Several roads in Abu Dhabi will be temporarily closed on Saturday, February 24 to make way for the sixth stage of the UAE Tour cycling event.

The rolling road closures will be in place from 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm as the riders navigate the 138 km race, which starts at Louvre Abu Dhabi and concludes at Abu Dhabi Breakwater.

After departing from Louvre Abu Dhabi, the first part of the route will  see the cyclists head to Saadiyat Island and then to Yas Marina where the race continues westwards before re-entering the city through Khalifa City.

The race will then pass over Al Reem Island (Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi) and Al Maryah Island. After passing Qasr Al Hosn, the riders will approach the finale from the south to the north to finish at Abu Dhabi Breakwater.
