Logistics information

How does my bike travel to Arabia?

The bikes travel by air a few days before the race. So these will be collected in advance in Barcelona, ​​and will be loaded onto planes for transfer, except for those who travel on their own to Saudi Arabia and travel with their bicycle.

The organization makes the “official box” available to the participants (at no extra cost) so that all the bikes occupy the same space, the load is agile and the bicycles are well protected.
The box is made of cardboard and the measurements are 160x90x22cm. The maximum weight allowed for bicycle boxes once loaded is 20kg.

In addition to the bicycle, you can load other items without exceeding the maximum weight allowed. The organization will weigh the boxes before loading the bicycles on the transport planes. In case of exceeding the maximum authorized load, the organization reserves the right to empty the content to reduce its weight to the maximum allowed.

To coordinate the collection of the bicycles in Barcelona, ​​the organization asks the participants to fill out a form in which the preferences of the participants must be indicated. This form will be sent to all participants in the form of an official communication.

When participants arrive in Saudi Arabia on the day of verification, they must collect their bike (as delivered in the box) at the assigned collection point. No material can be left inside the boxes, because they will not be the same ones that will be delivered at the end of the race.
