TAMPINES ,A CYCLING NEIGHBOURHOOD
A cycling town is a comprehensive network of cycling paths in selected HDB towns.
Cyclists will also be able to use these facilities to access key amenities, such as neighbourhood centres , markets and schools.
When sharing the road with cyclists, expect sudden moves on their part at all times.
When approaching or passing a cyclist, give him/her ample space and be extra alert. Be prepared to slow down or stop.
