Cycling is set to be the new mode of transport in Dubai, with plans in motion for 11 new cycling tracks across the city by the end of 2016.
The proposed cycling tracks come after the opening of the 75-km long Dubai Cycling Course in Seih Assalam earlier this year. A popular 25-km route has also opened in Jumeirah, while there are smaller tracks in Mall of the Emirates, Al Mamzar Park and Al Mizhar Park. Construction will also soon begin on four tracks linking Jumeirah Road with four Metro stations on Shaikh Zayed Road.
The Dhs40 million project is part of a Cycling Master Plan that will be completed by 2016.
