by: The Beat Asia
If you want to get away even just for the weekend, many cycling routes are available in the city-state that can give you a refreshing break. Not only that, you'll enjoy a lot of health benefits along the way. It's like hitting two birds with one stone!
Go on a city adventure and try these cycling routes in Singapore on your next free day:
Eastern Coastal Loop
Start Point: Pasir Ris Town Park
End Point: East Coast Park (Carpark C4)
Level of Difficulty: Moderate
Distance: 17.5 kilometres
Estimated cycling time (no stops): 1.5 to 2 hours
The Eastern Coastal Loop is one of the most popular cycling routes in Singapore. Start your journey at Pasir Ris Town Park and make your way to Tampines Eco Green, an eco-friendly park featuring grasslands, freshwater wetlands, and a secondary forest. From there, continue cycling as you pass through the Bedok Reservoir Park, Bedok Food Centre, Bedok Jetty, and finally reach East Coast Park (Carpark C4).
To get to the start point, ride the MRT to Pasir Ris Station or bus service numbers 3, 5, 6, 12, 15, 17, 21, 58, 88, or 403 to Pasir Ris Bus Interchange. From there, walk for 10 minutes to reach the park. If you don’t own a bicycle, you can rent one at PCN Pitstop (located both at the start and end point).
North Eastern Riverine Loop
Start and End Point: Punggol Park
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Distance: 26 kilometres
Estimated cycling time (no stops): 2 hours
Launched in 2013, the North Eastern Riverine Loop is a cycling route that links green spaces across Singapore. Start at Punggol Park and make your way to Kampung Lorong Buangkok and Sengkang Riverside Park. From there, continue cycling as you pass through Punggol PC, Punggol Point Walk, Punggol Promenade Nature Walk, and Punggol Promenade Riverside Walk. Afterward, you’re left with just one kilometre until you reach Punggol Park again.
To get to the start point, ride the North East MRT Line to Hougang and ride bus service numbers 80, 82, 87, or 89 to Blk 458 Hougang Avenue 10. Walk for a minute to get to the park. If you don’t own a bicycle, you can rent one at GoCycling @ Punggol Park.

Start Point: Admiralty Park
End Point: Sembawang Park
Level of Difficulty: Moderate to Hard
Distance: 25 kilometres
Estimated cycling time (no stops): 2 to 2.5 hours
The Northern Explorer Loop connects 11 parks and nature sites, which makes it an ideal route for park hopping. From Admiralty Park, head towards Woodlands Waterfront (one of the longest coastal jetties in Singapore) then Woodlands Town Garden. From there, prepare yourself to go through a more challenging path at Ulu Sembawang PC and Central Catchment PC. Afterwards, you can bike at ease as you pass through Lower Seletar Reservoir Park, Yishun Park, and finally at Sembawang Park.
To get to the start point, ride the North South Line to Woodlands MRT Station then walk for about 15 minutes to get to the park. Sadly, no rental bicycles are available around the start point. What you can do instead is rent one through City Scoot or get yourself a foldable bicycle so you can bring it inside the MRT or the bus.
