2012 Chinese National Road Cycling Calendar

The chances of stumbling across an elite road or track cycling event whilst in China for leisure or business are pretty slim. A virus-stricken Cycling iQ has switched into “map mode” this week, to help China-bound (or resident) readers increase the odds.

2012 (also the Year of the Dragon, beginning 23 January this year) will mark 60 years of sanctioned national-level road cycling championships in China. Provincial leagues (club racing level), such as the Trek Shanghai race series, are also extremely popular in China; often with mini exhibitions taking place alongside the racing.

Regular visitors to Cycling iQ will know that I am quite fond of charts and maps; this usually intensifies relative to boredom, procrastination, illness or actual need (in that order). Last week, the Chinese Cycling Association released a table of National-level cycling events to take place in 2012. I’ve spruced it up a bit and will update it if there are changes. Notification of updates will be made on the Cycling iQ Twitter feed. [Last updated 25 June 2012]

  2. These events are open to only Chinese riders, with exception of UCI events. For the traveler to China on business and/or leisure, there is actually a whole plethora of cycling events happening every weekend in different locations all over China – both road and mountain bike. These events welcome any cycling enthusiast to join.
