Recently, we brought our CarryMe foldable bikes out for a day to shoot some photos at Sentosa. We usually brought our compact foldable bikes to smaller areas like parks or neighbourhood places like Tiong Bahru, so touring around Sentosa was the most taxing cycling trip so far.
Thankfully, the CarryMe made it easy for us to get around because of how lightweight and compact this folding bicycle is.
We set off early in the morning, taking the train from Boon Keng MRT.
The CarryMe compact foldable bicycle meets the size criteria set by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) for foldable bikes allowed on public transport.
We took a train, alighting at Harbourfront MRT. There were quite a few people on this cycling trip but thankfully, the CarryMe folding bike was lightweight at only 8.4kg so we folded, rolled and lifted our folding bikes up staircases smoothly.
Entering Sentosa through the Sentosa Boardwalk
It also made getting to Sentosa easier for us because we went by the Sentosa Boardwalk (which, by the way, is free until 31 Dec 2020) instead of taking the monorail. Cycling in was a breeze and even though cycling isn’t allowed within Resort World Sentosa premises, we still managed to roll our folded CarryMe bicycles to get to Sentosa’s cycling trail. Not to mention, walking into Sentosa is free! Compared to paying $4 to take the monorail in, walking (or cycling in) is definitely a more economically friendly option.
Not only does it save our wallets, cycling in takes much less time than walking. With Singapore’s humid weather, it is understandable why most people prefer taking the monorail than walking in the scorching hot sun. But with our handy CarryMe compact micro bikes, we were able to beat the heat and cycle in quickly!
It also helped in cooling us down as we enjoyed the breeze while cycling in.
We went in through Sentosa’s on-road cycling lanes and headed for our next destination: Palawan Beach!
Heading to Palawan Beach
Although it was a Tuesday, there were still a few beachgoers soaking up some sun at Palawan Beach. We even had conversations with passers-by who were intrigued by our CarryMe folding bicycles. One of them even requested to see the bike folded up.
This goes to show how eye-catching the CarryMe foldable bicycle is and how it can spark an interesting exchange with other people.
The Sky Blue and Amber Orange CarryMe foldable bikes’ bright colours fit in really well at the beach.
Having early dinner at Beach Station
Afterwards, we cycled further down to Beach Station for some MacDonalds to end our day at Sentosa. We folded up our CarryMe folding bikes and placed them beside our table.
The CarryMe micro foldable bike is convenient for eating out too! Unlike a typical mountain bike, the CarryMe foldable bike doesn’t require parking because you can bring it with you on the go.
Cycling back to VivoCity
To end off our Sentosa cycling trip, we cycled back to VivoCity.
The CarryMe can be folded and rolled into indoor spaces such as inside shopping malls. We were able to roll it into VivoCity without any trouble.
We took a train back to Boon Keng MRT and returned to our retail store to return the CarryMe folding bicycles and called it a day.
Cycling at Sentosa was tiring but rewarding at the same time. I couldn’t have imagined cycling in with any other bicycle as the CarryMe helped me save so much time and energy because of how easy it was to fold and roll it at places where I had to dismount and push.
The CarryMe folding bike is also only 8.4kg, which made it easy for us to go through underpasses as we could just carry the bike down the stairs.
Overall, cycling to Sentosa was made simple and enjoyable with the compact and light CarryMe foldable bike!
