I didn’t ride a bike in Singapore and to be honest I didn’t want to. Spending three days in Singapore made meÂ gratefulÂ 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 Â 5,312,400, that’s 7,315 people perÂ km2Â (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!
