    • 2 Cool Rider October 15, 2009 at 12:50 pm

      Tomorrow one group of riders will go for Beni Suef ride, they will meet 6:30am in front of CAC; the rest of the riders will meet 7:00am in front of CAC as usual.
      We will have the new group scheme CCC1, CCC2 and CCC3 arranged by Friday 23rd of October. visit Regular Rides for more info.

  2. 3 roberto October 26, 2009 at 8:23 am

    hey yasser,

    i will be out of town for the next week so can you, sherif and hisham get in contact and to organize a group leader for the CCC3 ride this coming friday please. i believe your friend at cairo cyclers club posted an ad and there should be quite a good turnout.

    thank you

  3. 5 Cam Snow January 11, 2010 at 11:01 pm

    Does anyone know of a good bike shop in town? I blew out the front fork of my mountain bike and need to get it repaired. Or at the least I need to get some 5wt and 15 wt hydraulic fluid. Any suggestions appreciated.

  4. 7 shaon March 15, 2010 at 3:31 pm

    do i have to take a membership to join this club?

    • 8 Cool Rider March 15, 2010 at 10:04 pm

      Not at all.. all you have to do is show up with your bicycle any Friday 7:00am at the front gate of Cairo American Collage, Maadi.

  5. 9 Haithem April 5, 2010 at 2:05 am

    Hi there…..

    Interesting that I found u!

    Well, I lived abroad for sometime … I always used my bike in my commute…. I am not like cyclist… but I love cycling.

    Anyway, I thought it is dangerous to do the same in Egypt…. but today I decided I will do it … whatever it takes…. So I bought Outdoor bike… Gitane 600…. and all of the sudden I thought maybe someone would accompany me in my rides…. but I found that there is almost well established group out there.

    So simply , do u still gather Fridays ? I would like to join , and I guess CCC3 would be good for me that to understand the roads in Egypt….. Guess what, I can not wait, I am almost going now to try my bike… but I think I should hold my horses :))


  6. 11 Haithem April 5, 2010 at 11:24 am


    Do u know where I can get touring bike shoes? something like Shimano SH-MT31 MTB ?

    Thanks in advance,

    • 12 Cool Rider April 5, 2010 at 1:28 pm

      It depends on your use, if it is for fun rides on fridays then you don’t have to buy a shoe. As for where to buy I’d suggest positng this on the mail list and I’m sure someone would be able to guide you.

  7. 13 Haithem April 5, 2010 at 1:23 pm

    Sorry , Another question …

    What I bought is a rather recreational hypired bike (Gitane outdoor 600)

    I do not know if it was right choice…. or should I have bought a kind of road bike maybe with flat bar for more comfortable seating !!?

    I would appriciate your answer, as I did not use the bike yet, so I maybe able to change it.


    • 14 Cool Rider April 5, 2010 at 1:30 pm

      Again this depends on your use.. almost all the guys in our group have road bikes for riding on the road on Fridays, or mountain bikes for riding in Wadi Degla on Saturdays.

  8. 15 Haithem Trabeek October 6, 2010 at 4:11 pm


    Any rides soon, I can see that you did not have any activity since May this year…

    I have been doing 40-60 KM every friday for the last 5 months, but I was doing it alone…. And now I would like to have a ride on a group… I am not sure if I really can make it the 125 KM ein sokhna or not… but I would love to give it a try.
    Commenting on my questions in previous chat up(was in April 2010) , and I came very long way from there :))) I actually bought another bike it is Tri bike. so it seems that I just love it 🙂

    Salam and waiting your reply.

    • 16 Cool Rider October 9, 2010 at 4:07 pm

      We ride every Friday. We meet by CAC, Maadi at 7am and start our 70 to 90km ride. You’re welcome to join us anytime.
      The blogging talks more about events like traveling form Cairo to Sukhna or to Sinai, however regular rides goes on.

  9. 17 afrikanklammer December 22, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    Hi there

    I’m a swiss guy who live in Cairo for 4 month (until march 2011). I like biking and I miss this activity here.
    Cause I stay for a limited period, I don’t want to buy a bike here. But I would like to know if there is any kind of possibility to rent or to borrow a bike to participate to a ride on friday or for other discover by bike.

    Thanks for your information.

  10. 18 Seth December 26, 2010 at 4:44 am

    i will be moving to maadi in february of 2011. please send information about weekly rides. i look forward to meeting and riding with new friends.

  11. 19 mostafa April 6, 2011 at 11:19 pm

    are you still riding at the preseht or you stopped the activity ?

  12. 20 lindsmo July 29, 2011 at 7:06 am

    I’m moving to Maadi in 3 weeks and would like to buy a good woman’s hybrid bike (looking for a TREK 7000 or something similar) shortly after the move. Any suggestions on where I can pick one up?

  13. 21 lindsmo August 28, 2011 at 7:11 pm

    So I moved to Maadi and found a bike. I stopped by the CAC this past Friday at 7 but didn’t see anyone there. I kind of guessed that the group might be taking a break for Ramadan. I would really like to join some people to bike around. If anyone one has any information on when and where the next meet up would be I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you kindly, Lindsey

    • 22 Cool Rider August 28, 2011 at 8:58 pm

      Hi Lindsey,
      Yes some people were off during Ramadan and during the summer vacation as well but mostly the people would meet up by 6:00 or 6:30 to avoid the heat. Next Friday, 2nd of September try to be there 6:30 and you will definitely meet up with the rest of the group.


      • 23 James August 30, 2011 at 1:59 am

        I too am new to Cairo and would like to join you on the ride this Friday, September 2nd. If anything changes with the ride start time this Friday please pass it along. I have to make arrangements to get to the CAC, so don’t want to get there and no one be there.
        I look forward to riding with the club and learn places I can ride to get my training in. I was training for Ironman Texas, but not sure that will happen now that my wife and I are relocating to Cairo. Thanks.

  14. 24 Kathryn September 17, 2011 at 12:13 pm

    I moved to Cairo two weeks ago and expect my bike to arrive in about a month, so I am glad to see the rides are still going and the group is still active (especially after the revolution and new security considerations)!

    James, I did IMFL in 2008 and for 2012 am looking at the Abu Dhabi International long course. The bike portion is about the same as the IM distance, so I would love a training buddy. This race is in March and I think IM Texas is also in the spring, right? I only raced Oly distances this past year, so I have a lot of work to do, but if you are interested, let me know – kafryn99(at)yahoo.com. I live in Doqqi, but my car should arrive at the same time as my bike, and I have two roof racks, so I’d be happy to drive to any take-off point. Depending on the day, heat and wind, my av. speed is 19-21 mph.

    I’ll check back when my bike arrives and look forward to meeting everyone one Friday morning soon!

  15. 25 Daisuke Iijima September 25, 2011 at 10:00 pm

    Hi I am planning to travel from Aswan to Luxor for two days with my mountain bike, meaning I have to take nearly 100km per day. If anyone saw this message and have similar experiences in Egypt can give me some advises please. I am 39yrs, men. Usually I run my bike to Dokki to near Kattameiya golf club for 1 and half hour in weekend.

    Thank you.

  18. 28 Haithem March 18, 2012 at 2:09 pm

    hi there 🙂 I am wondering if anyone here aware of a private triathlon trainer in Egypt who I can hire ??

  19. 30 Thomas April 9, 2012 at 3:41 pm


    I will move in the month of May for about 3 years to Cairo and starting to get myself organized, and beside others looking for a road bike club.
    Based on your homepage it looks like you have people who meet every Friday.
    Since the last posting is a while ago, I am wondering if the club still exist.
    If so is there a contact name, email or phone number with whom I can check the details?

    • 31 Cool Rider April 9, 2012 at 10:50 pm

      yes people still meet every friday.. if you have a road/race bike you are welcome to join and it helps if you email the mailing list: cairocyclistsclub@yahoogroups.com

    • 32 Timo June 10, 2012 at 10:44 am

      Hi Tom, I’m in the same situation and just posted a similar question some minutes ago :-). Were you lucky? Tomorrow I’ll get my goods shipped and don’t know which bike to pack. MTB/Race – best both…
      CU @ friday from July onwards…

  20. 34 Ma'at September 2, 2012 at 7:19 am

    Hi fellow cyclist,
    Im so excited to find you guys! I’m an avid female cyclist from the US and will move to Cairo in a few months. I’m looking to ride with a group avg speed on flats 18 -21. Can you tell me if I’m allowed to cycle in the kits we wear in the states or as a female would I need to race in long pants and long sleeves?
    Thanks in advance for your advice,

    • 35 Jose January 22, 2013 at 10:44 pm

      HI Ma’at
      Dont know if u had a response already or if u are in Egypt by now…as per women, it is advisable to wear something at least below the knee and sleeves that cover the shoulders if you are riding with the group…not very advisable to ride by yourself. Cheers.

  21. 36 Khaled Khalifa September 22, 2012 at 10:57 am


    I wanted to join the club. I just wanted to know if their is an age requirement, if not what are the procedures to join. I usually went cycling back in the US, but I wouldn’t consider myself an expert!

    Looking forward to hearing from you!



  22. 37 Fouda October 3, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    Good Evening,
    I have been looking for an active cycling group as some Rotaractors and I, would like to cycle this Friday morning .. But when i checked the web,
    i didn’t find any suitable route for us, as we wanna start the route from Sheraton, or any other area in Heliopolis.
    So i would like to know if there is any possible way for us to do that next Friday inshallah ???

    Hi, I have a friend who’s doing a cycling around the world tour on bicycle and he’s in Cairo now, his odometer broke down, can anyone suggest where can one find or fix odometer in Cairo?

  24. 41 Amr January 13, 2013 at 10:00 pm

    I live in 6 October and have been looking for a group to join for weekly rides. Is this group open for new members? I’m new to road cycling. I have been doing one ride a week of around 50-70 Km for a few months at an average speed of 25 km/hr. Is this a reasonable level to join your rides? If so, how can I know more about your upcoming rides? Do you know of any groups that go on similar rides closer to 6 October?

    • 42 Jose January 22, 2013 at 10:47 pm

      Hi Amr,
      We usually ride around 90-120 km on fridays, sometimes the group is divided in 2 (long-short rides), 25km is pretty reasonable, but it depends the type of terrain in which u are doing that speed in. Usually we keep a bit more than that but on the road to Aihn Sukhna, so you can always come and try…cheers.

  25. 43 Lina ALaa March 23, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    Could you give me a contact to call so that i would be able to ask about more details and join.
    Thank you

  26. 44 Jonathan Newcomb October 9, 2013 at 11:13 am

    Hi, great blog. I’m hoping to pass through your way and was hoping you can help me with some information.
    I was going to take the boat from Iskenderun to Port Said with Sisa Lines. I have since found out this service has suspended.
    Can you recommend an alternative passenger boat service that will take me from any of these countries – Cyprus, Turkey, Lebanon or Israel. I am currently in Alanya Turkey. I’ve been Googling like mad but all it seems to find is old information, rumor and here say!

    Many thanks

    I relocated to Egypt a few months ago and finally getting settled. I guess I live in the wrong neighbourhood (Garana), but I can also drive, not just ride :). I’d like to join tomorrow for a comeback after half-a-year interruption, is the ride on, can anybody confirm? And tell me what bike to bring, road or MTB?


  37. 55 Radu June 29, 2015 at 4:28 pm
