Safe Cycling - OCBC Cycle

Safe Cycling

Your safety is important to us. We have compiled a handy list of safety tips:

  • Wear a helmet
  • Keep left when cycling
  • Obey traffic rules
  • Ensure that the front and back lights of your bicycle are working well
  • Refer to this advisory by Singapore Cycling Federation

Note: While you do not need to wear a mask when engaging in strenuous exercise such as cycling, you must put the mask back on once your ride is completed. You also need to wear a mask before the ride. Please do NOT use your smartphone or other device while cycling. Take selfies only when you are stationary.

Safe Cycling

At OCBC Cycle, your safety is of the utmost importance to us. We are committed to ensuring that you have the best cycling experience. Every factor is considered. From the optimal number of cyclists allowed on the roads to the printing of the emergency hotline on bibs, these safety measures are in place so you can cycle without worries at OCBC Cycle 2020.

To ensure that we start each ride promptly and open all the public roads on time, we ask that participants come an hour before the official start time of the ride. Participants are to refer to their bib pack for the exact reporting time. One of the key reasons for this extra hour is to allow for security checks to be conducted. While additional security checks could result in a longer waiting time, the crew will work towards keeping it to no more than an hour.

Here are some of the safety measures in place:

  • Participation will be capped at 7,000 to reduce congestion
  • Taller and bigger cones will be used for better visibility on the route
  • Route marshals will be equipped with light sticks for better visibility
  • More paramedics and route marshals will be deployed
  • The event’s emergency hotline number will be printed on every participant’s bib, helmet stickers and bike tag for reference
  • Safety signs will be prominently displayed along the route
  • Selfie Points will be designated on the route for photo-taking
  • Additional security checks will be carried out
