On the second day, the team will ride from Nizwa to Jebel Shams.
On the last day, the group will cycle from Nizwa to Jebel Haat and back over a distance of 146 km.
The annual event will feature 37 riders who have committed to raising a minimum of USD $1500 / OMR 600 each for local charities.
The money raised will support children in need through 14 charities across the Middle East and Africa., which includes Dar Al Att’a here in Oman.
