Cycling is a great aerobic activity that is beneficial to not only your physical health but to your mental wellness. It’s also a fantastic activity for the family, allowing you to squeeze in some quality family time whilst clocking in your miles. Bringing your children out on cycling adventures is also a great way to pry technological devices away and get them back in touch with nature. Besides, there’s nothing quite like spending your weekends with your family in the fresh air and with the bright sun gleaming on your face.
Here’s our take on some of the best kid-friendly treks in Singapore to get you started on your family’s biking adventure.
(i) Jurassic Mile Trek (East)

As it is on flat ground, the trek is relatively easy to embark on and would be sure to keep your kids entertained! If you’re craving for a bigger challenge, you can choose to start on your trek at East Coast Park instead of Terminal 4.
- If you’re driving or taking private hire, you can park/drop off at Carpark 4A and walk towards the signs that point to Jurassic Mile.
