This is a one-day event. The Urban Wheels Challenge is organized by MediaCorp’s OOH Media, and it is a cycling competition with a challenging course designed to mimic the outdoor terrain in an urban setting.
Building up from last year’s inaugural challenge, this year’s cycling event throwbacks to the basics of mountain biking, engaging and introducing to the public about the sport. In line with this year’s tagline “Make Your Mark”, organiser also aim to encourage first-timers to contribute to the vibrancy for this sport by experiencing the thrills and adrenaline rush of an urban gravity race in the heart of the city.
Organizers were keeping barricades and tidying tents and clearing stocks of free gifts while I watched.
