Cycling Events

Bike races are rapidly growing in popularity. The cycling industry is booming and new, exciting events are mushrooming on the global map every day. If you don’t have a bike yet, get one soon, join the trend, and add to over 1 billion bicycles around the world.

Race bicycles across the globe

There is a large variety of bike races, from time trials that can take less than 30 minutes, through 1-2 hour criteriums, one day road races, and multi-stage events that span over a few weeks. The shorter events require power and muscular endurance. The longer ones favour versatility, cardio endurance and often climbing or bike handling skills.

Many popular cycling events are not-competitive or semi-competitive, allowing riders to decide if they want to participate for social reasons, to compete or both. Those include cyclosportives, centuries (100 miles) or metric centuries (100 km), Gran Fondo rides (120 km or more), randonneuring events also known as brevets or audax rides (200 km or more) or even bikepacking events that take place over a few days or weeks and require participants to carry all their gear (food, clothes, tent, etc.) on the bike.

Cycling brings together like-minded people from across the world. The sport’s popularity means that anytime you travel to a cycling event, you’re almost guaranteed to make new friends. It’s a great way to see the world.

Whether you’re looking for a local cycle race to introduce you to the thrill of the sport or a more testing trial combined with travel, our cycling calendar has something for you.
