The ride is the same as the 200km route for the first 110km until you arrive at the Shell Station. After that, things are different. Instead of heading in the direction of Singapore you make your way towards Kluang. It is approximately 50km of nice rolling roads and usually an ideal time to take a power bar or something that will get you safely to lunch. Kluang has many places to eat and usually, you should arrive there at KM 160 (depending on where you started your bike computer. After lunch, you make your way towards the Kulai hills which you normally hit around KM 240. Applying the Dan Langlois rule, you can finish where you like in Singapore and send the ELAPSED time to firstname.lastname@example.org. You have up to 20 hours to do this ride and that should be plenty of time.
What to bring?
Bring your passport, EP, PR or whatever it takes to get across the border in a timely fashion. It is also a good idea to bring some Malaysian Ringgit and a phone that is equipped with the Grab App! (only in case of blowups). There are plenty of places to stop and get water along the way and you should bring enough food/energy to be able to ride at least 100km. You should always have good quality tires on your bike as the roads in Malaysia are not as smooth as they are in Singapore. Spare tubes, co2, spare chain link and other things needed to fix your bike in Malaysia are advisable.
When you get to this arch you are approximately 10km to the Shell station!
