When I was in my early 20s, I used to rent mountain bikes to cycle around in Sentosa island. There are some hilly terrains and bicycle paths. The bikes were rented about $4 for an hour. We would rent it for several hours and discover Sentosa Island this way. It was fun.
Bicycles for rent / Tandems that can sit two or more (one child seat fitted)
At the East Coast Beach, you can do the same. There are bicycle kiosks that let beach goers rent bicycles and tandems are also included. Ah Boy and I had tried riding on the tandems before. Tandems are very interesting bikes that has two seats. These bikes are common in areas designated for bike tracks but they are not allowed on our roads. Perhaps it is deemed as dangerous to ride on these.
I thought of getting a tandem during the weekend but the girls argued who should be on the little seat on the tandem. Lea started to cry because she insisted that those seats are meant for little girls like her. Rae started to pull a long face. In the end, Ah Boy and I decided not to ride on them. It may be hard to control a 3 in 1 bicycle. He said he will fix something at the back of the car and bring our own bikes here next time. Ya, and a lot cheaper too. Tandem rentals are $9 per hour at the beach.
Rae and Lea certainly need more play time outdoors. I am hoping they pick up learning the bicycles in two wheels soon. They are riding with the additional supporting wheels on each side of the rear wheel.
