The Sri Chinmoy Cycling Challenge is an opportunity for people to get involved in a global cycling challenge and log their efforts to target a specific cycle distance. It is equally meant for excellent cyclists and amateurs – all cycling enthusiasts are warmly welcomed. You are asked to set your personal goal according to your present capacity and to do your best to achieve this goal. With Sri Chinmoy Cycling Challenge you are sure that somewhere else in this vast world of ours there are others who are joining you and cycling alongside with you in the spirit of oneness and friendship. After each event, the names of participants and their results are published on this web site.


The Sri Chinmoy Cycling Challenge grew out of the 27-Hour Cycling Relay that is happening every year since 2008 in Zurich, Switzerland. In 2011 we realized that there are many people who live too far and cannot come to Zurich with their bicycle to participate. Therefore it was decided that in 2012 additional participants will be allowed to cycle in other places during the 27 hours of the event and their cycled distances will be added to that of the participants in Zurich. We also tried to connect different cycling events under one umbrella: the Sri Chinmoy Cycling Challenge 2012 was born.

In the following years we hope to increase number of participants and the distances. Therefore we invite you to join and make it happen. Be in your heart, enjoy your cycling!
