Many people enjoy running as a leisurely activity, a way to keep their body healthy or to prepare for a marathon. In fact, running is one of the easiest and most rewarding exercises to do daily.

However, surprisingly, there are some routes that are regularly used for group cycling, whether they are uphill or flat. Particularly in the weekend and car-free day these streets are filled with cyclists from cycling communities all over Jakarta decked up in state-of-the-art cycling gear.

Cycling communities and clubs are only just starting to emerge in these past few years, given that cycling is quite a new trend for people of Jakarta. The communities usually meet at Sudirman streets or around the National Monument Complex on a car-free day for a group excursion. Some communities are leisurely and take cycling as a recreational activity while some take it seriously and often go for multiple days to ride across the Java island. However, the one thing they have in common is a passion for cycling.

Badminton

Every Indonesian knows how to play badminton. In fact, it is one of the most familiar and popular sports in the country. No wonder, we dominate the game internationally and the players rank amongst the best in the world. The seemingly simple sport only requires easy-to-gather equipment (racket and a shuttlecock), a partner, thus making it a favorite amongst Indonesian. As a group sport, badminton fosters teamwork as well as perseverance and agility. Therefore, it is an ideal team-bonding activity. Badminton is a great way for people to spend time together while working up a sweat.

In Jakarta, like other parts of Indonesia, badminton is a common sport. Hence, the badminton scene in this city is quite diverse. The badminton communities could consist of pro players to total beginners, from old retirees to upcoming young badminton stars, and every other layer of the community. Similar to other sports communities in Jakarta, many badminton communities are playing at Senayan, although there are more exclusive ones that have their own buildings or facilities (e.g. PB Djarum).  

If you are ready to pick up some shuttlecocks, you can join:

Since 2016, Archery has grown into a popular pastime amongst people of Jakarta. The alternative sport teaches not only how to aim at a target but also focus, patience, and control. The deceptively simple sport has attracted many who include them in their lifestyle as a hobby, breaking the stigma that ‘archery is only played by athletes and no one else’. That is one of the reasons why Jakarta’s archery communities are inclusive and open to those who want to know more about the sport, regardless of their age.

The archery community in Jakarta is steadily growing over the years. Therefore, it is on its way to becoming the most diverse sports community in Jakarta, where you will find a group of people from different backgrounds sharing their love for archery.

In short, you can find archery communities practicing in archery ranges all over Greater Jakarta in Senayan, Pulomas, Bekasi, etc.
