Spiceroads Cycle Tours launches three new short tours in Singapore: a culture vulture heritage revelation, an atmospheric evening jaunt and a challenging road bike ride. Each tour shows a difference perspective of this fascinating city.
“Not many people think of cycling when they think of Singapore, but Singapore is a fantastic place to explore by bike. The roads are good, but there is also a great network of cycle paths, so it is a safe and fun way to discover the interesting sites and all the different cultures,” says Struan Robertson, CEO of SpiceRoads Cycle Tours.
