Singapore Bike Adventure around Pulau Ubin

Enjoy an outdoor escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown Singapore on Pulau Ubin, a small, tranquil island off Singapore’s northeast shore. During an eco-friendly bike tour, you’ll cycle around the island to look for native wildlife like wild boar, monkeys and water monitors. A knowledgeable guide will lead you past rural sights like fruit farms, mangroves and beaches while telling you about the island, where Singapore’s only authentic ‘kampungs,’ (villages) still remain.

What You Can Expect

Singapore Bike Adventure around Pulau Ubin

Biking Around Pulau Ubin

Your bike tour starts on Pulau Ubin, so you’ll need to make your own way to the small island from Singapore via a 10-minute bumboat ride. When you arrive, meet your experienced guide in front of the National Parks Information Kiosk across from the ferry terminal.

During the tour orientation, your guide will outfit you with your bike and helmet and provide a few safety details. Then take off along easy and moderate riding routes, both paved and unpaved, that your guide will choose based on the conditions of the day. Make stops during the tour to take photos and listen to information from your guide about the island’s history, natural environment and local village life in the kampungs.

One route may lead you to the island’s western half, where you can cycle to the Pekan Quarry. Perhaps visit the German Girl Shrine, and enjoy a view of the Western Straits of Johor. Or, you may explore eastern Ubin to see fruit plantations near Chek Jawa and admire the nearly unspoiled beaches and coastal forests, home to native wildlife.

Whatever route you take, at the end of your bike tour, you’ll leave with an appreciation for this tiny, lush piece of rural local life, so close to the skyscrapers of downtown Singapore.

This was an excellent experience we had. Our guide, Fadil was fantastic, very knowledgable as well as entertaining. A trip around the island was so worthwhile as it gave an insight into the original way of life in Singapore (in Kampong villages). This is definitely a must do.

Despite very hot and humid conditions, the tracks were mostly in shade so it was quite pleasant. Our tour guide was a local so had estensive knowledge of the island history, flora and fauna and he was easy to communicate with. He made sure we travelled on paths and at speeds that suited our age and fitness levels so we felt safe at all times. The island is quite beautiful and the actual riding time was about two hours, quite enough in thta heat. We would defintiely recommend it to others.

Had a great time. The guide was very considerate of our ages (72 and 71)' but we managed the ride with some walking.

Very nice experience! The guide was knowledgeable and well prepared. He is a native from the island and has an interesting story about everything you will pass by. The island is worth seeing especially when you have a certain ideas of a "modern" Singapore. What you will see here will surprise you.

This was a very worthwhile outing. Palau Ubin is a jungle park, a short ferry ride from Urban Singapore. The guide was local and knew where to find wildllife and had the backstory on what was happening on the island. I think both the bike outings and paddle outings would be a veyr good way to spend a day in Singapore.

I did this tour 3 Mar 13 (AUD46.93). I loved it! This was my 4th trip to Sgp and I was determined NOT to go anywhere near Orchard Rd. I wanted to see the real Sgp with some peace, quiet and tranquility-away from crazy crowds. I took a taxi from V Hotel (MRT Lavender) to Changi Ferry terminal. 20 mins, approx SGD20. (Bus #2 from Victoria Rd). I boarded the bumboat for SGD2.50 each way. The little wooden boats don't go to timetable, they just go when they have 12 passengers (full boat). It was a lovely 15 min ride over to Pulau Ubin (Ubin Island). I met my tour guide, Zhiguang right on time at 9.15am. I was amazed I was the only rider, so I had a personal tour guide for my money. Bonus! We went and got our mountain bikes and took off. What a beautiful National Park. Very few residents - those there are still living in traditional style houses.

I absolutely loved peddling around the sealed roads with Zhiguang. He is studying Sports Science at College and we had some great chats about fitness and Singapore in general. He has been coming to Ubin since 2007 so he knows the island really well. I loved peddling on the "blue trail" the easy off road circuit - a bit of gravel, mud and grass, a few lumps and bumps but nothing crazy for a beginner like me. There is also "black diamond" and "double black diamond" trail for the serious riders - but you wont be doing them on this tour (ha ha). I loved riding around and seeing the "Butterfly Hill" (counted 7 varieties of butterfly in just a few minutes), the "Secret Spice Garden", the waterlilly pond, the Shrine to German Girl, the old granite quarry (now a reservoir filled with water forming a beautiful lake) and the amazing views over to Malaysia - I didn't realise it was so close you could swim across. I had a blast! I was so sorry it was over at 1.30pm. I invited Zhiguang to some lunch at one of the local restaurants. I wanted to thank him for the best tour - I enjoyed it HEAPS more than shopping on Orchard Rd!
