What we all love in cycling is the outdoors, speed, wind, and go beyond its limits. In the last two years have often prevented us from achieving our goals and ride as we wanted. At The Cyclist House, we are full of optimism for 2022 and we offer a series of 10 cyclist events not to miss this year!

You will fight on these climbs and cobbled, you will appreciate the picturesque and winding roads of the Flemish countryside and you will be carried away by the unique atmosphere of "We Ride Flanders".

3. Mallorca 312

4. Bikus dessertus

This 1250 km race allows you to draw your career. Several choices are possible depending on mileage, altitude difference, wind. Everything so you feel like a real explorer, in tribute to the first riders of the Paris / Dakar race of the 80s.

5. Gran Fondo Quebrantahuesosos
When : June 18, 2022
Or : Sabiñanigo, Pyrenees - Spain
Why we love it : For cyclists who are not afraid of the sun or heat, the quebrantahuesos, or the "bone breaker", is perhaps the event you need. Spain's most popular cyclist sports event takes place in the Pyrenees, where time is Clement in summer. The landscape is breathtaking when you browse the 200 km from the course, with four mountain passes crossing two countries (France and Spain). The entrance is limited to a number of cyclists, so you have to be quick to register and be part of the lottery process for places. Like most sports, a shorter 85 km long course is available, called Treparriscos.

6. Maratona Dolomites
When : July 3, 2022
Or : Departure from the villa - arrival in Corvara, Italy.
Why we love it : In terms of distance (138 km), it may not be the longest event, but what seems to be missed in km is largely offset by the altitude. The race takes you to an altitude of 4200 meters. It should be expected when you see the mountain passes that are borrowed on the course. Passo Campolongo, Passo Pordoi, Passo Sella, Passo Gardena, Passo Giau, Passo Valparola and Mür Dl Giat are all here! So get ready to be cut off, not only because of the effort but certainly because of the landscapes.
