Even if you don’t live in the East, chances are you’ve probably been to East Coast Park at least once in your life. This is a great 15km route for everything from picnics to photoshoot and of course, cycling. And don't worry, there's plenty of takeaway picks along the entire stretch.

There's no shortage of takeaway place in the area, including a hawker centre that's right next to the water.
