Select A Route

Dubai Creek
Begin with a lap or two of the park first and then head down the creekside, past Dubai Courts and the Rolex Towers and through Bastakiya, following the Creek past the souks and the abra stations on a mix of roads and pavements, eventually arriving at the Heritage Village in Shindagha.

Here, a pedestrian tunnel takes you under the Creek and brings you back up opposite the Gold Souk on the Deira side. You can either explore the front in Deira or head back up the Creek, through Al Ras (with its great views back to the Bur Dubai side) and past the Spice Souk. Follow the long wharf past the abra stations and hundreds of dhows, finally crossing back at the Floating Bridge. This trip is 11.5km long (not including detours in Deira or Creek Park) and, if you do it early on a Friday morning, you can ride right through middle of the souks.

​Jumeirah Road
This is another great place for a leisurely ride and, if you don’t have your own bike or haven’t hired from elsewhere, the Eppco near the Burj Al Arab and Umm Suqeim Park rents bikes. From there, it’s a 13km ride down to Jumeira Open Beach, Dubai Marine Resort and Jumeirah Mosque.

​Dubai Marina
There are several spots along Dubai Marina where you can hire pedal-powered karts, such as outside Dubai Marina Mall and on Marina Walk behind the Dorra Bay building, but this is also a fantastic place to ride. Both sides of the marina feature around 4km of smooth, flat pedestrian walkways and, if you cross the bridges at each end, you can easily create an 8km loop that gives you an incredible view of Dubai Marina throughout. You may have to get off your bike and walk for brief busy sections at the easternmost end of the marina due to the cafes that spill out and many more people strolling along, but the rest is pretty hassle-free.

Abu Dhabi Corniche
You can ride up on to the Breakwater and along to the Heritage Village or Marina Village. If you negotiate your way across the busy roundabout, you can continue your ride past the InterContinental Abu Dhabi and down to the dhow yards and marinas of Al Bateen.
