island.
Here’s a short video up Old Upper Thomson Rd, Mandai, Kranji and Lim Chu Kang.
