An unplanned visit to Tampines Bike Park turned out to be an interesting and fun trip. I will certainly be back for more later.
I entered via the trail on the right side, next to the car park. I found out later that there was another entrance. I assume this is through the car park. People need to sign in for the BMX tracks and take a course before they can cycle there.
In any case, I saw that signboard after cycling about 5 mins. That red patch “You are Here” is the location of the signboard. There are only two huts for shelter here. Always check for the weather forecast and bring along water before coming here. This spot is a good place for a short rest as there are two wooden seats there.
A short distance from here is the second hut with a view of the two ponds, as shown in the previous post – Tampines Bike Park – Nature and Tranquility. I love the tranquility of this section of the trail.
Onwards, cycle further into the forest trail. Loose sandy soil were a wee bit tough to cycle after a long respite.
Soon you will pass the substation. Did not take any picture, next time I will.
After that, more sandy trail.
Further up, there is a slight incline to the hilltop. I opted out of this since I was not wearing a helmet and the mountain bike had no suspension whatsoever.
Note – all cyclists please wear helmets if you plan to cycle the more adventurous trails here. Up until that incline, the trail is pretty flat.
From pictures posted, the hilltop shows a beautiful view of the surrounding area. Something to look forward next time.
If you don’t own a bicycle, you can rent one at SunPlaza, just across the road from Tampines Bike Park. Alternatively, rent one from the bike kiosk at Pasir Ris Town Park. Cycle along the Tampines Park Connector to reach here.
A look back at Tampines Bike Park before I head home. More to come!
