The Urban Wheels Challenge, an event organised by MediaCorp's OOH Media, is a cycling competition with a challenging course designed to mimic the outdoor terrain but in an urban setting. This is the second year Mediacorp OOH Media had organised this event.

This year's Urban Wheels Challenge was held at *SCAPE on 17 – 18 September 2016, in the heart of the city. A total of 175 participants and over 3000 spectators turned up for the event.

Building up from last year's inaugural challenge, this year's event throws back to the basics of mountain biking, with bikers riding down mall escalators and stairs, in addition to various obstacles and speed bumps which mimicked the terrain of a mountain biking trail in a safe environment. In line with this year's tagline "Make Your Mark", the event also saw an increase in youth participants contributing to the vibrancy for this sport by experiencing the thrills and adrenaline rush of an urban gravity race.

In addition, spectators enjoyed free mountain bike trials, attractive offers and product demonstration, as well as celebrity meet and greet sessions on both days of the event. There were also live performances from local band KLUTZ, singer Ryan Sufiyan and a cook off demo with Eat List Star finalists. The event also saw support from brands like GoPro, Redbull and Shimano.
