Pedal Ubin! is RECRUITING!

Category : news

From: Airani, Pedal Ubin! Project Manager, Raffles Museum Toddycats!

While the future of Pulau Ubin remains uncertain, development on the fascinating island was put on hold for at least 10 years from January 2002. Right now a group of Raffles Museum volunteer guides have been sharing the stories of Pulau Ubin with the public on bicycle.They call themselves the Pedal Ubin! Jungle Fowls

Join us! Be a Pedal Ubin! guide! Be a Jungle Fowl!

Learn about and share stories about the flora, fauna and heritage of Pulu Ubin; e.g. learn how Ubin got its name, the story of the German girl, about the monk who walked from Thailand, the resident family of hornbills and of the plantations that speak of times long past. And how to handle yourself on a bicycle in Ubin.
