5 Best Bicycle Routes and Bike Trails in Singapore - Top 5 Cycling Areas and Trails in the Lion City

Considered one of the best ways to explore the Lion City, cycling offers visitors the chance to veer off the beaten path and work up a sweat at the same time. Here are five of Singapore's top biking routes to explore during your next getaway to the island nation.


The Jurassic Mile

As one of the newest biking routes to have been established in Singapore, the Jurassic Mile allows cyclists to go back in time. The easy 3.5-kilometre ride, which kicks off from the coastal road of Tanah Merah, leads to the Changi Airport Terminal 4 where one can get up close and personal with dinosaurs including Velociraptors and T-Rex at the airport's dinosaur enclave. Serving as a part of the Changi Airport Connector route, bikers can even cycle their way to Terminal 2 to grab a scrumptious breakfast at the Hubs & Spokes Cafe. This biking trail is open during the nighttime as well for those who prefer to peddle away after dark.


Singapore Round Island Loop

Completing the Singapore Round Island Loop is a feat that is reserved for serious bikers and biking fanatics. This is one of the most challenging cycling routes in Singapore. The distance covered on this epic bike ride is at its bare minimum at least 120km long and the path includes road and gravel terrains. Perfect for expert or intermediary level cyclists, the most intimidating aspect of the ride is its length. Some of the main highlights of this tour include enjoying a visit to Tuas and the chance to witness Kranji's lush vegetation while bikers can also catch the sunrise at East Coastal Park or Punggol.


Mandai Loop

Those who are based at the Ascott Raffles Place Singapore or any similar serviced accommodation in Singapore can also attempt the Manfai Loop route, which is 40km in length. Concentrated around the Central Catchment Reserve in Singapore, this looping and climbing bike trail is perfect for those in search of a challenge. Starting from the Orchard Road MRT, this engaging bike ride, which takes one to the heart of the Central Catchment Nature Reserve is a great way to get back to nature in highly cosmopolitan Singapore.


Seletar Loop

Ranked among the most popular routes among Singaporean cyclists and biking enthusiasts, this fun and thrilling trail takes you on a ride across the Seletar Aerospace Park. The 12-kilometre trail is not without its own difficulties so bikers with at least intermediate level skills should attempt to tackle this path. This is a trail where you can improve or work on your timing while navigating the loop around the Seletar Aerospace Park also offers bikers the chance to enjoy a refreshing drink from the Soek Seng 1954 Bicycle Cafe and Sunset Grill where you can also enjoy a meal after your biking experience.


Round Island Route

This is the eastern section of the round island tour, and it is most suitable for cyclists with experience. The 75km long trail, which starts from Rower's Bay Park and ends at Berlayer Creek not only offers stunning coastal views but also opportunities to spend time in natural surroundings.
