Spinneys Dubai 92 Cycle Challenge opens for registration


The race is on as registration is now open for the Spinneys Dubai 92 Cycle Challenge, which returns bigger and better than ever before in February 2022.

Organisers announced on Tuesday that cyclists can now reserve their place for the 92km challenge, taking place on February 18.

Ideal for first-time racers or those with little cycling experience, a short course ride has been reintroduced for 2022, along with a much-elevated post-event race village and hospitality for the riders, friends and family to enjoy. 

Once registered online, the region’s burgeoning cycling community can start planning for their big day.

“Conditions in Dubai in February are usually ideal for cycling, whether you’re a return rider or taking part in your first race. We are constantly trying to evolve our offering and this year; we have made it more attractive to first-timers by offering a shorter course distance,” said Stewart Howison, Race Director.

To help riders get into shape and race condition, a series of Build-Up Rides (BUR) are planned for the purpose-built Al Qudra Cycle Track in Dubai: 

  • BUR 1: 37km on 30 October 2021 
  • BUR 2: 45km on 27 November 2021 
  • BUR 3: 66km on 18 December 2021 
  • BUR 4: 85km on 22 January 2022  

Held in partnership with Spinneys, Dubai 92 and Dubai Sports Council, the Spinneys Dubai 92 Cycle Challenge is one of the Middle East’s premium sporting races, regularly attracting thousands of riders from all over the world.

The event celebrated its 11th anniversary in 2020 with a fully subscribed and limited field taking part in the Build-Up Rides and in the main race. 

The organisers will ensure that the necessary precautions are in place at all Build-Up Rides and the main event to ensure public wellness and a COVID-19 safe environment.

More details will be shared individually with each participant closer to the events.
