5 best parks to cycle at in Singapore

Singapore. An urban metropolis, bustling with life and activities to satisfy the needs of her people and all who drop by for a visit. It is the city that never sleeps, where everyone is constantly on the go.

But what if you want to take things at a slower pace for a change? The towering skyscrapers, ever crowded city centers and busy streets can be a bit much at times. Why not de-stress by going for a bike ride in a park? 

With the CarryMe foldable bicycle, you can go to any of Singapore’s many amazing parks with ease. Fold up your CarryMe compact bike and head on out there to explore the other side of Singapore, the one filled with lush green scenery and fresh, open air. Here are some of the best parks in Singapore for you to explore with your CarryMe folding bike!

Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park

Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park is the perfect balance of man-made installations and nature. This urban park is found in the heart of an estate surrounded by HDBs and condominiums, and is rich with a myriad of flora and fauna. 

The perfect place to take your CarryMe for a ride with wide cycling tracks, you can slowly enjoy the river coursing through the park, without having to worry about holding up human traffic. This park is designed for cyclists to take in the amazing sights that are around them with ease. The cycling tracks are also connected by bridges over the river, giving you a chance to just stop at anytime on any one of them to soak in the breathtaking view of the entire park. With it's compact size, the CarryMe leaves only a small footprint in the wonders of nature

East Coast Park

East Coast Park is a popular destination for barbecues and activities such as rollerblading and, more importantly, cycling. There’s a path for cyclists so you can cruise around on the CarryMe micro folding bike freely. The park is scenic and quiet on weekdays, perfect for an afternoon ride!

One of the downsides to this is the park’s accessibility. There are no MRT stations nearby and the easiest way to get there is to take a bus. 

This is where the MRT friendly CarryMe compact folding bicycle comes into play! If you’re afraid of getting lost, you can cycle to the park from Kembangan MRT station. It doesn’t take long to get there with the CarryMe folding bike.

East Coast park is a change of view from other parks as well. The cycling paths lead you from the lush, green scenes at the beginning of the trail to wide paths that go right by the shore line. The sea breeze brushing against your face as you cycle along on your CarryMe micro foldable bicycle is something that you must truly experience for yourself to know how amazing it is.

Sengkang Riverside Park

With the Punggol Reservoir, also known as Sungei Punggol, running through it, Sengkang Riverside Park is calm and tranquil place for you to go to with your CarryMe folding bike. The 21-hectare park was opened to the public in November 2008 and in the 10 years since has become a thriving and exciting place for all to visit. For cyclists there are many trails for you to ride along in the park. 

A personal favorite of ours is the Fruit Tree Trail. Cycling along this trail is so therapeutic and also educational as you can learn more about some of the fruits that Singaporean’s love and how they are grown! Singapore’s largest man-made wetland, PUB’s Sengkang Floating Island, is also located within the park. Take a moment to relax and enjoy the view as you ride by it and you might just spot some of the park’s local residents, such as the blue herring and turtles!

Fort Canning Park

Fort Canning Park is great for nature lovers because of its rich, green scenery and variety of plant life. Because there are a few flights of stairs you have to climb to get to the park, it may be inconvenient for cyclists with bulky bicycles. But that's no problem if you own a CarryMe foldable bike!

The CarryMe foldable bicycle is only 8.4kg and it is compact, making it easy to carry. You can easily bring along your folded CarryMe compact folding bike up the stairs and got to Fort Canning Park instead of leaving it chained up at the foot of the trail.

If you’re looking for an insta-worthy location to take your next Instagram photo, this is it! The place is full of beautiful colonial structures and buildings set amidst vibrant greenery, so snap away!

Marina Bay

Singapore’s bay area is well-connected by the Eastern Coastal Loop, where you’ll be cycling along the bayfront and passing by popular scenic spots in this part of Singapore. You can even cycle to the bay area all the way from East Coast Park. With the CarryMe foldable compact bike this will be a simple task, and you can even dismount, fold up and carry your bike with you to enjoy the sights at your own leisure. 

A highlight of this cycling route is the Gardens by the Bay. You won’t be able to cycle through the Gardens themselves but the sights as you cycling along the south side are still breath-taking. The view as your cruise along on your CarryMe compact folding bike is amazing, especially near dusk when the setting sun lights up the city landscape with vibrant colours. It would be a waste to miss out on that sight, so make sure you have your cameras ready to snap up some picture while you ride along on your CarryMe foldable bike.

Singapore’s parks are lush, vibrant and alive. It would be a shame to not explore them and take in the sights and sounds they have offer. The CarryMe foldable bicycle is the perfect bike to do just that. It’s versatile and easy to use, lightweight and compact which allows it to be brought almost everywhere. Adventure through the various parks around Singapore with your CarryMe folding bike before folding it up and heading out for a night with family and friends.
