On June 4/5 we will be starting the AUDAX 600km ride at 0330 am on Saturday morning. The reason we do this earlier start is to finish just after lunch Sunday giving people time for their families or to just relax ahead of the new week.

Wow what a ride. Great people and many new faces in the group. For the most part the weather was accommodating until we reached the shores of Singapore and the rain came on down….and hard! Many of the riders were debuting the new AUDAX 2016 kits which was great to see. We rolled at 5;30 AM sharp with the first group arriving at Brewerkz just before 2pm. The rain in Singapore definitely slowed traffic and the riders down. Once again we took the new 200km Patrick Williams route which seemed to be appreciated and enjoyed by most of the riders. While the majority of riders stuck to and finished the route there were a few deviations from the norm on this AUDAX 200km. First time AUDAXer Gogo Sof and his wife (girlfriend, not sure) let the bunch go after a fast start in Singapore. Despite the fact, they managed to ride around in numerous circles in Singapore covering the distance of 200km!
The AUDAX 200km on May 14, 2016 will follow the Patrick Williams Route which is still new and exciting. The last time we did this the front group finished with a 35km/hour average! Of course there were slower groups as there always is. Please remember to bring your passport, EP, PR, or whatever it takes to cross a border as the ride is in Malaysia. It is also advisable to bring some Malaysian Ringgit to buy water or drinks. You should try to have food and energy for at least 65-70km. Sign up here SIGN UP HERE
Here is the route if you want to download the .gpx file for your Garmin.
As usual, we will start at the Starbucks at United Square. The ride briefing will be at 5am and we roll sharply at 0530.
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
Riders have a total of 13 hours to finish the ride which ends at Brewerkz on Riverside Point in Singapore.
New Finish spot
Later I will post the ride registration form to our FB group so people can save time by completing it before they arrive at Starbucks. We will also have some on hand for those who forget or sign up on the spot. The Singapore AUDAX FB page is at FACEBOOK PAGE
In addition to food and water, it is also advisable to bring extra tubes, Co2s, etc in case of punctures. Last but not least, for those who have ordered AUDAX kits, on Wednesday May 11, 2016 we will be at Kit Night at Boomarang from 7-10pm
to distribute the 2016 kits. Boomarang Address: 60 Robertson Quay, #01-15 The Quayside, 238252
