These new bikes are the coolest way to race – quite literally.
Instead of zooming along the tarmac, the bladed tricycles let you glide seamlessly across the ice.
They’ve launched at Dubai Ice Rink, with a 30-minute session costing Dhs80 per person including the hire of safety gear.
The IceBykes operate in a dedicated area of the venue, so there’s no risk of bumping into speeding skaters.
The only requirement is that you need to be more than 120cm tall. Yes, that’s right – both adults and kids are totally welcome.
Make sure you wear trousers and sports shoes for this one – long and hanging clothing is not suitable, according to the ice rink. After all, you don’t want to slice up that summer dress.
This is a great chance to escape the rising heat and head inside for a cool challenge against your friends or family.
Sun to Tues, 6.45pm-8.45pm, Wed 7.45pm-9.15pm, Thu-Sat, 6.45-8.15pm. Dubai Ice Rink, The Dubai Mall, dubaiicerink.com (04 448 5111).
