Cycling in Singapore

Post by Andrew1964 » Thu, 27 Oct 2005 1:56 am

I may be moving to Singapore for work in six months, and I wanted to know if this move would be compatible with my sunday morning passion, bike riding (road bike). I do about 100 km every time. I know Singapore is fairly small, but is their a place where people go road cycling? Is it possible to go into Malaysia on a bike easily?

Hi Andrew,

There is some good cycling possibilities in the eastern part of Singapore, around Changi as uncle james mentioned. You will see quite a few road cylists around the region there. As you said, Singapore is quite small, BUT it is feasible to make trips of around 100km on a Sunday morning. There is nice trips possible all around the island, which is even around 180km...

For your question about going Malaysia: Yes, you could just cross the border and cycle there. But be aware that cycling as a sports is not exactly popular in Malaysia, hence it can be quite intimidating the way motorists will ignore you, it is in one word stressful.

Better options are to be found going to Batam or Bintan island (Indonesia, 40 min ferry trip), where there are quiet roads and great trips to be made.

Once you are here, just let me know and I would be more than willing to show you around, I am a cyclist myself.
