In collaboration with Dubai Roadsters, this unique, non-competitive cycle challenge takes you east from the coastal Sharjah lagoons, through the stunning Hajar Mountains across to the east coast of Kalba and then north all the way to Fujairah and your final destination, Le Meridien Al Aqah – the route stretches 200km with approx 1300m of elevation along smooth tarmac roads, winding through dunes, over mountain climbs and along the beautiful east coast highway to the finish where you can enjoy the fine sandy beaches of Fujairah.
With the 'new' abridged Coast to Coast you can now experience the full essence of the event but just ride 140km and then we will bus you to your BBQ at the Le Meridien Al Aqah.

The iconic Urban-Ultra Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge starts from Sharjah Mamzar Lagoons (25°18’35.05”N 55°21’10.52”E) promptly at 06:00hrs on Friday 16th November 2018. There is ample parking space and you can approach and park, on the Dubai Mamzar side or the Sharjah side. Please download the Rider Guide pdf for updated information and maps.

SPEED PODS AND HOW THEY WORK
A ‘speed pod’ is a group of riders riding at a designated speed. The ‘pods’ will be organised based on the km speed you have estimated you will average and have submitted on your registration, so please be honest. Each rider pod (max 45 riders) will start out approx 2 mins apart. Participants wishing to ride in the same ‘pod’ we will do our best to accommodate you, but please ensure you fill in the same TEAM name for each rider on registration, and understand that you must all cycle at the same pace/speed. If you are registered as a lower/higher speed than the majority of the other team members, you will be assigned a speed pod according to your registered speed.
