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

Please note the following guidelines:
  • 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.
  • Only toilet paper is allowed at the Nature Reserves. Flour and chalk are not to be used under any circumstances.
  • Paper should be laid conservatively and inconspicuously to the general public.
  • Hares are responsible for clearing up the paper by the next day or the sweeper is to clear up the trail (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 of plants in the Nature Reserves.
  • No Creating or cutting a new path in the Nature Reserves.
  • No arrows 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 $500). Repeat offenses will lead to even heavier fines and result in that Hash Chapter being banned from running/riding in Nature Reserves for 6 months. 
  • Outside the Nature Reserves use flour 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 will become increasingly important – 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.
  • There is a need to consider alternative markings for the runs that can be easily removed.
  • e.g. ice cream sticks, or plastic markers. This is currently being looked at.
  • As a measure of goodwill and community service, we will hold a cleaning campaign in one of the Reserves or Parks at some stage during the year. 

These guidelines have been agreed on by all Hash Chapters in Singapore in consultation with National Parks. 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.

Marking Your Trails

Wherever possible, use 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 owned 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.

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

Do NOT use corn starch, baking flour, talcum powder, or similar substances in areas owned 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!
