Dubai Cycling Master Plan
Updated on 25 January 2017

Nakheel is investing Dhs 150 million to bring 105 km of bicycle tracks to its communities across Dubai, with all routes linked to the Government’s Cycling Master Plan.

Safe, scenic bike routes are being created to encourage recreational cycling and promote health and wellbeing among families and individuals of all ages as part of Nakheel’s commitment to enhancing its developments with new facilities and services. The developer is also building a 10km ‘super loop’ for more experienced riders as part of its cycle route network.

The Nakheel Communities Cycling Masterplan will be constructed over the next two years, with phased delivery between now and Q2 2019. Nakheel plans a series of subsequent bike tracks once the first 105 km are completed.

Cycling is one of the fastest growing activities in Dubai, with an ever-increasing number of events, initiatives and groups promoting the sport. Dedicated bike paths are needed to allow both new and experienced cyclists to ride safely, without having to use main roads, says Nakheel.

Work is already under way on a 5 km track at Nakheel’s new Nad Al Sheba community, currently under construction along Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road in Dubai. Other developments covered by phase one are Jumeirah Islands, Jumeirah Heights, Jumeirah Park, Jumeirah Village (Triangle and Circle), Al Furjan, The Gardens, Discovery Gardens and Garden View Villas.
