Design Circuit by Naiise


Ditch the 'grams and discover an alternative side of Singapore on your own terms.

This 9 Sep 2017, Naiise is partnering oBike Singapore for Design Circuit, a one-day event that lets you discover our city centre's most creative pit stops on wheels!

Gather your friends and sign-up for Singapore's first design, lifestyle and heritage cycling trail that gives you exclusive access to 10 pit stops, including crowd favourites like Kult Studio, Basheer Graphics and Funan Showsuite, as well as complimentary refreshments from our refuel stop sponsors like Soi 55 and Everything With Fries.

The race will commence and close at Naiise @ orchardgateway (#02-24). Participants will be able to pick up an oBike after registration to kick off their journey for the day.

Be the first ten participants to complete the trail by completing a task at each pit stop and receive a $50 gift card from Naiise, as well as an oBike drawstring bag and 5 free oBike rides worth $25.
