Dubai Ride’s 3rd edition set in November


Tens of thousands of cyclists are expected to gather once again and turn Sheikh Zayed Road into a giant cycling track.

The third edition of the Dubai Ride is set on November 6 where participants will speed past some of the city’s most renowned landmarks including Museum of the Future, Dubai Water Canal and Burj Khalifa.

Dubai Ride is aligned with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, to transform the city into one of the world’s most active cities.

The event offers participants two main routes to choose from: The four-kilometre Downtown family route follows Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard and goes past Dubai Mall, Dubai Opera and the Burj Khalifa which is suitable for cyclists of all ages and abilities. 

Meanwhile, the 12-kilometre Sheikh Zayed Road route goes from Dubai World Trade Centre to Safa Park. It includes a climb over the Dubai Canal Bridge and is suitable for more experienced cyclists. It will also have five different starting gates located at the Museum of the Future, Al Satwa, the Coca-Cola Arena, Business Bay, and the Lower Financial Centre.

Last year, 33,000 cyclists took part in the event which is one of the key highlights of the Dubai Fitness Challenge.
