“The Ultimate Foldies Challenge”, a new ride category introduced at this year’s OCBC Cycle 2013 to cater to the ever-growing Folding Bike community in Singapore.
The Ultimate Foldies Challenge is a thrilling new ride category at OCBC Cycle Singapore 2013 to cater to the ever-growing Folding Bike community in Singapore.
The Ultimate Foldies Challenge will be staged on Saturday, 27 April, with a series of heats scheduled throughout the day. Each heat will start at the F1 Pit Building, where cyclists will place their folded bicycles within a designated ‘Unfolding Zone’. Once the heat is flagged off, the cyclists will proceed to the ‘Unfolding Zone’, unfold their bikes and push them through to the ‘Mounting Zone’ from where they can jump on their bicycles and ride.
Participants in each of The Ultimate Foldies Challenge heats will ride along a special 2.5km route for 30 minutes. At the end of each 30-minute heat, participants will have their total number of completed laps recorded, as well as the time taken to complete those laps.
A leader board will be constantly updated after each heat, with live results broadcast on the large outdoor screen at the F1 Pit Building. Following the final heat, the 60 Foldies who have completed the highest number of laps will move through to the afternoon’s Grand Final. In the case of riders who are tied for the same number of laps accumulated, they will be ranked according to the time taken to complete the laps.
The Grand Final will follow the same format as the heats, before the three fastest male and female Foldies emerge at the end of the 30 minutes to win a range of cash prizes amounting to SGD1200. A VIP judging panel will also be on hand to award a range of prizes to the best dressed Foldies throughout the day.
For Foldies also looking for a longer ride at OCBC Cycle Singapore 2013, registration remains open for The Foldies Community Ride (24km), which will flag off at 07.30am on Sunday, 28 April.
A range of special registration deals are currently available.
