SAFRA Tampines is delighted to collaborate with Bike Store* and bikeslinks.com on the first SAFRA Bike Fair and it hopes that the event will heighten the Club’s offerings to NSmen and their families and enhance its image as a Sports Hub. In addition, SAFRA Tampines also hopes to expose the fairly new SAFRA Cycling Club to cycling enthusiasts as a platform to bond members with the same interest.
Highlights of the SAFRA Bike Fair include an introduction to Bike Fitting and a ‘live’ demonstration of a static bike fit by Fitskuul on Saturday (6th April). Subsequently, a presentation of the more advanced dynamic bike fit which analyses the cyclist’s movement on the bike will happen on Sunday (7th April). Both sessions will happen from 3pm-4pm on the two days. Staff from the bicycle insurance company, First Principal will also be on-site throughout the Bike Fair to give talks on educating cyclists about bicycle insurance .
