Dubai Ride to take over Sheikh Zayed Road for third edition


Tens of thousands of riders are set to turn Sheikh Zayed Road into a giant cycling track on November 6 as part of the third edition of Dubai Ride.

It will offer participants two routes - the 4km Downtown family route that follows Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard and past Dubai Mall, Dubai Opera and the Burj Khalifa and the 12km Sheikh Zayed Road route from Dubai World Trade Centre to Safa Park.

Organisers added that the 4km route will start at the Dubai Mall, while the 12km route will have five starting gates located at the Museum of the Future, Al Satwa, the Coca-Cola Arena, Business Bay, and the Lower Financial Centre.

One of Dubai Fitness Challenge’s flagship events, 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.
