The Iconic Tour de Bintan is back to treat cyclists to a vibrant and festive weekend of cycling in beautiful Bintan. It is an epic cycling challenge for all levels of cyclists and a qualifier for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships 2019.
Race Venue – Bintan Island
The largest island in the Riau Archipelago with almost 3,000 large and small islands, Bintan Island is a popular tourist destination for many of us Singaporeans. Just 1.5 hours ferry ride away from Singapore, the colourful town of Bintan, Tanjung Pinang, used to be a local destination for prostitution and gambling, but after a clamp-down by the local authorities it is regaining its rightful reputation as one of Indonesia’s most historical cities. While the island has retained many of its interesting historic remains in Tanjung Pinang and Penyengat, Bintan also offers plenty opportunities for surfing, adventure, and other options for relaxation and wellness.
Multi-Stage Cycling Challenge across the Island of Bintan
With the rich history and culture behind Bintan Island, this is a good opportunity for you to challenge yourself as a cyclist and yet explore the Bintan Island as a tourist at the same time. Discover the true Indonesia as you ride across the island.
Tour de Bintan has two broad categories – Gran Fondo (for recreational cyclists looking for a new challenge) and Competition (for competitive cyclists), each covering a range of distances. Each course covers nearly half the island, so expect to see plenty of scenery during the race!
