Wow! Makes Forest Gump's run across the American wasteland look interesting.
How many miles to the next coffee stop?
Is that cycling path exclusively for bicycles? Are any other people/rollerbladers/vehicles/etc. allowed?
Are there many sandstorms? Do you ever get sand blowing in your face? Sand in the drivetrain?
Was actually my very first ride to Al Qudra. This is a cycling path exclusively for bicycles, no other kind of vehicle allowed. There was a runner doing a 50km loop but didnt bother anyone. There was head wind in the first half of the ride limiting avg speed to 30Km/h but no sand blowing around. On the second half, having tail wind, avg speed was easily kept on the high 40s. There is rest area with coffee shop and a Trek store(!!) on the close of the loop. I was told that when gets windy they are having it cleared up all the way!
There is also a very pleasant temp this time of the year, up to 31 Celsius.
