More efforts are underway to make Dubai friendly for cyclists.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, has directed to implement international best practices to improve the emirate's infrastructure to suit bicycle riders.

Taking to Twitter, he said that authorities concerned have been directed to update regulations to make Dubai a cycle-friendly city. "The directives, in line with the goals of Dubai Plan 2021, aim to make the emirate a safer place for working and living. Other goals include bringing down death rates related to traffic accidents and reducing carbon dioxide emissions as per Emirates Strategy for Energy 2050," Sheikh Hamdan tweeted.
