Take a walk – or rather, bike – on the wild side of Singapore via the 20-kilometre Western Adventure Loop. Start off slow from the lush, green space of Choa Chu Kang Park before picking up speed as you wheel through the parks and greenway. For a proper challenge, take on the rugged terrain of Zhenghua Park where pockets of vegetation are deliberately left wild to add to the park's rural charm. Then head for the 75-hectare Dairy Farm Nature Park, located in a rustic environment complete with hiking and biking trails. Traverse the hilly terrain before taking a break to soak up the stunning views of the nearby quarry and lake near the south-western end of the park.
Beyond the modern skyscrapers, old shophouses, and iconic tourist traps are beautiful nature parks filled with an abundance of flora and fauna. While the green spaces are great for a much-needed scenic escape from the busy city, it's also ace for mountain biking enthusiasts to work on their speed, strength, and stamina while overcoming challenging obstacles – think lung-busting climbs, sharp corners, muddy paths, and rocky roads. From novice to extremely difficult courses, here are the best mountain biking trails for some thigh-burning adventure.
