Handbrake Requirement for Bicycles

Dear Students

Over the past few years, we have seen an increase in the number of people using bicycles as a mode of transport or for leisure, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic. This may include students who cycle to and from school, or during the weekends with friends and families.

Some students who cycle may be fixie enthusiasts. Fixies, also known as fixed-gear bicycles, generally do not have hand-operated brakes, but instead, rely on the rider’s pedal resistance to stop. This makes it challenging for riders to brake quickly, endangering themselves and other path and road users.
To improve safety, from 1 September 2021, LTA requires that all bicycles ridden on public paths and roads must have at least one functioning handbrake.  Please note so as to promote a safe and gracious riding culture in Singapore. 

Thank you.
