Commute in style with chic two-wheelers from these cool bicycle specialists in the city
Believe it or not, Singapore is a great city for cyclists; we boast a comprehensive cycling network that connects the entire city through park connectors and cycling paths – getting from point A to point B is an easy feat . It also helps that cycling is a good way to sneak in some exercise as well as save the environment. Switch your four wheels for two, and get yourselves a spiffy bicycle, say a fixie or a pretty cruiser, at these awesome bike shops.
If long distance commutes on two-wheelers seem unbearable to you, try riding with a neat foldable bicycle from Mighty Veloe, so you can take your trusty two-wheelers along with you on the train. The foldable bike specialist provides top-notch service (we’ve heard raving reviews!) and has a good range of brands such as Bromption, Strida, and Mondo.
