Cycling Track

The construction of cycling tracks in the Emirate of Dubai is in response to the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai so as to provide suitable and attractive options for residents and tourists of Dubai and encourage them to practice the sport of biking. It is also part of RTA’s master plan for the provision of dedicated cycling lanes spanning the entire Emirate. These lanes are intended to be used by an environment-friendly means of mobility or practicing sport; which echoes RTA’s vision of providing safe and smooth transport for all as well as its strategic goal of making people happier.
