The Ultimate Guide To Cycling in Singapore

April 20, 2016

ggv_guide to cyclying

Cycling is not just a trend. It’s a lifestyle. With the support of the Active Mobility Advisory Panel, let’s take the chance to embrace alternative ways to get moving in Singapore. Time to take your #DreamRide. If you’re still wondering which bicycle to invest in, or if should you just rent one for the weekend, be spoilt for choice with this guide.


Should I Buy Or Rent?

[Original source]

  1. Do you have an average build (buying clothes off the rack is a breeze)?
    • If you have trouble finding a bicycle that fits your size, you might want to look into a customised bike to fit your needs.
  2. Do you ride long distances?
    • Then you probably are fussy about how a bike fits and chances are you will not like the rental bikes. If you don’t ride much, you can’t tell much of a difference and a rental bike will be just fine.
  3. Do you have any pre-existing medical issues that may or have affected your comfort when riding?
    • You’ll probably have trouble with any bike – even your own. Remember to bring your own pedals and your own saddle.

If your answer is yes to all the above, it’s about time you get your own bike!

I Want To Rent A Bike

Until the concept of Bikesharing comes into Singapore, the only way to do it here is to head to selected bike shops to rent out bicycles.

Cheaper, Wallet-friendly Fun

If you’re not ready to commit a single bicycle, you can try out multiple bicycles types when you rent. Did you know that you can rent and return your bicycles at any of the six kiosks along the Eastern Coastal PCN?

Price: $5 per hour (standard bike) or $10 (tandem bike)

More information here.
