His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, inspected a brand-new bike path adjacent to Jumeirah Beach on Wednesday.

The new cycling lane is built along Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach — keeping the Emirate right on track to becoming the most bicycle-friendly city in the world.

The Dubai Ruler tweeted, “As part of my field follow-up today, I inspected the new bike path adjacent to Jumeirah Beach.”

He added, “A beautiful path that we add to 520 km of bike paths in Dubai, which pass across the most beautiful landmarks across the city.”

With the post, Sheikh Mohammed has also assured his social media followers and the general public that he would continue to do field inspections until the day Dubai becomes the best city in the world to live in.

The Roads and Transport Authority said last year it plans to build more cycling tracks that will increase the length of the network to 668 km by 2025.
