As Sheikh Zayed Road converted into a cycling track for the first time ever this morning, the Dubai Crown Prince joined thousands of cyclists for the epic Dubai Ride.

Taking to his official Twitter handle, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who also holds the post of the Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, thanked "more than 20,000" riders for their "positive energy and passion".

A video posted on Dubai Media Office's Twitter handle showed Sheikh Hamdan leading from the front.

Cyclists of all ages and abilities were welcomed with "you are part of history" sign on Sheikh Zayed Road.

Part of the Dubai Fitness Challenge, riders were able to choose from two routes - the 14 km one along the city's main road, and a shorter, family-friendly one around Downtown Dubai.
