Bored Of Leg Day In The Gym? Train And Enjoy Singapore’s Scenery At OCBC Cycle 2018

With more executives paying closer attention to their health and physical wellness, exercise has become a part of everyone’s weekly routine.

However, exercising regularly does not remove the dread we feel when we have to tackle cardio workouts. Fortunately, there’re many ways for you to do cardio.

Enter, Cycling! It lets you clock in your cardio hours, train your legs, and travel around! Who doesn’t love the feeling of the wind in their hair?

No one does cycling better than OCBC Cycle and this year, the annual cycling extravaganza is happening in May!

A Casual Cycling Affair

While the OCBC Cycle might sound like a competitive cycling event, it is not! You can choose to take it easy and go for the non-competitive rides.

While The Straits Times Ride (23km) has been sold out, there’s still The Sportive Ride (42km).

Roads and sections of the expressway are closed off for cyclists participating in both rides, offering scenic sights of Singapore’s city skyline – great way to get their Instagram-worthy selfies done!
