The District 1 / DXBike Cycle Park and Meydan Loop Road is the area where the majority of the Dubai Roadster’s rides and training happen. We ride in this area regularly, and cars are used to seeing cyclists on the roads in the area.
This is also the meeting point for the Dubai Roadsters group rides. More information about the rides can be found on the Group Ride tabs on this page.
The Al Qudra Cycle Park is a track which runs from near Arabian Ranches out to Bab Al Shams, it runs for a total of around 160km with the recently finished extensions. It is a flat, fast course which is often used for various organised group rides.

One of the challenges in the UAE is finding good hills to train on. They do exist, but you may need to hunt for them a little harder than you if if you lived in the Swiss Alps, for instance.
Maps and reviews of 3 of the better areas to ride hills are below.
Starting at the Green Mubazzarah Park at the base of the road, the Jebel Hafeet mountain road extends for 11.7 km up the mountain, rising 1219 m (4000 ft).
Jebel Hafeet was ridden by the Pro Peloton as part of the inaugraul Abu Dhabi Tour
It was featured as well by the guys at GCN as one of the EPIC CLIMBS and EPIC DESCENTS in the UAE.
With three lanes and 60 corners, this immaculate road was called the greatest driving road in the world by Edmunds.com. The road scales the mountain and ends at a parking lot with an amazing view of Al Ain spread across the desert sands. There is a beautiful hotel, and a private palace at the top of the mountain.
The Green Mubazzarah itself is worth a visit, and is an excellent place to meet family members after a ride. This green expanse at the foot of Jebel Hafeet is a perfect spot for picnics and family outings and during ideal weather conditions, the place is thronged with families out to enjoy the sun.
A popular sight is adventurists who aim to trek up the mountain and pitch tents at the base. In addition to special attractions such as mini train for children and thermal baths, there are also outdoor hot water springs which can be enjoyed by the general public.
There are also chalets at Green Mubazzarah for rent, which are sure to provide you with a wonderful stay experience, if you want to challenge the mountain more than once, or if you plan an especially early start. :)
At 1900 m, Jebel Jais is definitely the UAE’s tallest mountain and is every bit as exciting as a tall mountain should be. Rugged, at times wind -swept, valleys with sweeping views…and absolute isolation.
Enjoy the sweeping views of the valleys and beyond, at the top, where the blacktop ends. From there upwards, it’s a narrow dirt track hugging the rocky edges, so park here and walk up hill. A sharp climb brings you to the summit and its worth every bit of effort.
For cyclists, Jebel Jais offers a test of skill and endurance – what with the roads snaking around tight hairpin bends — rewarded by some of the most beautiful views in the UAE. It affords great opportunities for adventure.
