Roads will be temporarily closed across Dubai on Friday to make way for thousands of cyclists.

More than 2,000 cyclists are expected to take part in the ninth Spinneys Dubai 92 Cycle Challenge, which raises money for the Al Jalila Foundation. This year's route has been reversed but still begins and ends at Dubai Autodrome in MotorCity. Residents have been warned that the area will be extremely busy on Friday morning.

"This year’s route reversal will have a significant impact on the road closure and opening times," organisers said.

Cyclists will pedal through main roads such as Al Khail Road and Hessa Street and circle around Emirates Hills.

Residents have been urged to check the road closure timetable to avoid busy streets since timings will differ from previous years.

Traffic disruptions will begin from 5.30am, lasting until around 10am and will affect areas around Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Jumeirah Village Circle, Dubai Sports City, Motor City, Remraam, Arabian Ranches 2, The Villa and the Green Community.

Dubai's Road and Transport Authority and Dubai Police will carry out rolling road closures along the route.
