What is the Al Ula Tour?

The AlUla Tour, formerly known as the Saudi Tour, was first held in 2020 and has since become one of the most anticipated events on the international cycling calendar. The race showcases the beauty and diversity of AlUla, a place of extraordinary human and natural heritage, located in the northwest of Saudi Arabia.

Alongside the Saudi Cycling Federation, the Royal Commission for AlUla (RCU) is creating opportunities through cycling across all levels. This includes two mass participation rides alongside the AlUla Tour for juniors and the wider public. RCU has also created environmentally friendly initiatives through local bike tracks, hubs, desert biking tours, mountain biking options, and electric bikes at Hegra.

AlUla is home to ancient civilizations, such as the Nabataeans, who left behind more than 100 rock-cut tombs at Hegra, Saudi Arabia’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site. AlUla also boasts breathtaking natural wonders, such as the Sharaan Nature Reserve, which hosts a variety of wildlife and plants, and the Elephant Rock, a massive sandstone formation that resembles an elephant’s trunk
