RAKBANK Ride is Back!!

The wait is over! Get your cycling gear on and be part of the second edition of one of the most anticipated cycling event in the heart of Ras Al Khaimah – home to many popular routes enjoyed by the wider cycling community of UAE and beyond.

The RAKBANK Ride course will consist of 3 courses;
• 85km course for experienced cyclists
• 30km and 10km courses for fun riders and juniors.

The race has the full support of the RAK Police to ensure safety of the riders and necessary road closures will be in place.

The start / finish point for all the courses will be directly outside the 5 star Double Tree by Hilton Hotel in Al Marjan Island, with the race village being hosted in the Meze / Sanchaya restaurant complex within the hotel ground for participants to register and collect their race packs.

A series of build-up rides will be hosted in advance of the event – further details of the build-up rides will be announced.

Race entrants will be able to enjoy a free post-race buffet reception hosted by race sponsors RAKBANK in the race village, plus the Double Tree by Hilton has arranged for EXCLUSIVE accommodation (for reservations, click on the logos in the left column on the registration page).
