We have a new start location and time for the event. The Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge will now start from Sharjah Mamzar Lagoons (25°18’35.05”N 55°21’10.52”E) promptly at 06:00hrs on Friday 18th November 2016.  There is ample parking space and you can approach and park, on the Dubai Mamzar side or the Sharjah side.

In collaboration with Dubai Roadsters, this unique, non-competitive cycle challenge takes you east from the coastal Sharjah lagoons, through the stunning Hajar Mountains across to the east coast of Kalba and then north all the way to Fujairah and your final destination, Le Meridien Al Aqah – the route stretches 200km with approx 1300m of elevation along smooth tarmac roads, winding through dunes, over mountain climbs and along the beautiful east coast highway to the finish where you can enjoy the fine sandy beaches of Fujairah.
