Wheely good fun

Wheely good fun

The OCBC Cycle Singapore is finally here.

And even if you're not cycling in one of the many events that kick off on Friday, there are still plenty of reasons to go down to the venue. The Sports and Lifestyle Expo, which is on for two days, also starts on Friday.

Held on the third floor of the F1 Pit Building, there are over 120 booths offering cycling and lifestyle deals.

Entrance to the expo is free, and you can also pick up product samples, official OCBC cycling apparel, and even go for seminars and talks by cycling experts.

Or explore the Carnival Area, with events and attractions for the whole family to enjoy for the duration of the event until Sunday.

Marvel at BMX stunts and check out the Nintendo Wii cycling simulator. Or try sumo wrestling - in oversized costumes.

Chris Robb, managing director of race organiser Spectrum Worldwide, said: "The Carnival is a massive part of the OCBC Cycle Singapore experience.

"The wide range of activities cater to all ages but the emphasis is on offering young kids the chance to enjoy themselves off their bikes."

Saturday sees balloon artists, a popcorn and candy floss vendor and face painting.

A bouncy castle will provide airborne thrills.

Kids can also try their hand at pedal karting.

If all the activity seems a little too much, chill out at the Riders' Cafe on the ground floor of the Pit Building.

There will be a range of local and western fare on offer from Starbucks, Yum Cha, Saigon Express and Soup Restaurant, to name a few.
