Dubai Sports City is set to make an impact in the cycling world after announcing Dubai Pulse Race


Dubai Sports City is opening up their facilities on the 7th December for residents in Dubai of all ages to saddle up and enjoy some great off-road fun with the return of the Dubai Pulse Race next month.

The ever-popular community event will return for its 12th edition and is open to keen bikers and casual cyclists of all ages for the family-fun packed day which also has a whole host of activities for all the family to enjoy.

With a selection of routes to follow, including a family-friendly 5km, a 10km for the bit more adventurous and a 20km challenge, there is more than enough on offer to challenge even the most serious of bikers. 

As well as attracting seasoned riders looking to boost their fitness during the UAE cycling season, the Dubai Pulse Race is a great family day out, with an action-packed schedule of live entertainment for young ones.

The Dubai Pulse Race is a great way to spend a cool winter’s morning in Dubai, when the temperature drops and there will be a welcome chill to the air – the ideal conditions for outdoor cycling.

Whether you’re a regular rider or only saddle up at the weekend, the Dubai Pulse Race is the perfect place to meet fellow cyclists, improve your fitness, and make friends with similar interests.

Each of the routes are clearly marked and manned by staff who will be on hand to help with unwelcome punctures or bumps on the day.

Always popular among the UAE’s growing cycling community and families, Dubai Sports City is expecting an even larger turnout at this year’s Dubai Pulse Race with the event coinciding with the highly anticipated UAE Road Cycling Championship.

The fourth and final stage of the Championship, which began at the start of October, will see some of the best riders in the Emirates hit the roads, cycling at speeds of up to 60mph on December 7th, with the event starting and finishing at Dubai Sports City.

Dubai Sports City is looking forward to welcoming riders as well as spectators for the UAE Road Cycling Championship to create a fun-packed festival of cycling.

Post-race activities will include face painting, an inflatable obstacle course, bouncy castle, craft making plus a chance to discover the wide-range of sporting and beverage facilities on offer within Dubai Sports City. 

Vijay Sajjanhar, CFO of Dubai Sports City, said: “The Dubai Pulse Race is one of the highlights of Dubai Sports City’s packed calendar of fun family events, sporting activities and competitions.

“Each year the UAE’s cycling community shows its full support for this wonderful event, and we are looking forward to welcoming back a lot of familiar faces as well as lots of newcomers and their families with the added bonus of watching the action unfold in the UAE Championship Grand Finale. 

“As well as being popular with regular riders, the Dubai Pulse Race is a great introduction to cycling as a hobby with a variety of routes to try. It’s also a great way to discover the wide-range of entertainment facilities we have on offer at Dubai Sports City all year round.

“Cycling is a great and inexpensive way to keep fit and active, to enjoy the great outdoors and the fantastic weather at this time of the year and to make new friends at our regular community and team events.”
