Al Wathba Cycle Track

See All

Al Wathba Cycle Track is one of the best and most scenic cycling destinations in the UAE. Surrounded by miles and miles of desert, this area’s ethereal landscape played a starring role in the film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with a cycle here promising picturesque vistas, especially during sunrise and sunset.

The illuminated track can be broken down into several routes. Beginner cyclists can ride the 8-kilometre or 16-kilometre routes, while expert cyclers can take on the 20-kilometre, 22-kilometre or full 30-kilometre routes.

You’ll find this unique track near the Camel Race Track, approximately a 40 to 50-minute drive from Abu Dhabi.
