1. Road Events

There are various types of road cycling events but basically they are a race against the clock that may be solo or in small teams. Courses may run from place to place and/or comprise one or more laps of a circuit and may go from a few kilometers to more than 200km.

  1. Off-Road Events

Riders race one at a time or in small groups due to safety concerns while navigating a particular course. Often referred to as mountain biking, courses can be a mixture of technical sections, climbs, descents, grass, trails, jumps and obstacles that require carrying the bike around/over it. Off-road races are relatively short, fast-paced races from 60 mins or less and may or may not be on a man-made track with various challenges built-in.
