While many Singaporeans now cycle for leisure, not many use the bicycle as their main commuting option. Synopsis: The Straits Times’ opinion editor Grace Ho takes a hard look at political and social issues of the day with her expert guests.
In this episode, she looks at active mobility, including accidents among drivers, cyclists and pedestrians; Singapore’s active mobility infrastructure; and how to get more Singaporeans to cycle to work.
Coming along for the ride is The Straits Times associate editor Chua Mui Hoong.
