CLUB: FOREKNOW FAT BIKE CLUB SINGAPORE

Fat bikes were once the FAD toy for every occasion – beachfront cruising, cafe crawls, off road trails, sandy stretches, post rain muddy fields. We are seeing fewer of them around lately. Amongst us, there’s still a group of diehard fans for these wide-track rigs. We met the guys from Foreknow Fat Bike Club.

GATHERING ENTHUSIASTS OF A NOW-NICHED SUB-GROUP

Fat bikes were once the FAD toy for every occasion – beachfront cruising, cafe crawls, off road trails, sandy stretches, post rain muddy fields. We are seeing fewer of them around lately. Amongst us, there’s still a group of diehard fans for these wide-track rigs. We met the guys from Foreknow Fat Bike Club.

FOREKNOW FAT BIKE CLUB

Foreknow Fat Bike Club (FFBC) founded in 2020 during the midst of COVID-19, by a pair of the bike owners – Ged Yong and Jason Kwek. There is currently four chapters each helmed by chapter chairpersons of all ethnicities, celebrating the racial harmony of Singapore. 

WIDE REACH

The intention was to create a fat bike club for fellow Foreknow owners spread across Singapore. As of March 2021, the club saw an expansion of members to over 300 riders, with presence in Malaysia, France, United Arab Emirates, Philippines, and even United Kingdom. The members even consist of two elected Members of Parliament of Singapore! 

ACTIVITIES

The club has been conducting gatherings under strict social distancing rules, while continually engaging new members in their passion of upgrading their bikes as a hobby, and also on the sport of cycling to encourage healthy living through exercise. 

CARE INITIATIVE

FFBC also started a FFBC Cares initiative to further encourage fellow members to do charitable work in their communities to benefit the society at large. FFBC Cares has since went for blood donation together, donated bikes and brand new clothes for the needy. FFBC is open to all regardless the member owns a Foreknow.
