Details

Details

The 1.7km Cecil / Robinson Road circuit will see exciting criterium races 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. Each event, we try to provide a racing format for various sections of the racing / cycling community.

 

Volunteers and Sponsors

While the roads are closed during this time, there are many pedestrians around the area. Because of the large number of intersections, we will be asking for the support of the larger cycling community to assist. 

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.
