It is 300km time again!

This is a PBP qualifier.  Sign up here:  http://www.singaporeaudax.com/?page_id=1185

Once again we have visitors coming from Philippines and Thailand!

The Ride Briefing starts at 5am…show up for the ride briefing and we roll at 5:30am sharp.  The 300km is an amazing ride that takes you over some nice roads to Kluang, Kota Tinggi, Kulai and home.   This will not be as fast as the recent 200km which saw some blazing paces, especially in group one which included Brian and a number of strong riders from the Mavs and Joyriders.   If you have ordered an AUDAX kit, they are here…email me if you would like to collect before the ride at jeff@singaporeaudax.com .

Start Place
Longhouse has been closed- so we are meeting at Starbucks near Novena:

Starbucks at Novena/United Square is open 24 hours, has plenty of seating, and there is a 7-11 there which is also open 24 hours….so this is the closest place that holds lots of bodies and has decent food/drink for early birds.  United Square – 101 Thomson Road #01-01 United Square Singapore 307591


What to bring?
You should bring some Malaysian Ringgit along with your passport. There will be one stop at a Petronas gas station where you may want to fill your bottles and buy some food. Bring your IC and passport to get across the border. In addition, you should bring food/gels/water enough for at least 100km of riding…it is always better to have too much than not enough food and drink. Tubes, pumps, CO2 cartridges are all recommended. Remember that AUDAX rides are self supported…you can still help other people out but you cannot get assistance from people in motor vehicles. Please ensure that you have insurance to cover yourself in case of emergency.
