Wondering where to buy a bike in Singapore, mama? Here are the best bicycle shops and online bike stores!
Bicycles are a wonderful way to get around Singapore, not to mention spend quality outdoor time with the kiddos on one of the island’s many fab bike paths or park connectors. Whether you’re nipping around the ‘hood running some quick errands (we’ll take bike racks over the hassle of parking garages or taxi queues any day!), commuting to work, or doing some hardcore mountain biking on the weekends, there are heaps of reasons to snag yourself some 2-wheeled transport, mama. Here’s our guide to the best bicycle shops in Singapore! (Pssst! Don’t know how to ride a bike, even grown-ups can take lessons!)

Singapore Bike-Sharing Services
Keen to pedal around town efficiently but not ready to buy a bike of your own? We were all over the bike sharing craze when it launched in Singapore back in 2017; while original services like O.Bike, Mobike and ofo have since ceased operations in Singapore, new companies have moved in, including Anywheel, SG Bike, and Moov Technology (which doesn’t seem to have a website yet but is expected to roll out 45,000 bikes across Singapore by mid-November, according to the Straits Times).
