PostSubject: Slow and steady Ride de Singapore - 3rd July 2011 Sunday   Thu May 26, 2011 1:29 pm

Hello people,
With my "leisurely ride account" -- http://smallwheelsbigsmile.blogspot.com/2011/05/one-way-ticket-to-kluang-22nd-may-2011.html
there seems to be a lot of comments that lovecycling should also do a long range event which I am not an expert on... anyway.... sooooo here goes.

Interest check on doing a "Ride de Singapore" in a relaxed way... This will not be a supported event, which means we do it "Commando" That the rider will have to bring all the gear/food/water. No support vehicle. We would stop about 40km at some petrol station, food centre(topup water, snacks) ... but short rest and push off. Long range riders, pls chip in with ur comments.

Foldies, MTB, road bike are all welcome. But I hope we can all ride as a group...slow and steady(20-22km).. how what say u?

Date:3rd July, Sunday
Time: 0730, ECP Mac Donalds
Route : From Matt....ECP, ride towards West coast road, Tuas, Woodlands...
Rest points
1 Labrador or west coast park
2 tuas coffee shop
3 coffeeshop after Neo tiew
4 YISHUN coffeeshop
5 punggol coffeeshop
6 cv

pls see this http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/fullscreen/28033072/


Distance: 128km
Pace: 20-22km/h
Others: Bring lights(just in case u take long long time to finish), helmet, money, extra water bottle, deep heat, chap cream, power bars, banannas... Smile

My 2 cents input,

1. 128km is like going from fort road to cv and back 3 times. Min. U need to be able to ride to cv non stop at around 20km/h, take 5 and ride back to fort road non stop.

2. You need to be comfortable cycling on the road.

Other than that it's mind over body! Enjoy.

Speed wise is based on actual average speedometer readout ? 24 km/hr means you'll need to cycle at least 30km/hr consistently and let traffic lights pull your speed down. I'm in but probably max at 100 km..the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. What's the expected total hours ?
