Pedal Along the Singapore River
Singapore may not have bicycle lanes on its roads, but the country does have a wonderful and growing network of bike-friendly asphalt paths along its many canals and rivers that are sometimes joined up with pathways in parks and along old rail corridors. A great easy 10- to 15km round-trip stretch to sample is along the Singapore River. Join the riverside pathway just off of Zion Road (by the food court) near the the Great World City shopping mall — rent a bike nearby from Bike Connect at 23 Hoot Kiam Road. Pedal all the way to the old shophouses of Boat Quay where the river empties into Marina Bay and then the South China Seas at the heart of Singapore’s Colonial core. From there, see the the grand Fullerton Hotel (once the national post office), the Asian Civilizations Museum (originally the city’s courthouse), and several historic bridges. Along the way keep your eyes peeled for adorable otters and gorgeous birds like brilliant blue kingfishers and big-billed great hornbills.
