Cycling is a growing activity for Singaporeans. More and more people are swapping four wheels for two and taking to the streets of our tiny city-state. If you're one of these individuals, then you must have heard of the Rabbit Route, Singapore's cycling route that links up various places in the city.
The Rabbit Route was established in 2013 by a group of avid cyclists who wanted to create an easy way to get around town on their bikes. It currently uses pedestrian paths, shared footpaths, shared cycle paths and Park Connector Networks (PCNs) across different parts of Singapore to form a continuous loop.
The Rabbit Route consists of seven legs – four main routes and three side routes – that link key areas such as Woodlands, Bukit Timah, Pasir Ris, East Coast Park and Jurong East. Take note that no transport allowance payments apply when taking any part of the Rabbit Route!
Apart from its convenience for two-wheeled transportation, what makes this route so special is how it's marked with fun rabbit sculptures made out of scrap metal by local artist Gabriel Wong throughout the trip. These cute rabbits can be seen outside various MRT Stations like Little India Station and Serangoon Station along their respective legs!
So if you ever find yourself wanting to take your bike out for a spin around town or even a short weekend ride through the countryside in Singapore, why not consider taking the Rabbit Route? With its convenient routes and friendly decorations along the way, it might just turn into your favourite cycling adventure spot!
