T-Rex on the loose in the CBD

Two "Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaurs" terrorised the Central Business District (CBD) yesterday, lumbering on their in-line skates as Singaporeans gaped.

They were among the thousands who showed up for the return of Car-Free Sunday SG after it went on a brief hiatus from July.

Now in its second edition, the monthly Sunday morning event has been stretched from a 4.7km route to a 5.5km one. With roads closed and buses diverted, participants got to skate, cycle or run from the National Gallery Singapore, passing landmarks such as the Esplanade along the way, to the Telok Ayer conservation area where cafes opened earlier and heritage tours were held.

This second instalment of Car-Free Sunday will run until April next year, and be held on the following dates: Nov 27, Jan 22, Feb 26, March 26 and April 30.
