Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 1 November 2022 – The third edition of Dubai Ride, presented by DP World, will take place on 6 November 2022 as one of the flagship events of Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC). The largest community cycling event in the Emirate will offer families, recreational cyclists and cycling enthusiasts the opportunity to ride past Dubai’s iconic landmarks on Sheikh Zayed Road and Downtown Dubai, including Museum of the Future, Dubai Water Canal and Burj Khalifa.    

Participants looking for fun or fitness can choose between two routes: the 12km Sheikh Zayed Road route or the 4km Downtown Family route through Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard.

4km Downtown Family route

The flat route is suitable for cyclists of all ages and abilities – starting at 5:00 AM at Dubai Mall and following Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard around the Dubai Opera and Burj Khalifa.

The advanced route is suitable for more experienced cyclists and includes changes in elevation – it starts at 5:00AM from five different starting gates located at the Museum of the Future, Al Satwa, Coca-Cola Arena, Business Bay, and Lower Financial Centre Road.

Registration is free for both routes. Participants can sign up on the website for their chosen routes and starting location, and will receive a QR code which they will need to present to collect their bib from any of the 3 distribution points at conveniently located malls across Dubai:
