Enter as an individual and join hundreds of riders from across the globe to live the cycling adventure of a lifetime. As the event is timed and ranked you will be part of the solo classifications.

Places will be reserved on a first come first served basis, with confirmation upon completion of the entry form and receipt of your payment via our online credit card payments system.

Sign up as a Duo (team of two cyclists).

Riders registering as a Duo will not be included in the individual standings; Duo teams will be ranked in a separate classification (Male Duo, Female Duo, Mixed Duo). The Duo rankings will be established based on the time of the second member of each Duo team to cross the finish line every day.

If entering as a Duo, you do not need to sign up at the same time. The first rider to sign up creates the team by clicking on “Sign up a team now” on the registration form, and the second can join it by clicking “Join Team”.

Don’t be caught on the wrong side of town—take advantage of our research and negotiations!
