URA CFS - Share the Road Criterium October

Availability: Open for Registration Now


The 29 October URA Car Free Sunday Share the Road initiative promises loads of action and some new events to the calendar.

We have a beginner's women's race which is part of the women's workshop weekend (Sign Up Here). In addition, we are trialling an Inter Institution criterium that allows students (must have a student pass) from educational institutions to compete individually.* And the 3rd race will be a Men's Open Points race.

Note: Due to limited numbers the team concept has been dropped to allow individuals to represent their institutions.

Crit Racing Returns in October!

We are giving the smaller groups a chance to race this month with women's club / elite, beginner women's and an inter institutions race.

Comes join the action or simply volunteer or support - a great morning of racing awaits.



The 1.7km Cecil / Robinson Road circuit will see exciting criterium races in the October edition.  From 6:00am to 7:30am with a half hour public transition to the opening of the official opening of the circuit at 8:00am.

There will be 3 race waves of 10 laps duration each:

1) Inter / Education Institution Team Race* (10 Laps)

Education / Institutions comprise of polytechnics, technical institutes and universities. The race has been changed to an individual criterium where riders will represent their individual institutions. Note - Student Passes will be checked on the morning of the event. The race is open to anyone 16 and over (parental consent for those under 18)

2) Men's Open Points Race (10 Laps)

Points for the top 4 riders on each lap (5,3,2,1 points) with double points on the last lap (10,6,4,2). Note - This is an individual event so there is no limit on team size.

3) Women's Beginner Race (7 Laps)

The Share the Road series highlights the diversity of cyclists in our community and we are looking forward to the community coming down and supporting our local Singapore riders in this exciting event.



Volunteers and Sponsors

These are non-profit events with any excess funds going towards supporting the sharetheroad.sg . We will be asking for the support of the larger cycling community to assist. We really need the support of the community in terms of volunteers as well as sponsors (monetary or product)

While the event is early, the streets are well lighted, so we hope the Singapore cycling community will come down and support / cheer on their fellow riders. It's only through showing that we have a vibrant and sharing cycling scene, will more opportunities come to the competitive cycling scene.

Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q)

Please read the questions carefully and answer honestly. Each rider will be asked to sign-off on a PAR-Q when collecting their individual race chip on the day of the event.



1.    Has your doctor ever said that you have a heart condition and that you should only do physical activity recommended by a doctor?


2.    Do you feel pain in your chest when you do physical activity?


3.    In the past month, have you had chest pain when you were not doing physical activity?


4.    Do you lose your balance because of dizziness or do you ever lose consciousness?


5.    Do you have a bone or joint problem (for example, back, knee or hip) that could be made worse by a change in your physical activity?


6.    Is your doctor currently prescribing drugs (for example, water pills) for your blood pressure or heart condition?


7.    Do you know of any other reason why you should not do physical activity?


If you answered YES to one or more questions:

Consult your doctor by phone or in person BEFORE you start becoming much more physically active or BEFORE you have a fitness appraisal. Tell your doctor about the PAR-Q and which question you answered YES.

  • You may be able to do an activity you want – as long as you start slow and build up gradually. Or you may need to restrict your activities to those which are safe for you. Consults your doctor about the kinds of activities you wish to participate in and follow his/her advice.
  • Find out which community programmes are safe and helpful for you.

If you answered NO honestly to all PAR-Q questions, you can be reasonably sure to:

  • Start becoming much more physically active. Starting slowly and building up gradually is the safest and easiest way to go.
  • Take part in a fitness appraisal. This is excellent for determining your basic fitness so as to plan the best way to live actively. Evaluating your blood pressure is also strongly recommended. For readings above 144/94, consult your doctor before you become more physically active.

Delay becoming much more active:

  • If you are not feeling well because of a temporary illness such as a cold or a fever – wait until you feel better, or
  • If you are or may be pregnant – consult your doctor before you start becoming more active.
