Okay, so it might not be a real dinosaur, but if you’ve ever tried going on an adventure in a costume, you know that it’s not so easy. However, waterbikes are another story and they’re great fun for a day out with friends or family exploring nature in Singapore. There’s nothing quite like waterbiking and no, you don’t need to be a dinosaur to hire one.
Whether you’re a fan of the outdoors, a water sports enthusiast, or always up for trying new and fun activities, you should definitely add waterbiking to your plans. And best of all, you don’t even have to get wet to ride the waves.
So, what is waterbiking?
Waterbiking is just like riding a real bike, but on water. The lightweight metal frame is sturdy and mounted on two floats just like a catamaran so all you need to do is pedal, pedal, pedal to glide across the water. You can even hit speeds of 15km/h and zip about for a fun and adventurous workout.
You don’t even have to get wet if you don’t want to on your environmentally-friendly excursion around the Pasir Ris sea area. Waterbiking is so simple that it’s easier than kayaking and just as much fun—if not more.
Where can you waterbike?
You can rent a waterbike for anywhere between one to three hours for a fun Saturday or Sunday out on the water at Pasir Ris Park on Campsite 3. Located on the eastern side of Singapore, the serene park is a great place for kids and families, or to get together with friends. There’s a minimum two-person booking but you won’t have to yell across the sea to your mate as both of you will be given a walkie-talking to keep in contact. You’ll also get a life jacket and a dry bag to keep all of your belongings safe.
Waterbiking is the watersport you’ve never done before in Singapore, so it’s time to give it a go and ride a bike on the water.
