2. Car Parking Arrangements

Driving to the Carnival?

you may do a trans-loading (loading/unloading) at the Event Village.

however given the limited space at the Event Village, no parking is allowed within the event area.

We’ve secure a site about 300 metres away from Lor Asrama for parking, where one may use the offroad area commonly known to mountain bikers as ‘Track 15 /T15’ to park your car for the day. Free parking!

The location is just 50 metres to the right after turning into Mandai Lake Rd.

 

Do note that the car park operational hours (6am to 6pm), so make sure you leave before 6pm on the event day!

4. Hydration, Sunblock

Lor Asrama race course is tough!

Hydration, snacking, sunblock will be key to keeping one going for 8-Hrs.

Enduro-S riders may want to find the right combination for your all-mountain bikes where you can efficiently cover at least 5 laps (45km) of the race so to get ranked.

note: due to the nature of the venue, course profile for the Enduro-S zone will only be available 72hrs before the event, its extended length should give the course an additional 700metres.  (Enduro-S zone approx at KM 2.25 and KM 3.6).

 

5. Get organised

The carnival been a traditionally a gathering for bikers for Singapore.

The team pit atmosphere brings everyone together in the mist of friendly battles on the race course.

Experience it better by getting oneself organised.

here’s a list of stuff riders commonly brings along over the years that we wish to highlight :

  • beach chair
  • hammock
  • air mattress
  • drinks and more drinks.
  • The massage table, the creams, the oil and the Massuer!
  • personal mechanics
  • tons of tubes
  • outdoor shower
  • bike trainer to keep one warm up (not that one will need that after a few hours?)
  • ice cooler

Just remember to trash the consumable and rubbish properly so to keep the place clean, we will be providing trash bags and trash bin around the team pit and in the spirit of great mountain biking citizens, just do your part to trash the items properly.

  • cans and plastic bottles to be crush before throwing
  • food waste to be drain of liquid before trashing
  • recyclables to be placed on the ‘green bins’

6. Re-read the event information site

Before bringing the cheers to the Carnival, read through the event micro-site for event schedules and details.

this will keep you well informed of the race requirements, so to be able to plan ahead.
