      OCBC Cycle 2018 is an event like no other. Here are 9 reasons why!


      1. Have fun riding on roads that are closed to cars, trucks, vans, lorries, buses and PMDs just for you!
      2. Enjoy Singapore’s beautiful scenes as you ride on closed roads.
      3. Take Instagram-worthy selfies along the closed roads without committing a traffic offence.
      4. Enjoy lots of discounts – Loyal Cyclist Discount, discount on the ST Run, OCBC Credit Card discount.
      5. Enjoy gifts in your event pack – free rides on Mobikes till 31 Dec 2018, NETS Flashpay card with a stored S$2 value (which can be used at NTUC Fair Price, Old Chang Kee, Cheers and more), shopping vouchers from Robinsons, Polar and Timbuk2. You receive an event pack worth more than S$200.
      6. Take the second medal of a trilogy medal design and be one step closer to completing the unique OCBC Cycle ‘Gear’ finisher medal.
      7. Bond with friends and families while keeping fit together.
      8. Have fun riding on closed roads even if you don’t own a bike. Get a Mobike – without paying a rental fee.
      9. Want to ride against the other companies with your colleagues? The inaugural OCBC Cycle Corporate Chase will allow corporate teams to ride against each other in the first starting wave of The Sportive Ride (42km) for the prize money, trophy, exclusive OCBC Cycle Corporate Chase tee and, more importantly, bragging rights amongst your peers!
    • OCBC Cycle to offer Mobikes for rental

      Engineer Aung Khine Phyo is looking forward to turning up without a bicycle for this year's OCBC Cycle.

      Instead, the 32-year-old will rely on one of 2,000 rental bicycles offered by Mobike, following a partnership between the bike-sharing firm and OCBC Cycle organisers.

      "I took part in last year's Straits Times Ride (23km) and it's about 10km from my home (in Tiong Bahru) to the Sports Hub, so I want to save some of my energy," Aung told The Straits Times.

      "I also saw some people riding on Mobikes during last year's race, and now that Mobike has bicycles with gears, it'll be more convenient for cyclists."

      The rental service is free for participants who create Mobike accounts and sign up for the May 5-6 OCBC Cycle.

      Student Niam Xing Rong, who was first in line at the event launch yesterday at Orchard Gateway and received a registration gift bag worth $758, said he would consider using a Mobike for the 42km Sportive Ride.

      "When we cycle on our own bicycles there, it can be a bit of a hassle looking after the bikes before and after the event," added the 24-year-old, who had queued since 10pm on Sunday.

      OCBC Bank's head of group communications Koh Ching Ching noted that bike-sharing is something that Singaporeans are familiar with and, while more people are cycling here, not many people own a bicycle.

      "We've received feedback from participants who are less serious riders that they find it a bit challenging to bring their bicycles to the venue so with the Mobike partnership, it's very convenient," she said.

      "For an event like the OCBC Cycle, which is on closed roads and where cyclists can enjoy the scenic spots along the route, it's really quite rare to come by and, if you don't have a bicycle and as a result are not able to take part, I think that's a pity."

      A new corporate category called The Corporate Chase has also been added.

      Companies can sign up a team of four employees to ride in the flag-off wave in the 42km Sportive Ride.

      The team with the fastest combined net time upon completion will win the title.

      The 42km Sportive Ride, 23km Straits Times Ride, Mighty Savers Kids Rides for families and children, and the OCBC Cycle Speedway South-east Asia and Club Championships will form this year's edition. The event is also partnering The Straits Times Run.

      Participants of this year's OCBC Cycle enjoy a five per cent discount off registration fees for the Sept 23 ST Run.

      Online registration for the OCBC Cycle is now open at 
ocbccycle.com with early bird discounts until Feb 28.
