The AUDAX 600km is this weekend and the start time is 3:30am register at 3am on July 4th. NOTE that we will NOT have a support vehicle so you will need to be self-sufficient on the road. There are plenty of stores along the route for drinks so that is not a problem for refuelling. The one chop stop is at Hotel Super Cowboy. Note that many people are pressing right through and not stopping at the hotel but likely to stop for a full meal around that area. If you want to stop for a while there you can book a room upon arrival. Make sure you have your brightest lights and potentially your neon vests if you have them for safety reasons. I believe there will likely be 2 or 3 groups only so try to stick in one of them. There are also a number of people registered from Thailand and a few new names I do not recognize so there will likely be people who don’t know where they are going. Please try to help them out! The route is the same as the 600km as per this link where you can grab the .gpx file. Standard ride registration fee of S$5 for members and S$25 for non-members.

We will register at 3am and roll at 3:30am. Start location is same as usual. The time cutoff is 40 hours.
Start place is the same as usual
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?
Passport and whatever cards you need to cross the border. It is advisable to bring Malaysian Ringgit to buy things from the petrol stations. You should have enough food and water for 100km. Salt tablets are a good idea if you cramp up sometimes. Of course bring tubes, Co2, suntan lotion and your legs! See you on July 4th…..early.
When it is all done you will technically be in taper mode for PBP! 47 Days to go!
