SINGAPORE - Slots are still available for Saturday's (April 21) Eat And Ride (EAR) session, which is the first build-up activity for this year's The Straits Times Run.
The cafe bike trail - which will be tackled at a leisurely pace - will see participants make three pit stops at cafes while negotiating the scenic north-east of Singapore.
The trail starts at Punggol Park, before participants wind their way along the panoramic Punggol Waterway area, with stops at cafes along Tebing Lane, Punggol Settlement and Seletar Aerospace Park.
All participants will be provided with a bicycle from oBike, and a shuttle bus will ferry participants back to Punggol Park after the event.
The trail's first pit stop will be at Seoul Good, where participants can satiate their appetite with Korean fried chicken wings and iced tea.
They then ride on to Punggol Settlement to chill out with some chendol, courtesy of Inspirit House.
The last pit stop will be at The Summerhouse, which is not only noted for its food and beverage offerings, but also for being Instagram-worthy due to its scenic setting at the Seletar Aerospace Park.
The build-up to the sixth instalment of the Sept 23 ST Run will feature a range of fitness and lifestyle activities geared towards getting participants ready.
Besides Eat And Ride, the activities include a Bounce Fit session (a form of trampoline) on May 5, a CrossFit session at Innervate Fitness on June 17 and a cardio three-way session at TripleFit on July 22.
