Explore Dubai by bike

Explore Dubai by bike

2019-05-07 | Adele

Known as a world class shopping destination, with fast cars and ultra-modern buildings, Dubai might not be seen as the world sporting capital. We do however know that there is no better way to explore a country than on a bicycle, therefore we have compiled a list of recreational cycling routes in Dubai.

Jumeirah Beach

The Jumeirah Beach Bike path is a relaxing ride that runs along the beach with spectacular views of the iconic Burj Al Arab. The 2km path starts at Jumeirah Public Beach and can be extended to a 14km ride by continuing to Umm Sequemm.

Our pick: Stride 29 MD & Spyke 24 Rigid

Dubai Canal

Keeping to the impressive architecture seen in the rest of the city, Dubai Canal is no different. The 3.2km long man-made canal includes running tracks, footpaths, cycling lane and includes scenic views of the city.

Our pick: Stride 27 MD

Mushrif Park

Mushrif Park has a 5km dedicated cycling track that loops around the outer edge of the park. There are some interesting landmarks and café’s in the park where you can stop to rest your legs. Although the track is tarred, it takes you through the dunes so expect some sandy patches.

Our pick: Stride 29 Sport

Nad Al Sheba Cycle Park

The Nad Al Sheba Park offers you the choice of 8km, 6km or 4km loops, perfect for riding circuits. The tracks are well lit at night, so we suggest you grab your night light and a picnic basket to watch the skyline of Downtown Dubai.

What we love about this spot is the 850m skills course for children, which is great for teaching little one’s road safety.

Our pick: Strela Sport & Spyke 20

Al Qudra Cycle Path

Situated in the desert, the Al Qudra cycling track is one of the most popular places to ride in the UAE. Track distances vary between 18km and 86km, taking you through spectacular landscapes of rolling sand dunes.

Our pick: Strela Elite

Sand Dunes

If you just want to have fun and do some exploring, we suggest you take a fatbike and go ride in the desert. The oversized tyres of a fatbikes can roll over almost everything and will float through the sand effortlessly. Go further and explore more by getting an e-fatbike. 

Our pick: Scoop & S-Electro Fat

*Temperatures in Dubai can be hot and humid, remember to drink plenty of water and always wear a helmet.
