This is a long and enjoyable cycle track; there are bike shops where you can rent a bike based on your size. The track has shorter and longer options; in general quite busy. You can see desert animals on the track if you are lucky. Recommend to go early morning or late evening.

Whilst in dubai on holiday , I had planned a 50 km fundraising ride through the desert.

Bikes - The Trek Cycle Centre hires bikes relatively cheaply and supplies helmets , we hire 2 road bikes for 4 hours and it worked out at £50.

Getting there - We got a taxi from our hotel on the Palm about 45 minutes BUT beware we booked the bikes 2pm-6pm and struggled to get a taxi back . The guys at the Trek shop organised for someone to get us back to the hotel.

The track has shelters , to get some rest bite from the sun , but no toilets or water one you leave the start.

The track is signpost well with markers to tell you how far you have gone.

Its a great experience but boy is it hot , we choose the wrong time but lots of riders were turning up as the sun began to set.

I cannot praise the guys at the Trek shop enough they were lovely.

The Dutch love to cycle so I made arrangements up front to make sure bikes would be available for us. I contacted the store by email and the manager, mr. Royce, has been kindly answering my numerous questions very fast and satisfactory (about the bikes, transport how to get to the store, best chances where to see wildlife, and so on...).
The bikes were well maintained and very suitable for the track, helmets were provided. We had a very beautiful day cycling in the desers, seeing gazelles and oryx.

A very long cycle path- don’t make the mistake of starting at the 18k trail before the desert or you will be very tired before you reach the main 45km trail. The cycle path is safe and away from cars. There is a rest stop with food and convenience items as well as parking. Bike rental prices are very reasonable. Nice scenery not too far from the city.

Excellent cycling paths! During my resent visit at Dubai I also. visited Al Qudra cycling path and I can highly recommend this place!

My challange was how to get there and back from Dubai. Here was my approach:

1. How the get there?
I sign up at uDrive - car sharing - there is one more even more popular car sharing but I wanted to make it simple and uDrive was first I enrolled. The other one is Ekar - both have an mobile app to manage entire rental.

2. Signing up at uDrive was not a smooth process but after several trial of uploading photos of documents, selfie with my documents, visa stamp from pasport etc my application was accepted

3. In Feb - no need to be there so early as the temperature and sun are manageable so I start looking for my car ca 8:30 with the aim to start my ride at 10:00.

4. I found a car near by me and rent it - opening the car was a bit tricky as the GPS location and the GPS of the car was not 100% matched even I was standing next to the car and holding doors waiting to be opened. Buildings are so high which can distruct GPS signal. Just be patient.. or find another car near to you.

5. Once doors opened, it took me ca 40mins point to point to get to Al Qudra

6. I rented one of the bike at Bike Trek shop/rental - they don't have bike shoos to rent

7. Left or right?
The main cycling path is a circle so you need to decide which way to go - and here is a little detail only locals or somebody who used the path already knows - observe other bikers where they go left or right - I felt the difference ca 20km - the dessert wind direction make the difference:-) I wish I new it before my start - even at the rental space they don't rather tell you this. Instead they say you can go left or right - no difference but there is a difference as the wind usually appear there

8. When I return I was charged by uDrive 142 AED - all inclusive (car, petrol, insurance) - whole day rate.

9. Car sharing - there is a term called Business Zone - the zone where uDrive operate - it's not so clear at the beginning if I can go with the car outside the zone or not - Al Qudra is outside the zone - don't worry - I found finally in the Q&A that car can be used in any place in UAE but cannot be left outside the Business Zone - left mean finishing the rental. Of course then we can go to place like Al Qudra and after we cycling we can get back to Business Zone and finish rental leaving the car on one of the parking space

Wish to come back - amazing place to be!

Great experience. Start around or before sunrise because the shortest loop is 48km. Very difficult to get a taxi back to Dubai from Trek Bike Store (where you rent the bokes from) so plan ahead. It’s outside the Uber area currently.

Track is good. Have so many options for Pro and beginner Cyclist. Better use your own bike. However, the track is not secured, at night there are A LOT OF VEHICLES crossing the track. SUV who lost their way irresponsibly dashes and crosses anything even occupying the bike tracks. So dangerous at night because its every cyclist for himself.

Word of advise if you want to use this lane better do it during the day.

We had such a great time cycling at sunrise on the path. It’s super flat so perfect for cycling novices and there are different options for route length. The desert is beautiful, but definitely recommend going early morning to avoid the heat!

This is a long and simple cycling track in midst of the natural environment of Dubai. It's close from the main city and great for a weekend ride.
