Top 8 cycling routes on a foldable bicycle in Singapore cover image (3)

MOBOT is known for its wide range of foldable bicycles and our convenient after sales service locations. One of the key reasons why MOBOT’s customers prefer foldable bicycles is its ability to fold. This made transportation a very seamless process for the riders.

If you are wondering how we transport our foldable bicycles for outdoor photoshoot, we did it via public transport. We simply just fold and push it into train stations. Not on any occasion do we find it a hassle or inconvenience to others. There were times where some passengers asked us where we purchased these foldable bicycles. Some of our curious #happymobotcustomers also asked us to recommend nice cycling routes.

So here are MOBOT’s top 8 cycling routes on a foldable bicycle you can ride for the weekends with instructions on how to get there via public transport or any other mode of transportation.
