More road closures this weekend for Dubai Tour 2016

Time Out has information on more road closures this weekend for the Dubai Tour 2016. Also get details on where the cycling event at the International Marine Club

January seemed to be the month of road closures, with the Dubai Marathon and Ironman 70.3 causing lanes in the emirate to shut down for the respective sporting events.

Now the same is spilling into February as the Dubai Tour takes place this weekend.

Parts of Jumeirah and The Palm areas are expected to be affected as traffic competes with the cycling extravaganza.

Those who regularly take to the roads in that stretch could face problems from Wednesday, February 3 to Saturday February 6 as the professional teams get in their saddles.

Luckily the event will occur in four phases with Dubai International Marine Club serving as a starting point each day.

Stage one goes 179km to Fujairah on the first day, with the Nakheel stage on Thursday taking over the 188km from Dubai International Marine Club and Atlantis The Palm.

Stage three on Friday will end up in Hatta Dam after pedalling for 172km and the fourth and final day will be more relaxing 137km to Business Bay.

Dubai Police are guiding the 128 cyclists – who include Team Wiggins (Sir Bradley’s) and the Al Nasr Pro Cycling Team - down the route.

If you’re not going to catch the action in person, the occasion will be broadcast around the world so curl up on the sofa and tune in to avoid disruption to your travels.
