Guidelines when setting a run/ride in Singapore’s Nature Reserves and Parks

The abbreviated guidelines below are for your convenience. You must, however, make yourself aware of the detailed set of NParks rules, guidelines and maps pertinent to all Hash Chapters that may be found on this page:

  • Hares must give at least 5 weeks notice to the GM’s if intending to set a run in a Nature Reserve as applications must be submitted to NParks 4 weeks in advance. An editable pdf form for the Central Catchment Nature Reserve is available here, and for the Bukit Timah, Hindhede National Park and Dairy Farm Nature Park here.
  • The GM is responsible for notifying National Parks of an intended run in their Reserves at least 4 weeks in advance. Individual members are not to have contact with National Parks.
  • Contact details for Nparks are:
    • NParks Hotline(24hrs): 1800-471 7300 (Toll-free)
    • Email: nparks_public_affairs@nparks.gov.sg
  • Only paper is allowed at the Nature Reserves. Flour and chalk are not to be used under any circumstances. The exception is Pulau Ubin where paper may NOT be used and must be substituted with sparingly used flour.
  • Paper should be laid conservatively and inconspicuously to the general public.
  • Hares are responsible for clearing up the paper before Noon the next day or the sweeper is to clear up the trail straight away (this is to be done irrespective of where the run is laid).
  • Stick to the existing tracks (i.e. those clearly marked by the Nparks) if you are laying runs in the Nature Reserves. 
  • Strictly NO CHOPPING or CUTTING of plants in the Nature Reserves.
  • No Creating or cutting a new path in the Nature Reserves.
  • No arrows in either chalk or flour to be drawn on the roads or anywhere else in the Nature Reserves.
  • Hares are accountable for their runs and if in the event a fine is imposed, the Hares will have to bear the cost. These fines are significant (up to $5000 and more). Repeat offenses will lead to even heavier fines and result in the ofending Hash Chapter being banned from running/riding in Nature Reserves for 6 months. 
  • Outside the Nature Reserves use flour sparingly only on the ground and not on tree trunks.
  • Labrador Park, Sungei Buloh, Kent Ridge Park and Mount Faber are also managed by the Nparks, so be mindful when setting runs/rides there.
  • Click on the links to get maps of the Macritchie Nature Trails, the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve & Designated Tracks within the Central Nature Reserves.

What does the above mean to the Singapore Bike Hash?

Nparks have a contact for each Hash Chapter in Singapore (in most cases the GM) and will call up any Chapter that breaches any of these rules and will ban the Chapter till the matter is resolved. A warning will also be issued to the Chapter. A fine will be imposed if a second breach is committed. The Hares will have to bear the cost of the fine.

What does the above mean to the Singapore Bike Hash?

  • Hares will need to think even more carefully about their run sites and trails.
  • Hares will need to plan their run well in advance.
  • Sweepers are mandatory – for making sure all runners/riders return safely and for picking up the paper.
  • Late comers to a run may find that there is no trail left to follow as the sweeper will have picked it up.

These guidelines have been agreed on by all Hash Chapters in Singapore in consultation with National Parks. They are the subject of revision as the relationship with NParks evolves. We will keep you updated on any changes. Thanks for your understanding!
Adapted from the LCH3 rules for hashing in National Parks document issued June 2010 and in line with general consensus of all Singapore Hash clubs.

Here is a link to the Parks and Trees Act mentioned in the application forms.

Updated in December 2016.

Where Not to Lay & Marking Your Trails

Please note that you should set your ride with the safety of the riders being paramount. Do not include crossing of major roads unless it is using a pedestrian crossing and avoid entering or traversing HDB blocks or other private condominiums or dwellings. Please also avoid areas that may be under Dengue Fever or Zika Virus alert at the time of your ride. In essence, use your common sense to ensure the ride is as safe, but as enjoyable as possible!

Wherever possible, use white chalk marks on hard surfaces that are sufficiently large and bold enough to be seen readily. Do NOT use chalk or other substances such as flour in areas managed by National Parks! When marking your trails with toilet paper, please use it sparingly. Only toilet paper may be used in areas owned by National Parks with the exception of Pulau Ubin where toilet paper is NOT allowed and flour must be used sparingly.

A designated sweeper must collect all the toilet paper used and dispose of it at the end of the ride.

Do NOT use corn starch, baking flour, talcum powder, or similar substances in areas managed by National Parks or in other areas of vegetation.

It is imperative that the Bike Hash sets an example by being highly environmentally aware; protecting Singapore's ecology while at the same time enjoying it. Please do your bit!

Get yourself a free Rotor Protector!

When travelling, brake rotors need protecting to prevent bending damage. Coo Chi Coo has designed (and patented) a rotor protector that can save you the trouble of either taking the rotors off the wheels, straightening a bent rotor or worse still, having to buy a new rotor. He is offering a free pair of rotor protectors to any SBH Member that requests a set. (I requested one for my move, but he failed to deliver.....). Go to the News & Events page to learn more and try for better luck!

Treat Yourself to an SBH Jersey!

If you would like to buy one of the three SBH Jerseys at the next ride, please email Goes Both Ways with your size and cut (short, long or no sleeves) so that it's ready for you to pick up. However, note that some sizes and cuts may no longer be available. You can see the three designs by clicking on the links: 2012 Red Jersey, 25th Anniversary Jersey (the blue is a bit darker than shown in this image), 500th Ride Jersey.
