Mountain biking trails in Singapore seeing more traffic as sport increases in popularity
Five official mountain bike trails here are gaining traction among cyclists, as more embrace the sport.
The most popular, a 6km route at the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, attracts 500 to 700 cyclists every weekend.
Ketam trail on Pulau Ubin, which winds about 8km around Ketam Quarry, lures around 300 cyclists every weekend - despite a 10-minute boat ride and 3km cycle before one gets there.
More experienced mountain bikers are also heading to the bike trail at Kent Ridge Park. The narrow, slippery trail of roughly 3.5km is the most technically challenging in Singapore, and includes an adrenaline-pumping 300-m downhill stretch.
