Certain routes in Ras Al Khaimah will be temporarily closed tomorrow, February 22, to make way for UAE Tour 2023, a major cycling event that the emirate is hosting, the police said.

The Ras Al Khaimah Police on Tuesday mapped out the roads that will be affected, advising motorists to use alternate routes. Closures will begin at 12pm, and routes will be opened up once the race has passed through.

The UAE Tour will once again see the world’s top male cyclists descend on the Middle East for seven days of incredible road racing. The first edition of the tour began in 2019, and saw cyclists take the professional Peloton across seven stages of racing throughout the country.

This year, the route for the 2023 men’s tour will start and end in Abu Dhabi, with riders tackling aried terrain in the UAE as they pass significant Emirati landmarks over the week.
