Looking to get out with (or without) the family for a bike ride? There are plenty of places in Singapore that are too congested and many places that are just too dangerous to cycle. Here are some safer options!
#1 Car-Free Sunday SG
The Urban Redevelopment Authority sponsors closing several major roads in the CBD and Civic District the last Sunday of the month from 8am to 12 noon. facebook.com/carfreesundaysg
Rent bikes at SAFRA Punggol or the Punggol Settlement and explore a coastal ride that will find you cruising not only boardwalks, but also the dirt roads of Coney Island. There are places to eat when you’re done, too.
#3 Mandai Track 15
This trail next to the Singapore Zoo is perfect for beginner mountain bikers. Want a little more exercise? Pick up the Mandai Park Connector and check out the trails in Chestnut Nature Park.
#4 Pulau Ubin
Catch a bumboat to Singapore’s wilder side where you can rent bikes. Try one of the easier trails or test your strength at the Ketam Mountain Bike Park, a challenging path for even advanced riders.
#5 Labrador Nature Reserve
Looking for a less crowded spot? This seaside park has plenty of paths, trails and quiet back lanes for the kids to burn off some energy on two wheels.
