Tour de Bintan 2020 – ITT prologue (Singapore)

Dear participants,

Today should have been the first day of the 10th Tour de Bintan seeing you tackle the Individual Time Trial. Unfortunately, we are still working on a date when we can celebrate together. In the meantime, to cheer you up, we have created an ITT that will simulate the Tour de Bintan course: a 16.7km route in the Lim Chu Kang (LCK) area with a rolling terrain.

This challenge is for Singapore-based cyclists. We welcome our international cyclists from Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China, Australia to propose their own course. We will support and share your initiative.

Please see below for details:


Strava link to the segment:

The starting point is at the second traffic light intersection heading north, midway along LCK, just before the bus stop. We suggest starting at the lights, by the intersection. Here’s a street view:,103.697346,3a,75y,24.87h,79.17t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sCbRc6uXY_8yGjHah3k1FWA!2e0!7i16384!8i8192

The end point is on opposite side of the road, 1.3km further north, just past a bus stop. Here is the street view:,103.6998971,3a,75y,184.46h,85.27t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sylv4bHHajYr4XYneiZ6_Gw!2e0!7i16384!8i8192

If in doubt about the finish line, ride back to the traffic lights and intersection of the start point. It’s only another 1.3km and you are sure to complete the segment.


Ride the course between 27 March and 12 April. Your result must be posted on your Strava account by Sunday 12 April.

Note that Saturday 4 April is the Qing Ming Festival, so LCK will be quite busy.


A few pointers and suggestions:

  1. It is an ITT, not a TTT, so please ride as an individual i.e. the full course must be completed alone without any assistance from other cyclists or support vehicles. We count on your sportsmanship to play by the rules.
  2. Flying start is allowed
  3. Time Trial bikes, aero helmets and other aero equipment are allowed (use this chance to bring out your bling 😊)
  4. It’s not a closed road, respect standard traffic rules and be aware of these intersections in particular:
    •  traffic light by entrance to Sungei Gedong Camp, at 3.8km. It’s normally green, but show caution
    • u-turn point at Coastguard, at 6.8km. Ensure you turn at the widened section of road to pick up segment
    • right hand turn from LCK Lane 3 on to Neo Tiew, at 10.7km. Ensure you give way to traffic; they have right of way
    • left hand turn back onto LCK at 13.8km. Ensure give way to traffic, who have right of way

This is a friendly competition. Don’t put your or someone else’s life at risk chasing leaderboard glory.

The results will be announced on Monday 13 April. A Tour de Bintan yellow jersey will be awarded to the fastest Male and Female cyclist.

In light of the current situation please keep respect social distances at the start and the end of the ride in case there are other riders there. The ride itself should take care of itself as it is an ITT.
