Are you ready to transform your cycling experience and ride with professional cyclists? Imagine pedaling through breathtaking landscapes, absorbing wisdom from the world's top cyclists, and diving into a world where ancient heritage meets modern luxury. Welcome to the Pro/Am AlUla camp – an exclusive gateway to an epic cycling adventure that combines professional insights, cultural richness, and unparalleled scenic beauty.

Join us for an unparalleled cycling experience in the heart of Saudi Arabia's breathtaking desert landscape – Pro/Am AlUla Camp. This is more than just a training camp; it's a unique opportunity to ride alongside some of the world's best cyclists in the middle of their season.

Learn from the Pros and engage with top riders like Simon Yates and Dylan Groenewegen as they share their journey, racing strategies, bike maintenance tips, and honest experiences. Get an up-close and personal insight into their lives beyond the race track. Hear their intriguing race anecdotes, understand their personal aspirations and challenges, and gain a unique perspective on the world of professional cycling.

Tailored riding experience as we offer two riding options to match your pace. Choose between a relaxed 50km loop with an easy escort back to the hotel, or challenge yourself with a 100km route. Both courses are meticulously designed to pass through AlUla's iconic heritage sites, offering a scenic backdrop to your ride.

Before setting off, enjoy a special moment with the riders, complete with photo opportunities and a presentation of a bespoke “race gift pack” from Team Jayco AlUla. Dive into a variety of health topics, from medical and physical health to stretching and exercise routines, achieving mind/body balance, and crucial bike fitting considerations. These workshops will be led by the knowledgeable team, encompassing not just the riders but also the team's General Manager, nutritionist, physical therapist, and mechanic, each bringing their diverse expertise to enrich your experience.

Located in the Medina province, AlUla is not just a city of immense historical significance but also Saudi Arabia's cycling capital. Famous for the AlUla Tour and home to the Pro/Am AlUla Camp, it boasts stunning desert canyons, sandstone cliffs, luxury accommodations, and world-class cuisine. Earlier this year, our passion for this destination inspired us to launch the 'AlUla Explorer - Wonder of Arabia,' a tour that truly captures the beauty of the region. Immerse yourself in a region where ancient history and modern luxury meet, making for an unforgettable cycling adventure.
