What’s the bike scene like in Singapore for females?
On a whole, more Singaporeans take cycling leisurely and it was never part of our daily commute. Irregardless to that, I believed that the bike scene for females here in Singapore is growing as I have been getting more queries from the girls here on how to setup a fixie. I am sure that the population of women cyclists in this country would grow in the months to come.
What’s your favourite ride right now?
I am riding the ST500 Sparton, which is the best birthday present given from my other half and i ride that all the time. I believe my next favourite will be the Frejus once its fully set up.
Favourite riding outfit: Shorts and tanktops! Its hot here in Singapore… all year round.
Favourite food: Tom Yum and Sambal Goreng.
