Cycling in Singapore

Singapore is a small island. Given a decent road bike, you can cycle around the island in just a few hours !
And it is precisely the size of our country which makes it an ideal place to go on a Tour de Singapore, local style!

Hardcore bikers can join the roadies on some of Singapore's popular biking stretches of concrete alongside
the whizzing cars, or be one with nature mountain biking the scenic off-road trails of some of Singapore's
last remaining nature reserves and parks .

If you're into technical biking , you can explore the BMX or slalom bike tracks, join the urban street bike culture
at the Youth Park, or even patiently practise the art of biketrial in the company of your neighbourhood biketrial guru!

Leisure bikers who would rather pedal at leisure and avoid riding the heavy vehicle traffic, can explore Singapore's
green network using Singapore's park connectors which allows them to travel from park to park, coast to coast,
park to town centres or just about anywhere on this island.

If you're feeling more adventurous, you can ride to the island of Sentosa or hop onto a bumboat which
will lead you to Pulau Ubin , an island in the northern part in Singapore.

So what are you waiting for? Get out and ride !!!! And don't forget to ride safely!

Bike Shops / Bike Rental Shops in Singapore

To get started, you will need a bike that works!!! Regardless of your level of competence, we would recommend

Cycling Routes on the Roads

Road cycling in Singapore is great because the roads are of very high quality. While cycling is not allowed on the expressways, it is allowed on all other types of roads. Singapore lacks mountains but has a good mix of short sharp hills, rolling country and flat land.

Some of the sharpest hills are :-

Mount Faber Park (the road to the Cable Car Station)
http://www.nparks.gov.sg/nparks_cms/display_park.asp?parkid=18

Kent Ridge Park (short but you better have some really small gears!!)
http://www.nparks.gov.sg/parks/loc/par-loc-ken_rid.shtml
http://www.mindef.gov.sg/army/armygreenpark/intro.htm

Bukit Batok Hill (the hill leading to the Bukit Batok Park along Upper Bukit Timah Road opposite the Fire Station)
http://www.nparks.gov.sg/parks/loc/par-loc-bt_bat_nat.shtml

Telok Blangah Hill Park (the loop which leads up to Telok Blangah Hill Park and down again)
http://www.nparks.gov.sg/nparks_cms/display_park.asp?parkid=21

For longer climbs , the following road is favored :-

South Buona Vista Road (aka the Gap and you know why its called that) http://www.mindef.gov.sg/army/armygreenpark/location.htm#map

If panting up short steep hills is not your thing, you can try the gentle rolling hills on the two roads below C riding there is like riding a roller coaster!

Mandai Road
Go to Streetdirectory.com

Yio Chu Kang Road
Go to Streetdirectory.com

For the flat days when you want to imagine you're Jan Ullrich doing a flat 40km time-trial, you can ride along :-

Changi Coast Road (beside the runway of Changi Airport)
Go to Streetdirectory.com

Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim (starts at the Jurong Bird Park and ends at the Second Link to Malaysia)

Off-Road Mountain Biking Trails

Despite Singapore not having the benefit of any mountains, mountain biking is fast becoming a very popular sport!!!
Some of Singapore's popular mountain bike trails are nestled in thick, lush greenery in the heart of our nature reserves and parks.

Bukit Timah Mountain Bike Trail (BT) C (intermediate / advance level) http://www.nparks.gov.sg/nparks_cms/display_level2.asp?parkid=8&catid=4#

Chestnut - Track 15 - Mandai (an extension of the BT trail which starts at Chestnut Drive, lamp post 291
and heads towards the Mandai area) (beginner / intermediate level)

Other MTB Trails connected to BT (check out other trails around and connected to the Bukit Timah area, but please be warned that many of these trails are out of bounds to bikers) (beginner / intermediate level)

Pulau Ubin
http://www.nparks.gov.sg/nparks_cms/display_park.asp?parkid=6

* West and North Route (beginner / intermediate level)

* Eastern Route (intermediate / advance level)

* Pedal Ubin (beginner / intermediate / advance level bike guided tours) http://habitatnews.nus.edu.sg/activities/ubinbiking/ubinBiking.html
http://habitatnews.nus.edu.sg/activities/pedalubin/

Sentosa Bike Trail (approx 4 permanently maintained trails in Sentosa; trails are graded so beginners are warned of difficulty of path)
http://www.sentosa.com.sg/useful_info/view_map.html

* Concrete Marked-out Route (beginner / intermediate level)

* Unmarked Off-Road Trails (intermediate / advance level) - a majority of the off-road trails have been reclaimed

Tampines Mountain Bike Trail (a very new gravelly biketrail) (beginner / intermediate level)
C located at the junction of Tampines Ave and Tampines Avenue 7, for directions go to following website
and look for a star marked on the relevant page
Go to Streetdirectory.com

Boys Brigade Mountain Bike Trail (located next to Singapore Polytechnic along Commonwealth Ave West,
but currently not maintained)
http://content.mtbr.com/pscTrails/AsiaandPacific-Other/,Boy's,Brigade,Mountain,Bike,Trail/PRD_164917_4517crx.aspx

Please remember to observe trail etiquette when cycling at BT and the other MTB trails

| back to top |

Downhill and Slalom Trails

Bukit Timah is Singapore's highest hill standing at only 163.63 metres! However it is a pity that this steep concrete hill
and the connected branching off-road trails is off-limits to cyclists! But that does not dampen the spirit of Singapore's downhillers who settle for some of the more challenging technical downhill and slalom tracks that Singapore has to offer!

Sentosa Bike Trail (some parts of the more technical gnarly downward sloping trails make for a good downhill ride)
http://www.sentosa.com.sg/useful_info/view_map.html

Gangsa Slalom Track (enter from Bukit Panjang Road-Zhenghua Flyover under the BKE, or ride along the MTB trail
from Chestnut to Track 15 and you will hit this track) (see above)

Pulau Ubin (the Eastern routes will take you through some amazing downhill slopes)
http://www.nparks.gov.sg/nparks_cms/display_park.asp?parkid=6

Again, please remember to observe trail etiquette , don your safety gear, bring your buddies and watch out for oncoming human and vehicle traffic if you feel the urge to attempt some local downhillin'!

BMX Tracks, Flatlanders and Bike Parks

BMX existed in Singapore even before the first mountain-bikes graced our shores. BMX is a great sport with sub-disciplines such as BMX racing, flatland, street, dirt and vert. There are many BMX places in Singapore for general BMX enjoyment.

Tampines BMX Track (located at the junction of Tampines Ave 9 and Tampines Avenue 7, for directions go to following website and look for a star marked on the relevant page)
Go to Streetdirectory.com

Singapore BMX (informative website on BMX in Singapore)
http://www.osbmx.com/

Flatland is another discipline that evolved from BMX. Some informative websites on Flatland, Vert, Street/Park and Freestyle Riding :-

Twenty-Inch Circle (a Singapore Flatland site containing lots of news about the Singapore flatland and freestyle activities here on our little island)
http://www.20incho.com

Bicycle Freestyle Interest Group

BikeTrial Obstacles and Course

The sport of BikeTrial involves using a bike to clear a whole course of very difficult obstacles ranging from stacks of pallets, an array of different sized logs and boulders. Big pools of water are also in the way for the rider to make life a wee bit harder. The course has to be completed without your feet touching the ground if possible.

To attempt simple biketrial stunts, you don't need more than a simple roadside curb to practice jumping on and off or a flight of stairs to balance your bike on. For more complicated stunts, you will need natural or man-made obstacles, and patience, concentration and a wealth of skill and experience!!!

For more information on this sport, check out the following website :-

Park Connectors and Other Bike Trails

The Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore (URA) plans to create a green network so huge, so seamless, it would seem as if we could get from park to park, coast to coast, park to town centres or just about anywhere on this island.

They plan to join up our parks through a comprehensive green network, allowing you to travel on foot or bicycle to other parks nearby. And the green network can be extended to link parks with town centres, sports complexes and homes.

Currently, there are about 40 km of park connectors. The challenge is to build 3 times more green connectors or another 120 km to complete an island-wide network by the year 2015 .
