Believe it or not, there is still another bike rental kiosk at East Coast Park. You can find it in an unbelievably ulu location at East Coast Park’s Area G. It is so close to Changi Airport that you can see planes coming in on their final approach to land at the airport. This is the closest kiosk to get a bike if you intend to go on an epic ride to Changi Beach Park along the Park Connector Network or explore the surrounding, uncrowded section of East Coast Park.
The Area G kiosk is operated by Lifestyle Recreation, the same company which operates Lifestyle Bike N Skate at East Coast Lagoon. If you rent a bicycle from Lifestyle Bike N Skate, you can return their bike here, or at any of their other kiosks along the Park Connector Networks.
However, one thing to note is that if you intend to come to the bike kiosk at the National Sailing Centre, be sure to call ahead first. According to their website, it is open on both weekdays and weekends. However, it was closed when we visited on a Monday and Tuesday. Must have been a slow day…
