Challenge the Bukit Timah Mountain Bike Trail for an experience that is sure to give you an adrenaline rush. Cycle down sharp turns and steep descents as you get up close and personal with nature. This 6.5 km trail is well-known among the biking community, and is lauded as one of the most prominent biking trails in Singapore. 

It’s also a great place to practice your biking skills, especially if you’re looking for something beyond park connectors. Bikers can choose trails of varying difficulties, with the most intense trail featuring drop-offs, steep climbs, and tricky obstacles. The Bukit Timah Mountain Bike Trail is suitable for more experienced bikers.

Address: Hindhede Dr, Singapore 589318

Mandai Track 15

Mandai Track 15 is another popular off-road biking trail, which is more widely known as the Mandai T-15 trail. The terrain on the trail is smoother compared to more challenging trails such as the Bukit Timah Mountain Bike Trail, but its 7 km length makes it a test in endurance. 

The trail features muddy terrain, uneven paths, and a scenic view of the Central Catchment Nature Reserve. If you’re lucky, you can even spot unusual insects and rare animal sightings such as the Oriental Whip Snake and Sambar Deer. Do note the Mandai T-15 trail is shared between hikers and bikers, so the latter group should exercise caution while cycling on the trail.

The Chestnut Biking Trail forms part of the Northern Biking Loop, and has something for bikers across all difficulty levels. Making use of its natural landscape in the trail, the gentle climb and smooth descent seem deceptively easy, but some technique is needed to execute a flawless ascent and descent. 

The trail has some surprises in store as well — with fallen log obstacles and steep slopes that will give bikers an adrenaline rush. Whether you want to get started with off-road biking or showcase your skills to friends, Chestnut Nature Park provides an unforgettable biking experience.

Ketam Mountain Bike Park

For a true off-road experience, leave mainland Singapore for a few hours and take a ferry to Pulau Ubin, where Ketam Mountain Bike Park awaits. This place is a biker’s paradise with more than 10 km of mountain bike trails catering to both leisure cycling, as well as international competitions. The park is the best place to visit for competitive bikers as it is the first in Singapore to meet international standards for mountain biking competitions. 

Ride down winding rustic trails with plenty of airtime, while nearby shelters and lookout points add to the scenery. Bikers can also catch a glimpse of the disused Ketam Quarry, re-landscaped into the bike park and helping in nature rehabilitation and conservation. This is also where nature enthusiasts can spot wildlife such as the Red-wattled Lapwing and Baya Weaver along the trail. 

Alternatively, hop on a cycling tour of Pulau Ubin where participants can learn about the history of Pulau Ubin as you pass by rustic original local houses and meet friendly villagers.
