The Dubai Fitness Challenge will mark a historic moment on November 20, as a section of the Sheikh Zayed Road is turned into a cycling track for the very first time.
"Dubai Ride" will feature a 4km family route that’s open to participants as young as five, plus an extended 14km route for cycling enthusiasts aged 13 years and above.
The event is non-competitive and free-to-enter but it’s important to register and plan ahead.
