Two things you must do in Dubai if you like Cycling

I. TREK UAE store in Seih Al Salam

A trek store is located in Seih Al Salam, Al Qudra Road, Dubai, UAE. And there is a network of 50km of awesome cycling tracks around the store. Perfect for Riding Carbon Fibre Road bikes available at the store for rent for 60 AED (US$16.3) for an hour or 90 AED (US$24.5) for 4 hours!

As we approached the store, we got a glimpse of the Al Qudra Cycling Track. The blurred guy is riding his top-end Triathlon Bike.

There’s parking space for about 200 cars (which isn’t visible in this picture and I have heard that it gets full on weekends). The Bike Parking can be seen in the above picture. There’s also a facility which provides toilets, changing rooms, lockers and showers across this bike parking. And a convenience store and cafe, along with a local ambulance station. I rented a Trek 500 Series Carbon Fibre Madone 5.2 and went to the Cycling Course:

There’s a board at the beginning of the Cycle Track which lists all of the instructions that you need to follow while biking on the track.

II. Byky Stations in Dubai Marina and Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Blvd (Downtown Dubai)

They are available at many more locations: http://www.bykystations.com/en/dubai/locations/ and their Prices: http://www.bykystations.com/en/dubai/prices/ I recommended just two of the above locations because both of them I really love and are so beautiful and you can only get this feel in Dubai. I even recorded a video of me biking around the beautiful Dubai Marina:
