Al Qudra Cycling Track is a popular destination among Dubai’s adventure seekers and fitness enthusiasts. With 86km of track and amazing views of the desert, you might catch a glimpse of local wildlife – including the Arabian oryx. The track is popular with both professional and novice riders alike, and is frequented by both individuals and groups of friends. Some say that the best time to ride is at sunrise, because the views and feeling of the morning breeze are unparalleled – but the sunsets are just as beautiful. Ensure you plan ahead, as this area has few taxis and much of the track is not illuminated after dark.
