[2021 Cheat Sheet] Cost Guide On Bicycle Rentals (ECP, WCP, Sentosa, Coney Island/Punggol & Changi Beach Park)

Cycle all around Singapore with these bicycle rentals


Under the Singapore Green Plan, Singapore’s cycling network will be tripled from the current 460 km to 1,320 km by 2030. This is great news for cycling enthusiasts. With the resurgence of cycling popularity in tandem with the fall of the bicycle-sharing industry, those of us who don’t own a bicycle or don’t want to lug one around will have to revert to the old-school method of renting bicycles.

Here is a guide to the bicycle rental stores in East Coast Park (ECP), West Coast Park (WCP), Sentosa, Coney Island (Punggol) and Changi Beach Park.

Things To Consider When Renting A Bicycle

For those of us used to bicycle-sharing, we may have forgotten how and where to rent bicycles. While it may be intuitive to just go with the nearest or the first bicycle rental store we chance upon, that may not be the most optimal choice.

When choosing bicycle rental shops, do take note of the location, timing of rental, types of bicycles, late charges, and overnight charges. These factors can help us to avoid queues and unnecessary expenses. For late charges, most bicycle stores tend to charge for the full hour upon being late past 10 minutes.

A tip for island-wide cycling, renting from Gocycling could be an option. With about 10 outlets island-wide, it is possible to rent and return bicycles at any Gocycling outlets with a $50 cash deposit (returned upon bike collection).

East Coast Park Bicycle Rental

“East side is best side”. Arguably the most popular location for cycling in Singapore, East Coast Park (ECP) is the weekend destination for social gatherings. While the park is huge, spanning over 15km with multiple car park locations, finding the right spot to rent bicycles could be challenging.

Listed below are the 4 bicycle rental stores we can rent from at East Coast Park. GoCycling at carpark C4 is the most popular bicycle rental store in ECP as it is located near Marina Cove – a popular family outing destination.
