The 2013 edition of the Tour de Bintan remains an epic cycling challenge in a high-quality cycling environment on beautiful Bintan island, only a short ferry ride from Singapore.
For Gran Fondo cyclists it will be about completing the “Big Ride”. Cyclists have now the choice of three distances - The Double (250km), The Classic (150km) or The Challenge (82km).
For the competitive cyclists, it will be a 3-stage tour, starting with last year’s successful time trial prologue (Cat 1, 2 and Women) and culminating in one single big stage of over a 100km on Sunday, expected to provide a more exciting competition and a bigger challenge.
Good luck with your training, and see you on the road!
"The Tour de Bintan is a great race with scenic surroundings, a varied terrain and certainly a testing route!"

Colin Robertson, Category 1 Winner
Congratulations on a great Tour de Bintan 2012, it was a great event and everybody I spoke with said pretty much the same. Very well organized! But seriously, I think the nice thing about this race is that people can race at their own level, and ultimately everybody is racing against themselves.
Robert Jan Fernhout, Gran Fondo
Thanks for a GREAT event!! Excellent roads, great logistics, very good team dinner, the list of great things is long.
Aron Åkesson, Category 2
