Traffic will be halted in phases along the Baniyas - Al Ain route on Saturday, November 12, from 5:00 am to 12:00 pm as riders compete in the very first Bike Abu Dhabi Gran Fondo.

The challenging 150km race, which starts in the capital city will go all the way to the Garden City of Al Ain.

Road closures will also be in place on Abu Dhabi's Corniche Street on Sunday, November 13, from 7:00 am to 11:00 am to make way for the Bike Abu Dhabi Festival Ride, where participants can enjoy a leisurely ride in a safe and non-competitive environment.

Abu Dhabi's Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) has advised motorists to drive cautiously and abide by the traffic rules.
