Saturday October 20th is the last set of AUDAX brevets for the 2018 season. The season for AUDAX is November 1- October 31st every year. The new calendar for the PBP qualifying year of 2019 will be updated later today and a new section will be added below the 2019 calendar will be added with all of the 2018 results. (You may need them for early registration for PBP).
On October 20th there will be an AUDAX 200km and an AUDAX 300km ride. Both rides the registration starts at 4am and we roll at 4:30am sharp from the Starbucks at United Square.
You can sign up for the rides here
Note rides are S$5 for members and S$25 for non members. If you signed up for 2018 or early for 2019 you are a member. If you want to sign up for 2019 you can sign up here
As per usual riders will have 13.5 hours to complete the AUDAX 200km or 20 hours to complete the 300km distance. All riders must start and register at United Square Starbucks however you can finish where you like when you have completed the distance of the brevet you signed up for. This provides flexibility for Malaysia based riders to avoid having to cross the border again when finishing and also provides flexibility for Singapore-based riders to go directly home usually.
What to bring?
The ride is mostly in the Malaysia so it is necessary to bring whatever documentation you need to cross the border into Malaysia (EP, PR, Passport, etc). You should also bring some Malaysia Ringgit as you can buy drinks and snacks along the way for both the 200 and 300km routes. The 300km route has a nice place to stop for an early lunch called Kluang. There are plenty of food choices there and by that time you have already completed 160km of the 300km. Ideally you should bring two full water bottles and food to cover you for up to 100km.
You should also bring spare tubes, co2s, tools, potentially a tire between a few riders, suntan lotion and whatever else you would normally bring on a long ride. It is a good idea to make sure everything on your bike it tightened and that your tires are in good condition for the ride. The roads in Kulai are really bad.
Ride at a pace you feel comfortable with. There are plenty of hills on the 300km and you hit the Kulai hills at approximately 140km on the 200km routes. Note if things really go wrong you can use the Grap App to get a car almost anywhere along both routes. You may need to wait a while but it is a nice option to have.
When you are finished the ride please email the results to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also ensure you send the ELAPSED TIME which is easy if you send the Strava link.
