Registrations are now open for the event that is set to take place on Friday, November 5, with a choice between two scenic routes, a 14km Sheikh Zayed Road loop or a 4km family route.

Dubai Ride is a key highlight of the Dubai Fitness Challenge, which is part of a vision of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, to transform the city into the world’s most active metropolis. 

The event is organised by Dubai Tourism and Dubai Sports Council, in partnership with DP World, and is open to cyclists of all levels. 

Cyclists have an option to ride around two courses. The 14km route is for ages ten and above and will start and finish at five locations around Sheikh Zayed Road and Lower Financial Centre road, while the 4km is a scenic, family-friendly course around Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard and Burj Khalifa.

The first edition of Dubai Ride attracted a massive number of jubilant cyclists against the backdrop of some of the city's most iconic landmarks.

His Excellency Saeed Hareb, Secretary-General of Dubai Sports Council, commented: “We are pleased to announce the second edition of Dubai Ride. The inaugural edition of Dubai Ride was a blockbuster success with more than 20,000 people of all ages and nationalities taking part, turning the iconic Sheikh Zayed Road into a giant cycling track."

This year’s Dubai Fitness Challenge will offer an action-packed calendar of free fitness events, classes, and wellbeing activities at live events across the city.
