Cycling Tracks


About Cycling Tracks

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 (The world leader in seamless & sustainable mobility) as well as its strategic goal of making people happier.

Regulating the use of cycling tracks and authorized areas

The Executive Council Resolution No. (10) of 2015 Regulating the Use of Pedal Cycles in the Emirate of Dubai has defined the conditions for using bicycles, areas where they are allowed to be used, as following:

  • Bicycles are to be driven in designated tracks if any.
  • Bicycles are not allowed on roads with speed exceeding 60 km/h.
  • Cyclist are not allowed on the jogging track or on designated pedestrian lanes.
  • Bike riders are expected to ride safely while exercising extreme caution and avoiding any actions that may put their safety or others at risks.

Note: Cycling is prohibited in metro stations and pedestrian bridges. However, it is allowed to pull a bike on pedestrian bridges and carry foldable bicycles in metro.

Determining speed limits for bicycles

The Pedestrian and Cyclist Design Manual has set an average cycling speed of 25 km/h as a standard speed. According to the manual, the speed limits may be affected by the following conditions:

  • Riding bicycles in surrounding areas.
  • Riding bicycles close to entrances and exits
  • The nature of the track in terms of width and design.

Based on the foregoing criteria, the speed limits have been determined on cycling tracks, as follows:

  • The speed limit on tracks existing in urban areas within the city shall be 20 km/hour, including tracks shared with pedestrians.
  • The speed limit on cycling tracks for amateurs is 30 km/h (Al Warqa Square, Nad Al Sheba).
  • External training tracks remain without speed limit, but cyclists must abide by safety instructions and conditions (Seh Al Salam, Al Qudra).
  • The speed limit in shared areas with vehicles is set at 30 km/h.
