Participants can enjoy the thrill of an outdoor bike ride while experiencing sights across DWTC, Downtown Dubai, Business Bay and Dubai Canal.
Dubai’s Sheikh Zayed Road will turn into a track for the city’s new cycling event, Dubai Ride, on November 13.
The non-competitive, free-to-enter community event, held as part of the Dubai Fitness Challenge 2020, will take cyclists of all abilities and experiences on a ride through the city’s main artery. Participants can enjoy the thrill of an outdoor bike ride while experiencing a unique perspective of iconic sights across Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), Downtown Dubai, Business Bay and Dubai Canal.
The first event of its kind in the city, announced by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council, will feature two distinct routes – a 4km family ride and a 14km open ride. The 4km ride is open to participants five years and older, across all abilities and fitness levels. The route, which will take riders around Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, offers plenty of photo opportunities. The 14km route, created for cycling enthusiasts who are 13 years of age or older, will take them on a once-in-a-lifetime bike ride through Downtown Dubai, Business Bay, Dubai Canal and Sheikh Zayed Road.
Cyclists must be able to cycle a minimum of 4km, bring their own bike and helmet and register to participate in the ride at www.dubairide.com.
