Time for a change to your Saturday Ride?
Emirates Road Cycling Club, in conjunction with Trek, aim to hold a monthly Team Time Trial around the 49 km loop of the Dubai Cycle Course, to be held on the 3rd Saturday morning of the month. The event is purely to provide a safe event where you can push yourself a little harder than a normal Saturday morning.
Any cyclist can take part, you do not have to be a member of ERCC. We hope to have digital timing, and request you make a 'one-off' purchase of the "nobi soft=tie for AED 20. (These can be left on the seat post and reused many times.)

New for 2016A new initiative for 2016, will be the added bonus of prizes at the monthly event. The idea is that small gift donations will be awarded on a monthly basis to one of the competing teams. You do not need to win the event to win the prize! There will be a 'lottery' system to select the day's winner of the prize. At the conclusion of the event, a 'lottery ball' will be spun; the selected number by finishing position will be the recipient of the 'monthly prize'.
The concept is that; 'participation is more important than winning'; everyone who takes part, stands a chance of taking home the monthly prize.
Start/Finish ProcedureCollect your timing tag from the registration desk near the Trek shop.
The Start/Finish location has again changed slightly due to the new entrance road.
PLEASE PLEASE, once you have attached your timing tag, DO NOT, pass through the start/finish gate until your actual start time. Ride towards the Mosque and back for your "warm-up".
Start list and TimesTo be published (usually a couple of days before the event).
Next event, 16th September 2017, start at 06:00.
