Setting out for a long ride is different to setting out for a normal weekend loop. This route is a 250 kilometre loop through Johor, Malaysia, starting from Woodlands and ending in Pengerang.
The 3rd edition of the CycoSports Tour de Phuket was run over the weekend of May 09 – 11.
The race consisted of roughly 243 kilometres of racing over 3 stages. With less than 1,000 m of vertical gain on both stages 2 and 3; the race was one for the Puncheurs.
The Kulai loop is a 90 kilometre loop through Malaysia, with very few traffic lights or interruptions. The road surface is generally good and the traffic usually minimal. Being country roads you do get cars and trucks passing each other, but most drivers in Malaysia are very respectful of cyclists.
Everyone loves a good post ride coffee and sometimes finding a good spot for a coffee is difficult when you have a bike with you. I have had the same issues and here are some coffee shops I frequent during or after a ride.
Everesting in Singapore is possibly one of the greatest challenges you could undertake, one which I’m happy to have attempted. At this moment in time it beat me, but I will regroup and re-attempt shortly.
I want to thank anyone who took the time to donate, share, like, comment, join us for a short or long time on Saturday or simply post anything about the attempt. Every single one of you made this attempt a success.
On January 20th 2018 I will attempt to Everest Hendon Road and hope to raise money for Qhubeka and the cycling community in Singapore. By completing this challenge I hope to raise $5,000 for Qhubeka and $5,000 for cycling in Singapore.
The festive season is upon us as the year draws to a close, and what better time to relax, put your feet (and legs) up and reflect on your year of achievements. Now is also the time of year where every cyclist should set some New Years resolutions.
When I started riding cx I quickly found out riding with finger-less gloves dirt, muck and mud would get between my finger, and sometimes work it’s way into the glove. This can be annoying but sometimes becomes uncomfortable and distracting. The 2 solutions I had in mind were, ride without gloves or find some full finger gloves.
Cycling in Singapore during 2015 left many wanting, with no National Time Trial or Road Race held. 2016 saw the return of the National Time Trial, Road Race and a Criterium. An increase in races from nearly 0, to a handful. 2017 saw another couple of races added to the calendar and the inclusion of the Jungle Cross series, albeit not a road series, but racing nonetheless.
