Dubai Municipality announced the opening of Mushrif Park to cyclists every day from 6 am to 9 pm free of charge.
The move is based on the directives of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, to transform Dubai into a bicycle-friendly city, as well as to encourage residents to ride bicycles safely. Mushrif Park is one of the many parks in which Dubai Municipality plans to provide special lanes for cycling enthusiasts.
The park doors are open to the general public at the previously announced times free of charge, and with exclusive tracks for cyclist.
Cyclists are urged to wear helmets and only to use designated bicycle lanes. Cyclists should not ride on the pedestrian paths at any time.
More than one person should not ride on a bike unless it is specifically designed for this.
Appropriate lighting, including the use of front and rear lights, especially during the evening period, along with all other precautionary measures, must be adhered to.
