Abu Dhabi, 8 June 2016 – Abu Dhabi Tour – the
professional cycling race which will be run over four stages in the
emirate from 20-23 October this year – sets its promotion wheels in
motion at the Abu Dhabi Sports Festival which begins this
Thursday (9 June) and runs until Friday 5 August at the Abu Dhabi
National Exhibitions Centre (ADNEC).
At the festival, which is organised by Abu Dhabi Sports Council (ADSC),
the Tour will run twice-daily spinning classes and day-long KIDs Art
Labs on a dedicated stand. His Excellency Aref Al Awani, ADSC’s General
Secretary said: “Our goal at this Sports Festival
is to encourage families and individuals who do not normally go to gyms
or sport clubs. We have partnered with the Abu Dhabi Tour to enrich the
programme with cycling-related activities.”
Those wanting to sign up for the classes can do via
MAAlneyadi@adsc.abudhabi.ae or register at the general accreditation
desk beside ADNEC’s entrance. Classes run daily at 8.30pm and 10.30pm
during Ramadan and thrice-daily from 9 July till 5 August with timings
to be agreed and cost 40 AED per hour. All participants will receive a
special Abu Dhabi Tour promotional T-shirt.
In the KIDs Art Labs children get to develop their drawing skills under
the supervision of an Abu Dhabi Tour promoter. All the drawings will be
exhibited at Abu Dhabi Tour ART at the final stage on 23 October and
have the chance to win a kid’s bike as prize.
All children can join the KIDs Art Lab: no registration is required and
it’s free of charge.
