AUDAX 300km Route   – you can download the .GPX file here if you don’t know the route.

What to Bring

You need your passport, EP, PR cards and anything it takes to cross the border into Malaysia.  It is good to bring some Malaysian Ringgit to buy things along the way.  This ride will follow the new AUDAX 300km route for 2016/17.  The first 108km is the same as the 200km but then we head north into the thriving metropolis of Kluang.  At KM 160 we will be in Kluang where you can get a proper lunch before pressing on.  There are plenty of petrol stations to refill water.

Your Bike

Tighten everything up and bring tubes and tires.  If you get a puncture yell loud and throw your arm in the air…nice people will stop and help you.

Pace

If you arrive at KM108 and you feel tired then you should slow down…the reason why is the next 50km to lunch is hilly and hard.  After lunch you will have a nice flattish 75km until you hit the famous J94 rollers before tackling the Kulai Hills at KM 240.  Ride within your own pace….you have a total of 20  hours to complete the ride.  If you do not go to Brewerkz but do 300km then send your timing to me on Sunday.

Ride safe and see you all next weekend!
