The riders will weave through the city passing through Ras al Khor, Meydan Racecourse, Umm Suqeim and Dubai Sports City.

The road closures will also affect parts of Deira, International City, Al Khail Road, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, Nad Al Sheba, Hessa Street and King Salman bin Abdul Aziz Street, among others.
