  • What if I want to ride with a friend or my cycling group in the same pod?

    You must make sure you all enter the SAME NAME or CLUB NAME so that we can identify you as wanting to ride together. However, you must also ALL submit the SAME avg speed that you aim to ride at. If you do not, we will assign ALL the riders to the SLOWEST speed that was submitted by any of your riders. Once speed pods are assigned, no changes can be made.

  • What if I aim to get faster after training, but want to register now?

    Please enter the speed you are riding at now and anywhere up to 7 days from the registration closing date, you can go back into your account and change your average speed.

  • Is my return bus included in my Entry Fee?

    No, you must purchase this from the STORE for an additional cost.

  • Can I buy a Bus Transportation option?

    You have the option to purchase a return bus trip with your bike, back to Sharjah. You will find this option in the STORE at an extra cost. The return bus will depart from the hotel at approx. between 17:30-18:00hrs back to Sharjah. If you booked the bus and bike transfer, you must pack your bike using the provided packing material and then stow your bike in the luggage compartment of the coach upon arrival into the finish and collect your receipt. This receipt indicates the bus you should travel on, along with your bike. Multiple buses will all leave at the same time with your bikes on board, so if you want to arrive with your bike, please make sure you are on the same bus. Depending on traffic which can be very heavy in Sharjah please allow 2.5 - 4 hours for the journey. You and your bike will be safely and securely transported back to the start point. The drop point will be at the same point you started (Sharjah Lagoons Car Park), with no stops along the way.

  • What are Speed Pods & how do 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.

    Yes, your 5-star luxury BBQ buffet is included for you, the rider, as part of your Entry Fee.
