Le Tour de Singapore? Cycling Round the Whole Island



We recently planned and took on the Round Island Route (RIR), also known as the Round The Island, or RTI, of Singapore. While our son, Milo, has been cycling for about 4 years now, our daughter Aspen has just learned. She fell in love with cycling immediately, taking 20km and then 30km, enjoying every minute. She watched le Tour de France, asking questions and declaring that she would one day ride le Tour de France Femmes. So we decided to strike while the iron was hot, plan a little break, and off we went. See below for the pack list and map of our route and stay tuned for a fresh Le Tour de Singapore - coming in July 2023! Do watch our video of the tour for the best look into the experience.
