Ride brief @ 5am- roll @ 5:30am sharp
Well this weekend is officially a 300km and a 400km with a side order of 200km training. The route we will follow is all the same until we hit the first Petronas station around KM 112 from the starting place. Patrick is likely heading the 200km group back to safety from that point. After that the 300km and the 400km riders will enjoy a festive lunch in the thriving metropolis of Kluang and follow this route below before returning into Singapore. For the 400km crew, we will likely grab dinner on Jalan Kayu…note that Jerry’s BBQ takes too long so Spizza is now the likely spot…there is also Indian prata place and other local stuff to grab. In Singapore we will finish at the start point – see below (and for those doing 400km we will likely grab a beverage to celebrate somewhere)…

Start place is the same as usual
Longhouse has been closed- so we are meeting at Starbucks near Novena:
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
What to bring?
The ride is mostly in Malaysia so bring your passport and PR, EP etc cards to cross the border. Bring some Malaysian Ringgitt for stops along the way and bring enough food and water for at least 100km. There are plenty of petrol stations for re-fueling. Bring some sun block too…last weekend a few people got some pretty bad burns. Of course bring tubes, Co2 cartridges, and make sure your bike is in good condition before this weekend. Last but not least, bring your patience. If we are going to ride together then stronger riders can do more front time or help others out but no surging, no breakaways etc.
