6 best family bike routes with little ones, Lifestyle News
Cycling with the family is a great active day for everyone and with Singapore’s many parks and park connectors, you’ll never run out of safe cycling routes for little ones.
Here are some of the most fun (and safest) family cycling routes to start with:
1. Alexandra Park Connector
For an easy, flat canal-side bike path, the Alexandra Park Connector is a great 1.7-mile family route, with plenty of bike paths for toddlers.
Start quietly from Alexandra Canal Linear Park (the park connector connecting Commonwealth Ave to Tanglin Road), then continue to Zion Road.
If your little one still has energy, cycle the entire stretch of the canal to Robertson Quay.
2. East Coast Park
For an easy cycle route by the sea, nothing beats the popular 15km stretch of East Coast Park.
Stretching along the east coast of Singapore from Changi Airport to Fort Road (you can even cycle to Bedok Reservoir if you wish), there are several dedicated cycle paths for everyone. the world.
But remember that while the whole stretch of the park is very kid-friendly, it can get very crowded on the weekends, so it’s best to avoid peak times when you have little ones with you.
3. Green Corridor
Missing the jungle vibes? The Singapore Green Corridor (also known as the Rail Corridor) was part of the Malaysian KTM railway line linking Singapore and Malaysia in the early 20th century, used for travel and freight transport.
Even though the railway ceased operations in 2011, parts of the 24 km route have been converted into a lush and verdant walking and cycling path that crosses the entire island along the north-south axis, from Woodlands in the north to Tanjong Pagar in the south. .
Note: The route largely follows the route of the old railway line, but there are still a few stretches where you may need to lift your bikes from where the park connector path is interrupted.

Like East Coast Park, this park also has bike rental facilities to hire a two-wheeler, four-wheeler or even a go-kart.
Choose to cycle with your little one along the park’s playgrounds (there are eight terrains to choose from!!) or take a leisurely bike ride along the waterfront.

You can now connect with the 3.5km Changi Airport Connector which connects Changi Airport to other attractions on the east coast of Singapore and the Park Connector Network (PCN).
