Bukit Timah Trail Maintenance Project

Category : events

Ever biked at Bukit Timah and wondered how that precious trail is kept in good shape? Well, regular trail maintenance carried out by the good folk at the National Parks Board. To supplement this, a bunch of mountain bike enthusiasts are reviving a trail maintenance session this Saturday, 6th March 2004.

"Pitch In, Ruts Out, Patch 'em Up and Come on Down!!!"

This non-profit project is organised by the Singapore Amateur Cycling Association (SACA) and the National Parks Board (NParks) and supported by Togoparts.com and Singapore Mountain Bike Forum (SMBF).

Sign up to enjoy a morning with fellow mountain bikers and discuss trail design as well! Just send your name, email and contact number to Ling, Enoch or Chi at the Trail Maintenance Webpage.

You can read more here.
