The UCI Golden Bike is a series of Cyclosportive cycling races. At present[when?] it consists of 7 events in 7 countries – 5 in Europe, 1 in Africa and 1 in Oceania – all selected by the International Cycling Union (UCI) as being the best cycling for all events in the world.

The UCI Golden Bike series was created in 1999 to encourage cyclists to live their passion outside of their country and enable them to discover new horizons, in terms of both sport and culture.

The current[when?] events include:

 South Africa - Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour

 Belgium - De Ronde van Vlaanderen

 Italy - Gran Fondo Internazionale Felice Gimondi

 Spain - Quebrantahuesos

 France - Cyclosportive l’Ariégeoise

  Switzerland - Gruyère Cycling Tour

 New Zealand - Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge
