Shimano Cycling World invites visitors in with a kinetic sculpture made with an interconnected system of sprockets, rims and chains. The Cycling World then takes the visitor through the heritage of innovation in cycling. Visitors are also given an understanding of the technical aspects of cycling. There is for example, a bicycle fitting machine to help calibrate correct posture and size for cycling. Cycling World includes several interactive exhibits such as a historical collection of bicycles that visitors can curate based on their interest.

The rapid growth of cycling culture can be attributed to the strength of global cycling communities. Shimano Cycling World will host events and guest speakers at the Surround Stage to give visitors the opportunity to learn from the cycling professionals. Cycling Global and Cycling Singapore will connect visitors with the passionate community of cyclists locally and beyond. This exhibit presents past and future cycling events through interactive digital touchpoints.
