Cycling is becoming more and more popular in Singapore in the recent years. Some have taken up cycling as a form of exercise including the elderly aged 60 to 84, while others are using it to commute between their homes and transport nodes for work. An increasing number of students have also taken up cycling as their transport to school. There are also various types of cyclists today for example the professional, amateur, sport, commuter and leisure cyclist. Cyclists today, want safer, more efficient routes to cycle. Some have setup websites and blogs to advocate dedicated cycling lanes in Singapore. While the Singapore government does promote cycling as a cleaner and greener way to travel, the limited land in Singapore has made it difficult to incorporate cyclists into the transport network. This causes cyclists to have to share the footpath with pedestrians or the roadway with vehicles.
