Cycling has become more and more popular in Singapore for different reasons. The result is that the demand for bicycles in Singapore has grown exponentially. To respond to the people’s needs, Vimo Services is providing Bicycle Transport in Singapore. Keep on reading to find out anything about Vimo Services Bicycle Transport Service in Singapore.
Why has cycling become more popular in Singapore?
We can identify three main reasons why more and more people are choosing bicycles as their means of transport for commuting, running errands, doing sports, or relaxing during a rest day. Such reasons correspond to the main benefits of cycling, and we thought it was important to share them so that they can work in everyone’s favor.
1. Environment awareness
People all around the world are becoming more aware of environmental issues. Nobody ignores how our planet is facing an environmental challenge and how our traditional motorized means of transport contribute to pollution. Bicycles are environmental-friendly means of transport and a sustainable alternative to cars, buses, and other polluting vehicles.
2. Health benefits
Cycling is a healthy activity. Many of us spend too much time sitting on a desk chair or on a couch. Cycling to work every morning, or going for a Sunday ride every weekend is one of the healthiest habits you can have. It’s good for your weight, your heart, your blood pressure, your blood sugar levels, and your mood. It’s known that when we exercise our body released endorphins, a hormone that makes us feel happy and satisfied.
Covid-19 has changed our habits. It has had many negative effects on our lives, but, being forced at home or out of work, people have rediscovered good old habits. Cycling is one of these. Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, people in Singapore have turned to cycling as a family outing or as a mode of transport. Streets were emptier of cars and crowded with bicycles!
As we’re on our way to coming out of the pandemic, bikers are trying to maintain the good habits they’ve accomplished in the meantime.
Vimo Services Bicycle Transport
With the service, Vimo Services provides, we wanted to overcome a limit of bicycle usage: sometimes you can’t reach a destination riding because it’s just too far away; sometimes, you’re caught by the rain; sometimes, you can’t bring your bike with you when you travel so you don’t have it and that’s why you don’t cycle.
Vimo Services is providing a Bicycle Transport service so that, wherever you are, a driver can pick you and your bike up and drive you and your bike to any destination. A full range of new possibilities opens for you!
You can ride to any destination and start visiting the town on your bike. You can go for a long ride without worrying that you may be caught by the rain, or that you don’t know how to come back. Is it getting dark? Book a Vimo Services Bicycle Transport to go back safely to your home or hotel.
How does Bicycle Transport work?
When you book a bicycle transport vehicle and driver with Vimo Services, a maxi cab vehicle will come and pick you up. It means that the same vehicle, with enough room for your bikes and enough seats for every passenger, will carry you anywhere you need.
This is how Vimo Services can optimize their prices and rates: there won’t be two vehicles needed for the transportation so that you can always have your bikes with you, protected by the sun and rain, and you don’t need to spend a double amount of money for what Vimo Services can offer at fair prices.
The Vimo Services bicycle transport vehicles can transport a maximum of 4 people + 4 bikes: only in the case that you have a larger group of people, you’ll need to book two - or more - vehicles.
Bicycle Transport Pricing
The price for 1 vehicle booked with bicycle transportation can vary depending on the distance it’ll need to cover. It goes from a minimum of $30 to a maximum of $60. When you travel with family or friends this is extremely advantageous because you can split the money or optimize the expense.
