Last year, the emirate welcomed the Dubai Cycling Course - a personal initiative by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai.

The introduction of the track was a welcome addition to the array of cycling facilities in the UAE that include Nad Al Sheba Cycling Path, Dubai Autodrome, Al Barsha Park, Mushrif Park, Jumeirah Open Beach Track and Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi.

PUMA are also in on the cycling buzz, with earlier reports on Buro 24/7 Middle East regarding PUMA's Fishtail Rides - that took place in Dubai offering a unique platform for people to come together and ride.

There's a range of other bike dedicated ventures in Dubai including The Cycle Hub; as well as stocking the latest bikes and accessories, it organises bike rides on a regular basis.
