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!
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.
Don’t forget your cameras for that Kodak moment!
A Team-Bonding Event
The OCBC Cycle also makes for a great team-bonding activity for your company.
Gather your colleagues and join as a team of 4 and compete against other corporate teams in the OCBC Cycle Corporate Chase spanning 42km!
There will be a total of 30 corporate teams and each company will be able to send 2 teams of 4.
The winning team will be crowned the OCBC Cycle Corporate Chase Champion, complete with a trophy, a champion’s jersey for each rider as well as $400 prize money!
1st and 2nd runner up teams will receive $300 and $200 prize money respectively.
In the mood for a chillax ride with your colleague? Go for The Corporate Bike Ride or The Business Times Cycle of Hope – No race, no stress, no problem!
Discounts Galore And More Goodies
Signing up for OCBC Cycle this year will also entitle you to many discounts such as the Loyal Cyclists discount, discount on The Straits Times Run, as well as a further 10% discount when you pay using your OCBC Credit card.
That’s not all, your event pack will include an OCBC Cycle Shoe bag, a 2018 Mobike pass, a NETS FlashPay card with $2 stored value, vouchers from Robinsons, Timbuk2, and Polar, Personal Accident Insurance, your respective cycling jersey, as well as the 2nd piece of the unique 3-piece OCBC Cycle Finisher medal.
You don’t even need to own a bike to participate!
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.
So gather your friends and family members and sign up for the OCBC Cycle 2018 here!
