AUDAX 600km – 2015 – back in Singapore

Below is the tentative schedule for Singapore AUDAX 2017.  Sure it is early but with many people talking about London – Edinburgh – London 2017 it was designed to enable suitable training.  This calendar has also been checked against 2017 public holidays in Singapore and avoids them as much as possible.

Blazing Hot & Fast 300km

Having been spoiled lately with cool and overcast weather we were reminded of the challenges that can exist when riding in Malaysia yesterday.  Depending on who you asked, it was either 36 or 38.5 degrees Celsius, but no matter who you asked everybody said it was hot!  As per usual we pushed off from Starbucks at 530am and headed to the border where we met Patrick Williams and his group who were doing a 2ookm ride.   This 300km ride had many ‘300km rookies’ who had yet to test the distance so for many of the riders they would be propelling themselves into new cycling territories.  Yesterday proved to be a challenging and interesting ride that had a good amount of fun, pain and suffering.

Happy at the start, the pain and suffering to come later…

AUDAX 300km AUG 20

fixing flats

Tired of riding in Singapore? It is that time again…AUDAX 300km.  Once again we will be taking the new 2016 Patrick Williams Route.  The New 300km route for 2016

Start Place
As usual, we will start at the Starbucks at United Square. The ride briefing will be at 5am and we roll sharply at 0530.  The ride must be completed within the 20 hour time limit to qualify for homologation.

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

The ride will end at Brewerkz at Riverside Point.

There are a variety of places to eat lunch at KM 160 in Kluang.    Remember to bring your passport, EP, PR, or whatever it takes to cross the border into Malaysia.  Also bring Ringgit for drinks and food along the way.  It is best to wear sunblock and bring plenty of nutrition.
