Looking for quality foldable bicycles to take you places in Singapore? We share the best two-wheelers to spend your money on.
There’s nothing like spending an afternoon exploring Singapore’s secret spots, lush parks and alleys that are full of character. Having an adventure on foot is a great idea, so you don’t miss out on the nooks and crannies that are inaccessible by car. But in the perennial heat of our sunny island, we can all say we appreciate something that’ll get us around just a little faster. If you’re considering a foldable bicycle to sniff out the best cycling routes in Singapore, here are some fantastic options.
