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!

Family Fun For Everyone

Cycling makes for a great family activity. Loop the kids into the fun and participate in the Mighty Savers® Kids and Family Ride!

Mighty Savers Kids Ride and Family Ride

Themed ‘Bubbly Fun’, the route comprises zones that will be filled with curtains of endless bubbles!

Children as young as 2 years old can participate in the 100m course, while the older kids get to spend 20 – 30 minutes on the circuit.

For children between 2 – 5 years old who are participating in the 100m course, one parent will be allowed to walk alongside them for supervision.

That’s right, Mobike has partnered up with OCBC Cycle so that participants are able to reserve and use a Mobike for the event!

While bike rentals have been available all along, participants had to pay for their rentals. This year, it’s completely free of charge!

However, do note that there are only 2,000 Mobikes up for rental, so sign up early and reserve your bike!

If you’re looking to unwind, OCBC Cycle 2018 is the best place for you to cycle on open roads and take your mind off work.
