The 7 Emirates wk'ender 

28 - 29 January 2022

Ready for a weekend you will never forget? Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the United Arab Emirates this year with a difference. 

If you are up for our Seven Emirates adventure, but don't fancy tackling it in 24 hours, then we have an option that will be much more up your street. 

Our 400 kilometre route will be split into two days of cycling. We will break up the exercise with a night stay at a local BnB farmhouse, giving you the chance to relax, ease out of your cycling shoes and kick back with a BBQ and awesome company. 

So what's included? We'll tell you...

x4 nutritionally designed meals and hydration for the road - we are partnering with a meal prep company to bring you nutritionally balance meals that will keep your engines fuelled through out the ride. We provide all water as well to keep your bike bottles topped up. 

Guide car with day pack and weekend bag storage Our guide car will chaperone us the entire route (fueled with plenty of gas and coffee) and will carry all day packs and overnight kits.

Support car, first aid and emergency bike maintenance  - We have you covered from end to end with a support car, 3 way radio communication, emergency bike repairs (watch out for those flat tyres) and first aid if needed. Our event is fully insured and licensed.


BnB stay and evening BBQ

we will be arranging stays in an overnight farmhouse-style BnB. Rooms will be split according to gender.  All bedding is taken care of but guests will be required to bring their own towel. Full kit list will be shared prior to event departure.

And of course...The coveted 'The Desert Cycle' cycling jersey.

(Introductory) price: 2,250 AED

Registration closes on 1 November 2021
