C2P Riders – Chiang Mai – Phuket March 25 2017
These familiar AUDAX faces will be gearing up for a big ride from Chiang Mai Thailand to Phuket Thailand. The ride is approximately 1600 km and the riders plan on doing it in six grueling days. Each day the plan is to cover 250-300km per day. The ride, the VisionQuest1500, will be raising money for A New Vision, an organization that prevents curable blindness by enabling cataract operations across Southeast Asia. If you are in a position to give, please support our goal of raising $10,000 to support A New Vision. NO donation is too small!

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. 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.
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.
There are many of the C-P people going so there will be a nice paced group. 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.
History of Singapore AUDAX 300km
The photo above is one of the best memories and pictures of Singapore AUDAX. It has Singapore AUDAX founder Jean-Francois Torrelle, Brian Johnsen, Lundy, Gareth, Barry, Peter and Jeff Kennedy…all the people who rode most of the AUDAX rides. The photo was taken by another AUDAX original…Denise Silk. This tin shed provided us some cover from a massive downpour. The nice family who owned it made us tea to keep us warm. It was a ride that created strong partnership and created great friendships.
