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.
