Dh400m Dubai cycling strategy will encourage a healthy lifestyle

Sheikh Hamdan authorised the initiatives at a meeting of Dubai’s Executive Council, of which he is chairman.

“We approved the Dubai Bicycle-Friendly City Strategy 2025, which includes 18 initiatives valued at Dh400m,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Our goal is for Dubai to rank among the world’s best for quality of life, with projects that provide healthy lifestyles and a vision aimed at community happiness.”

There are 425 kilometres of cycle paths in Dubai and the Roads and Transport Authority plans to increase this to 668km by 2025.

A bridge for cyclists and pedestrians over the Ras Al Khor Road opened in February, linking the tracks of Al Khawaneej, Mushrif and Al Warqa areas with the residential area of International City, and Dragon Mart mall.

The paths enable cyclists to pedal in their own lane without fear of being run over.
