Dubai, November 10, 2023 – In a remarkable turn of events, Dubai’s bustling Sheikh Zayed Road is gearing up for a traffic hiatus this Sunday, November 12, as the city eagerly anticipates the Dubai Fitness Challenge’s star attraction: Dubai Ride.
Dubai Ride: Cycling Through Iconic Routes
The usually vibrant Sheikh Zayed Road will be car-free for one day, paving the way for cycling enthusiasts to pedal through two distinctive routes. Participants can choose between a scenic 4km family-friendly route winding through Downtown Dubai or opt for the more challenging 12km ride along the renowned Sheikh Zayed Road.
Guinness World Record Attempt: Unleashing the HIIT Fury
Adding an extra layer of excitement, this event-packed day will also witness a Guinness World Record attempt for the largest high-intensity interval training (HIIT) class. Collaborating with Adidas, Les Mills, and the Dubai Fitness Challenge, the aim is to create a pulsating fitness experience on the tarmac of Sheikh Zayed Road.
Embracing a Healthy Lifestyle
This unique road closure underscores Dubai’s commitment to promoting a healthy lifestyle through innovative events. The closure aims to provide a distinctive urban setting for residents and visitors to engage in physical activities. While Sheikh Zayed Road takes a brief pause for Dubai Ride, the Dubai Metro will remain operational, offering a convenient alternative for those needing to access the area.
Seize the Opportunity: Register for the Dubai Ride
For those still eager to join the cycling extravaganza, online registration for Dubai Ride is still open. The starting points for the ride include iconic locations such as the Museum of The Future, Al Satwa, Coca-Cola Arena, Business Bay, and Lower Financial Street.
Breaking Records with Adidas: Join the Guinness World Record Attempt
Fitness enthusiasts with a penchant for breaking records can sign up through the adidas app for a chance to participate in a guided workout. This Guinness World Record attempt promises a memorable experience and an opportunity to be a part of history.
Mark Your Calendar: More Road Closures Ahead
This temporary closure is not a standalone event. Sheikh Zayed Road is set to shut down once again later in November for the Dubai Run on Sunday, November 26. These road closures underscore Dubai’s commitment to creating unique events that promote fitness, well-being, and community engagement.
As Dubai temporarily transforms one of its busiest arteries into a haven for cyclists and fitness enthusiasts, the upcoming closure encourages everyone to embrace an active and healthy lifestyle while relishing the iconic views offered by Sheikh Zayed Road.
