The definitive Bikepacking/Cycling Calendar

Get your passport ready — for these 80+ Ultra bicycle races around the globe in 2024!

Which big events have you penciled in this year? Below is a host of bikepacking races and long adventures around the globe for you to choose from in 2024. Which one(s) will it be?

PS, for this list we mainly considered bikepacking races and rides of 1000km+, and excluded Audax BRM’s as these can be found on individual randonneuring sites for the respective countries.

In order to deliver this very long list of events in bite-sized chunks, we list the Bikingman, Lost Dot and Transbike Adventures races separately. And all the others are grouped per start month, as it gets very busy during the middle of the year. When the snow melts everyone wants to be on the road. Or in the mountains.
