Since 2020, cycling has experienced a remarkable surge in popularity within Dubai. The city has witnessed the construction of impressive velodromes, bike parks, and a network of bike pathways and extensive trails, catering to cyclists of all skill levels. This trend has extended to various residential communities in Dubai, where dedicated cycling amenities and pathways are enhancing the cycling experience for residents. The enthusiasm for cycling was showcased by the participation of 35,000 individuals in the renowned Dubai Ride, a massive cycling event held last year.

Fancy a cool beachy breeze on your face while you cycle? Then head over to Jumeirah Beach's 16km track that runs parallel to the shoreline, connecting to the Jumeirah Street bike path, and stretches all the way to the Dubai Water Canal and beyond.
Jump on your bike and take a trip along the 12.5km track that starts from Al Sufouh and crosses the outskirts of Dubai Internet City and Dubai Media City to go right into the heart of Dubai Marina. There’s plenty to see and take in along the way, from street and city views to the buzzing vibe of the neighbourhoods of Dubai.
As a part of Dubai’s 2040 Urban Master Plan, which aims to enhance the quality of life of citizens, residents and tourists in the city, a development project titled “THE LOOP” has been announced. This involves constructing a 93km-long, climate-controlled highway with access to key locations and services by foot or a short bike ride.
