There’s a new fun outdoor activity for adrenalin junkies to try out at Dubai, as DXBike, the cycling track in Meydan has expanded with the launch of a new Pump Track.
Managed and curated by XDubai, which is the biggest adventure and extreme action sports hub in Dubai, the pump track is ready for anyone with the desire to practice their tailwhip, barspin, and footplant.
What to expect at the new pump track in Meydan..
The extreme Pump Track in Meydan has two tracks that are a total of 1,350 square metres in size. It can be used for any sport on wheels, such as skateboarding, BMX racing and rollerblading.
The smaller track is for beginners and children, and the bigger track is for advanced riders and will be used during competitions.
The Pump Track at DXBike has unlimited transfer lines, more than 30 rollers and seven berm turns.
Visitors can attempt (or ace) bump jumps, speed rolls, bunny hops, moonwalks or even attempt a 360-degree spin on the diverse surfaces of the track with the Dubai skyline as a backdrop.
Now if you prefer night rides, the track is well-illuminated making it the perfect destination for sports lovers. The XDubai Pump Track will be open from 5am to 10pm every day.
Want to try but don’t have the gear? Fret not! The space has everything bikers, skaters, and bladers could need, as visitors can rent protective gear and equipment from the XDubai shop, at the homegrown cycling store LOOP, or the bicycle rental store BikeOn. Rental prices are Dhs20 for two hours or Dhs30 for the whole day.
A one-hour pass will cost you Dhs45 and it’s Dhs60 for two hours. If you’ve got all the energy in the world, try the Dhs90 day pass.
If you want a class, it’s Dhs150 for an hour. If you want to become an expert, there is a three-month pass for Dhs800 or an annual membership for Dhs2,300.
When hunger strikes..
There are a number of food and beverage outlets located around the track, including EggBun, Salt, Joe and the Juice, Flave DXB, LOOP Cafe, and for those choosing to be healthy – Affogato.
