Let's face it, ice skating isn't for everyone. So, it's understandable that while friends and family get their skates on to zip around the rink, some people opt to give their support from the sidelines.
If you're one of those people who like the idea of enjoying an activity that provides from much-needed cooling during the summer months but are not keen on donning blades of glory, The Dubai Mall's new addition might tickle your fancy.
Now you can zoom across the ice using IceBykes; don't worry – it's in a dedicated area of the rink so the risk of skater and cycler collision isn't there. The bikes cost AED80 to hire for 30 minutes and you'll have to suit up in safety gear to take part.
Kids over 120cm can get involved and all participants need to wear trousers and sports shoes. Check it out at the Dubai Ice Rink Sundays to Tuesdays 6:45-8:45p.m., Wednesdays 7:45-9:15p.m., and Thursdays to Saturdays
