Rides and Clubs

Although a new ruling in Dubai makes it illegal to ride on any road with a speed limit above 60kph, we are blessed with some great bike tracks and venues.  Building of a new cycle path from Meydan all the way out to Al Qudra is well underway and is planned to be completed by the end of summer 2015
