Al Hudayriat Island Cycling

Al Hudayriat Island offers some of the best cycling tracks in Abu Dhabi. Cycling tracks run along both sides of the bridge. One loop measures 5 km in length, while the other is 10 km. Taking a bike ride along the seafront will provide you with scenic views along the way. Those who prefer a later start can also use the cycling track at night because it is well-lit. Besides the Etihad Towers, cyclists can also enjoy the magnificent Arabian Gulf views from the dedicated track.

Cycling enthusiasts and professionals tend to bring their own bicycles. In addition, Yas Cycles on Al Hudayriat Island offers visitors the opportunity to rent bicycles and helmets. Adults can rent bikes for AED 50 and children can rent bikes for AED 25.

On some days, I and my group cycle at 6am to get to the cycle tracks. Restaurants, cafes, restaurants, and the promenade have different hours.
