The Bike Abu Dhabi Festival is bringing a Gran Fondo to the Emirate!
Starting in the capital city of Abu Dhabi and going all the way to the Garden City of Al Ain, the very first
Bike Abu Dhabi Gran Fondo is a challenging 150km race for our avid cycling community.
With a total prize pool of AED 2,000,000 this Gran Fondo is the highlight of the cycling season.
Participants will be split into different groups. The first group is dedicated to elite men and women (UAE
clubs and teams). The remaining participants will be split based on their average speed. Participants are
free to select from speed pods which best suit their abilities.

The Bike Abu Dhabi Festival is also highlighted by the UCI Urban Cycling World Championships held
alongside Abu Dhabi Corniche at Nation Towers Khalidiya car park, including a village area full of
entertainment for visitors to enjoy.
