Singapore, from a cyclists perspective

I didn’t ride a bike in Singapore and to be honest I didn’t want to. Spending three days in Singapore made me grateful to live in a great cycling city like Adelaide. While I do sometimes complain about the infrastructure that we do have, at least we have it, and we have a political structure that gives us a voice.

Of the people that I did see riding bikes, I only saw one person wearing a helmet and they were riding a reasonable looking road bike. Who was it that said that mandatory helmet laws stop people from cycling?

I saw one bike shop, and I saw a heck of a lot of other types of shops and shopping centres in Singapore.

Singapore’s population at the 2012 census was  5,312,400, that’s 7,315 people per km2 (wikipedia). If Singapore invested time and money into planning it’s transport infrastructure then imagine how many cars would be off the roads?!

A cleaner greener Singapore would be amazing!
