The NAS cycling race starts from Meydan Avenue where cyclists will ride from Meydan Street past Dubai-Al Ain Road to Manama Street. From here, the cyclist will head back via the same route finishing the race where they started. It is shown in red in the video above.

Alternative routes provided by the RTA include the use of routes D67 and Nadd Al Shiba Street when in the Meydan area. As the cyclist will be on Manana Street, the RTA suggests using Aden Street and Nad Al Hammar Street in the Ras Al Khor area. This is shown in green in the video above.

The cycling race is part of the Nad Al Sheba Sports Tournament which is now in its ninth edition. The tournament will take place until April 17.
