Frequently asked questions

Q?

Is cycling safe in Saudi Arabia?

A.

We are mostly 'guests' in the Kingdom and as such observe and respect local traditions and sensitivities as much as possible. In order to avoid any confrontation we choose safe routes and race/train at the quietest times of the day.

Q?

I don’t have a bike, can I buy one in Riyadh?

A.

There are three possibilities to acquire a bike here in Riyadh:

  1. Go to one of the local stores, its mainly Trek, they sell the low to medium range bikes, but can order the whole range if you are interested. Search for "wheels trek riyadh" in google maps and you will be pointed to the shops.
  2. Buy a bike in one of the international online stores and have it shipped to Saudi. If you are unsure about the online stores, drop us message we will help you.
  3. Check our blog for the category "Private Sales & Wants". You may find a used bike there that suits your needs.

Are you a ‘social’ cycling club and do you organise club runs?

We are a racing club and we do not organize club runs for security reasons.  If you are a non-competitive cyclist you're welcome to enter our races and ride at your own pace. You'll not be alone!

Are you also a triathlon or mountain bike club?

A.

No, we are a road cycling club, but some of our members are also triathletes and mountain bikers. But there is also a tri club in Riyadh, the Riyadh Triathletes. The triathlon season is throughout the summer, April to October with a small overlap with our schedule. But we align our schedules that you can compete in both clubs.
