Following the path of the ancient Mayans more than one and a half thousand years ago, Temple to Temple is the world's first bike race/ tour linking the great temples of Lubaantun to Caracol, Belize. The race/tour kicks off January 29th, 2006, and runs until 4th of February, 2006 and by completing an entry on the promoters Web site, you could be in the event for free..
In association with the luxurious Placencia hotel on the Caribbean Sea, promoters have plotted a 7 day, 750 kilometer, racing tour that takes challengers on and off the pavement through rugged mountains, steaming jungle, caves, local villages, and, of course, Mayan ruins! Support vehicles will ensure the safety of all participants, while we will also have a bicycle mechanic available to service your bike after each day of the race.
Every night along the route, riders and support staff will camp (or upgrade to luxurious lodging) in the wilderness, at the foot of Mayan ruins, or at jungle lodges. The registration fee also includes an all-inclusive stay at The Placencia hotel before and after the race (January 28th, 2006, and February 4, 2005), where closing ceremonies will be held.
The winner of Temple to Temple is determined by the lowest accumulated time over the seven day course. The winner will receive a brand new Gary Fisher X-Caliber mountain bike from Curbside Cycle in Toronto, Canada.
