What is the most popular bike for cyclists in Singapore?
We have two types of customers, the commuter who rides to work and also for leisure on the weekend – these clients would pick a hybrid bike. Then we have the ambitious road cyclist and triathlete types who will constantly upgrade their bikes with the latest releases frequently.
What are some things customers should look for when shopping for a bike?
First, is always weight! The more ambitious activities you intend to embark on, the lighter the bike needs to be. Besides that, know the set-up you want before buying a bike – whether it is for daily commutes, trail adventures, or even both.
Is cycling an expensive sport?
Expensive can be subjective. It depends on the needs and budget of the client. There are those who spend thousands of dollars and still feel that it is great value for the money. If cycling is your deepest passion, you'll spend what makes you better in your sport.
What are some of the best trails for cyclists in Singapore? Any secret tips?
The best ride around Singapore is the RTI (round-the-island) route in the morning. Enjoy the beautiful sunrise at the East Coast, catch a glimpse of Malaysia later on in the route and finally end your journey at Sentosa with a nice coffee at the marina on Quayside Isle.
